We have got lots of tasty ways to make eating right, even at Christmas time. So why not try to make these lovely Christmas Cookies, a recipe that I got from my grand-mother, that I make every Christmas for the greatest enjoyment of my children…
First, here is the list of the different ingredients you will need to make the Christmas Cookies
- 300 g ( 2 1/3 cups) Flour, sifted
- 150 g ( 2/3 cup) butter, room temperature
- 120 g ( 1/2 cup) caster sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- Raspberry, redcurrant jelly or Apricot jam.
Now, here are the few steps you will need to follow to make these Christmas Cookies
Start by Mixing the first 4 ingredients from the list with your finger tips, until becoming a nice dough. Let stand 1/2 hour in the fridge wrapped in a cling film.
After half an hour, take it out of the fridge, then, when at room temperature, roll out the dough and cut out circles the size of a small glass. Make the same number of full circles and circles with a small hole in the middle. Put on a baking sheet and bake in an hot oven (400°F or 200°C) for about 15 minutes.
Once cold, put a little jelly in the middle of the full circles, sprinkle with icing sugar the circles with a hole then place them on the first jellied circle and press lightly to let the two small circles adhere between them.
P.S. You can use cookie cutters of different shapes, like star, ginger man or Christmas trees. At the end, place these biscuits in a tin until the festivities.
