- 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour (OR wholemeal flour) - دقيق أبيض
- 100 gram butter - زبدة
- 1 teaspoon baking powder - باكينج باودر
- 1 pinch salt - ملح
- 1/2 cup sugar - سكر
- 1 egg - بيضة
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract - خلاصة الفانيليا
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder (optional) - قرفة
- 2 cup icing sugar - سكر بودرة
- 5- 6 tablespoon water - ماء
- sprinkles - حلوى صغيرة للتزيين
Step by step
- Use a handheld mixer to smoothen the butter and sugar together. Then add the egg and vanilla and beat further until all is mixed.
- In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
- Add flour slowly to the butter mix while continuing to blend. If after all the flour you feel the dough is still too sticky add a 1 or 2 tablespoons of flour.
- Bring the dough together and put it in cling film or a plastic bag and in the fridge to rest for minimum an hour. This will help with rolling it out and cutting.
- Cover a clean work surface with flour and lay the dough in the middle. Rub you roller with some flour too and start stretching your dough on every side - turning it around until the dough is thin enough for cutting.
- Dump your shapes into flour every time before you cutting your shapes.
- Lay your raw cookies on an oven tray, preferably lined with parchment paper. Pre-heat the oven to 180C.
- Place your cookies in the middle of your oven - it only takes 7 to 10 minutes in a preheated oven. The smaller and thinner your cookies are, the quicker they will be done.
- Let your cookies cool for 10 minutes before you eat them or start dusting them with toppings like cinnamon, icing sugar or jam.
- Alternatively, you can be more creative and decorate with icing and sprinkles. For the icing mix the icing sugar with water (one tablespoon at a time) until you reach a smooth yet relatively thick consistency.
- Use a piping bag to decorate the cookies with the icing and add sprinkles on top. Allow the icing to dry before serving.
