Recipe for Christmas goodness

Standard

Today I shared some pictures on Instagram of my baking-cookie-process, and not least the result afterwards.

One asked for the recipe, and here it is, in case anybody feels the need to bake something yummy.

Mix-

300 grams of butter
150 grams of icing sugar
400 grams of flour
2 eggs
I teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
50 grams of finely cut almonds
50 grams of finely cut dark chocolate

Knead, knead and knead. For ages. Until its a nice textured dough.
Add more flour if needed.

Roll it out flat.

Roll out 400 grams of marcipan with some icing sugar.

Place the marcipan piece on top of the cookie dough. Roll it together.

Cut it in smaller pieces and roll it smaller. Cut it into 4 mm pieces and place on baking tray. Bake until crispy. Approx 15 mins, but will vary from oven to oven.

Let them cool for as long as you can wait.

Then eat with milk. Lots of milk.

The roll is not that visible in the cookie, but you can see it up close. And you can taste it!

– good thing I have two classes in the gym tomorrow…

The bottom cookie is a different recipe. Also good. Just if you think they look very different, that’s why.
