Christmas Sugar Cookies


 One of my favourite Christmas time treats are Sugared Cookies, soft in the centre and crisp on the edges, these are perfect for a cold winters night with a cup of tea. Christmas is all about those festive bakes and I really enjoy making these every single year. I love baking around this time of the year, not only does it give that ultimate comfort feeling but it truly get's you in the Christmassy mood! 
  • Ingredients:
  • 375g Flour
  • 140g Icing Sugar
  • 1tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 250g Butter
  • Sugar Icing Pens
Firstly start by preheating the oven to 190C and lining two baking sheets with non stick baking paper. Next up is mixing the icing sugar, vanilla extract, egg yolk and butter into a mixing bowl and stir together with a wooden spoon. Next add the flour and mix into a firm dough, wrap the dough in cling film and chill in the fridge for around 20-30mins. Lightly dust your surface with some flour and roll out the dough with a rolling pin. Cut out your cookies with your chosen Christmas cutters and carefully place them on the baking paper. Pop the cookies into the over for around 10-12minutes until they're lightly golden. Once your cookies are out of the over carefully lift them on a cooling rack and leave to fully cool down before icing them up. I choose to use sugar icing pens as I find them a lot easier to work with and you can honestly purchase them in most supermarkets. I really hope you enjoyed this style post and it has left you wanted to go and make some of your own delicious sugared cookies!




What's your favourite treat to make at Christmas time?

    9. Such a beautiful post, I love the recipe and pretty photographs. Sugar cookies are my favourite treat too, along with a mug of hot chocolate! I made a variation of sugar cookies, in the shape of Christmas stockings, they were a kit and really fun to make. Happy baking and wishing you a merry Christmas! :-) xx
