Hi guys! Thanks for joining me for Day 5 of my Christmas countdown series 🙂
Today I have something different for you, Christmas Sugar Cookies! I’ll be showing you how to make 3 designs today, a snowman, a poinsetta and, of course, the elf on the shelf.
Do you guys have Elves visit during December? Ours started visiting last Christmas and my children are so excited for her to come back this year!
Arent they cute?!
The Poinsetta is very big so would make a perfect decoration for you Christmas table 🙂
And a very sweet traditional looking Snowman!
Find the video on my YouTube channel!!
My Sugar Cookie recipe:
- 220g unsalted butter, room temperature
- 170g sugar
- 1 egg
- Splash of vanilla extract
- Splash of almond extract
- 400g plain flour
Cream together the butter and sugar, add the egg and the vanilla and almond extract. Then slowly add in the flour until the dough comes together. I use my stand mixer to mix everything. Knead the mixture just to get it smooth and then divide into 2, wrap in cling and then chill overnight. When you want to use it, dust you surface with flour and knead your dough jus to get it flexible again and then cut out. Chill again before you cook, this helps to stop the dough spreading, and put in a pre heated oven at about 180 until golden on the edges.
All my food colours are from Sugarflair, I buy my bags from eBay and don’t bother with tips!
