Looking for a Christmas Cookie recipe? Why not make these cookies and decorate them to look like a Snowman!
200g/7oz self raising flour
100g/3½oz caster sugar
100g/3½oz butter, plus extra for greasing
1 large free-range egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
For the decorations:
White and blue fondant icing
White and black writing icing
48 small chocolate balls
Preheat your oven to 180/350F/Gas 4.
Mix your flour and sugar together in a bowl, then rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix to form a soft dough.
Roll out onto a well-floured work surface and cut into rounds.
Place on greased baking sheets and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown
Cool on a wire rack. When completely cool you can decorate.
Roll out white fondant icing and cut out circles the same size as the biscuits, brush the backs of the cirlces with a little cooled boiled water and stick them to the biscuits, smoothing down the icing as you stick it on.
Roll out the blue icing and cut out more circles, then cut these in half and use a little more water and stock them on top of the white icing for hats.
Brush the blue hats with water in places where you want the sprinkles to stick and then sprinkle.
Pipe decorations on to the hat with the white writing icing , then pipe a small blob for the hat bobble and a nother for the nose – stick on the chocolate balls.
Pipe black eyes and mouth then leave these to set.
Then you will have Smowman Cookies for Christmas!
