Christmas Tree of Cookies

Hi everyone,

Here is another baking session you can make with your little ones and that is perfectly in the season theme.

I bought a set from Central Gourmet. It is retailed at 240 pesos and comes with 5 stainless steel star cutters, a small round cutter to create the centre holes and two triangles (sort of, don’t be picky) that hold with a piece of plastic to slide over the cookies from the biggest to the smallest. Et voila, you have a Christmas Tree of cookies!

Ingredients


For the cookies
  • 250 g of all-purpose flour
  • 50 g of almond flour
  • 1 egg (room temperature)
  • 125 g of cane sugar
  • 100 g of softened unsalted butter
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tbsp of a 4-spices blend (cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves)
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp pf water
For the royal icing
  • 1 egg white
  • 250 g of icing sugar
  • juice from half a lemon

Directions


On ne change pas une équipe qui gagne !

I have the perfect Christmas cookie recipe my family and myself love to nibble on so there is no reason to change a winning team, right?
I will only repeat the ingredients and you can click here to follow the directions. With this kit, I managed to cut out – from the largest to the smallest star size – 3/3/4/5/7 cookies + 1 with no hole.
You can drizzle down icing sugar like I did or decorate the edges with the royal icing. If you already have the star cutters but you dont have the stand to tread the cookies on, dont worry. Prepare a royal icing to hold them together.

For the royal icing: to be prepared right before use
  1. Remember the egg yolk you used to brush the cookies with? Pour the egg white into 250 g of icing sugar and use a spatula (not a whisk) to mix
  2. Add few drops of lemon juice at a time and whip until you get the right consistency – when the batter forms a kind of beak on the spatula
  3. Transfer the royal icing into a piping bag and use a small amount in the centre of each cookie to “glue” them together
