Top 3 Tips On Delicious Christmas Cookies
Delicious Christmas Cookies
In today's article, we bring you a few tried and tested recipes for Christmas cookies that you can bake with your children.
Coconut wafer cookies
What you will need:
3 Góralki (You can find these cookies in the Polish section in shops) Grate them and weigh, and add the same ratio of grated coconut
100g of icing sugar
300g of plain flour
200g of 100% vegetable hardened fat
Preparation of Coconut cookies:
Grate the wafers, weigh how many there are and mix them with the same amount of coconut. Add eggs, sugar, flour and fat grated on a coarse grater. And now we knead until the dough is ready. Then we fill the little moulds and bake in the oven to 180° until the top is a little golden. We don't have to grease the baking molds with anything, the fat we grated into the dough will take care of that. When the cookie is ready, we pour it out of the molds and wrap it while still hot in icing sugar, which we mix with vanilla sugar. We store it in a box and let it rest in the cold for at least a week so that the candy softens nicely.
Walnut unbaked balls
100g of nuts,
100g of icing sugar
80g of butter
2 tablespoons of cocoa
coconut for wrapping the walnut balls
Preparation of Walnut cookies:
We mix all the ingredients except coconut together and form small balls, which we wrap in coconut and done! It is good to leave the butter a little soft, but not too much so that the little balls will not be too sticky. For adults, you can put a little rum or rum essence in the dough. If the dough doesn't want to stick together, use a little milk.
Double layered shortbread cookies
350g of plain flour, one hundred
20g grams of icing sugar
250g of butter
4 egg yolks
a pinch of baking powder or baking soda
a small amount of gently grated lemon peel
Preparation of shortbread cookies:
Combine all ingredients into one smooth non-stick dough. If the dough sticks too much, add a little flour, or if it doesn’t stick together at all, add a drop of milk. It is important that the butter is cold when you start to knead the dough, it will get its softness later. It will be tough at first but believe me, it will be worth it! When the dough is ready, roll it out with a roller to about two millimetres of thickness and cut out various shapes, which we place on an oven tray with baking paper. Bake slowly at 180° and take out when the surface of the dough is light brown. Be careful, the cookies are very brittle when hot. Let them cool and stick similar shapes together with jam. (My favourites are strawberry, raspberry and currant jam). These cookies should be left to rest for at least fourteen days in order to be brittle and soft.
Well, we're done! Can you smell it? That's the smell of Christmas!
