Happy Halloween….to all my Word Press friends….
Hope it is spooky and lots of fun!
In the spirit of Halloween….
I made some cookies and painted them with royal icing….
for giving away, wrapping everyone in plastic wrap….
It is a simple butter cookie dough…rolled it out about 1/8 inch thick and baked…at 375 F until slightly browned.
Here is the recipe…..
Maja’s Butter Cookies
2 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp Vanilla
1 whole egg….use either large or jumbo size egg
1 3/4 sticks cold butter
Mix all ingredients in a food processor…..until it forms a ball….
Cut the dough into 4 parts…
Place the dough onto a board and roll it about 1/8 of an inch thick…
Cut out forms with cookie cutters…
Place the cut out cookies onto a cookie sheet and bake them at 375 F until lightly browned…
When cooled decorate them with royal icing and sprinkles…
1 pound of powdered sugar
2 large or jumbo egg whites
Place these two ingredients into an electric mixer and beat the mass until
It forms soft peaks….
It needs to be like thick pancake batter….
Transfer the royal icing into a pastry bag with a tip…
Transfer the royal icing into a small plastic bag and close it with a twisty….
Cut a very small opening on one of the corners of the bag….and, proceed to decorate…..
I use this butter dough recipe for all my Christmas Cookies!
