SPICED CHRISTMAS COOKIES


December is a time for lots of baking! I love baking, especially baking for people during the christmas season. I made these spiced christmas cookies today and they are super EASY to make! I also love that you can make them into all different christmassy shapes but my faves would have to be the stars and snowflake cookie cutters! The recipes used to make these spiced christmas cookies and basic icing recipe are found on taste.com.

PREP TIME: 30 MINUTES | COOK TIME: 10 MINUTES | DIFFICULTY: EASY 

COOKIES INGREDIENTS

❆ 1 cup plain flour
❆ 1/2 cup brown sugar
❆ 1 teaspoon cinnamon
❆ 1/2 teaspoon mixed spice
❆ 75g unsalted butter, chopped

STEP ONE: Line two baking trays with non stick baking paper.
STEP TWO: Sift flour, sugar and spices into a large bowl. Using fingertips, rub in butter until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. add golden syrup and mix to form a soft dough. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and knead for one or two minutes until dough is smooth. cover with plastic wrap and chill for thirty minutes. 
STEP THREE: Preheat oven to 180c or 160c fan forced. Roll dough on a slightly floured surface until 5mm thick. Using cookie cutters, cut shapes from dough. Place on prepared trays, allowing room for spreading. Chill again for ten minutes. 
STEP FOUR: Bake for ten minutes until pale golden. Cool on trays. Decorate with basic homemade icing or whatever suits you!
