Christmas Butter Cookies (Xristougeniatika mbiskota boutirou)

Hello everyone, I hope that all are well and getting ready for the holidays.  I am feeling better and better each day :).  Christmas is coming up rather quickly, so I decided to start my christmas cookies, so I haven’t made Christmas cookies in years, so I took out the recipe and started making cookies this morning. 

The cookies are simple to make, a recipe that is straight forward and not to much of a mess in the kitchen.  My kitchen is quite small, so I don’t really have much counter space to lay everything all over, so I have to move a few things around to be able to cook and bake.  So, here here goes…..:)



Ingredients:

2 1/3 All Purpose Flour

1/4 teaspoon Salt

1 cup softened Butter

1 cup of  Crystal fine Sugar

1 Egg

2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract

Sprinkles

Sugar Powder

Glaze/Icing

Preparation:

P1000409

In a bowl combine flour and salt and set aside for later use.

Add butter and sugar into a mixer and beat until fluffy.  Add in the egg and the vanilla extract and continue to beat.

Slowly add the flour mixture into the butter batter and beat until it becomes dough.

Wrap dough in a large piece of plastic wrap, then place it in the refrigerator for at least one hour.  This way the dough is hardened and it is easier to roll out.

P1000412

Roll out dough.  Use any cookie cutter that you have on hand.

I have star cookie cutters 🙂  Bake on medium to high for 20 minutes.

Once cookies are baked lay on a rack to cool off before starting topping process.  My chocolate/white icing did not turn out like I wanted it too, so I used sugar powder for most of my cookies as topping.  This recipe makes about 25 cookies…..:)
