Santa Cookies (In metric measurement, for conversion go to http://www.thatsmyhome.com/recipes/converter.htm)Ingredients:
- 200 gr flour
- 1 tea spoon baking powder
- 50 gr ground almond (or flour)
-125 gr icing sugar
- 1 package of vanilla sugar or aroma
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- little salt
- 3 egg yolks (use from cooked eggs)
- 160 gr margerine
For the icing colour:
icing sugar, water, food colouring, little bit of chocolate
Boil the eggs for about 4-5 minutes (until hard)->cool down->peel until egg yolk is left
Mix margering, sugar, vanilla sugar, cinnamon, and the icing sugar well.
Make egg yolk crumbs and put them into the mixture, add almonds. Mix the flour and the baking powder and add to the mixture.
Put the dough in a plastic foil and leave in the fridge for 2 hours
After that the mixture is ready "to be worked". Roll out the dough (if there are too many crumbs you can roll it out between two sheets of plastic foil) and cut out triangles.
Bake for 10-15 minutes at340 degrees fahrenheit. Let cool down.
The cookies are now ready, if you would like to add some colour ...
...you will only need to mix icing sugar and water (only very little water!!!). In order to get the red colour you can add food coloring. Eyes can be made of melted chocolate.
