INGREDIENTS:

  • 200 g butter
  • 300 g flour + some extra to roll out and cut out the dough
  • 5 g baking powder
  • 100 g sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • hint of salt
  • baking tray + baking paper
  • rolling pin
  • flat object (e.g. a putty knife)
  • fun cookie cutters!

Cut the butter in small pieces. Take a large bowl and add flour, baking powder, sugar, a hint of salt, egg yolks and butter. Mix all ingredients until your dough is firm and smooth. Make a ball of your dough, cover with some foil and let it rest for about 30 minutes in the refrigerator. Cover your work table with enough flour and roll out your dough until 5 mm. Cut out your cookie shapes and place them on the baking tray (use baking paper to avoid sticking), make sure you use enough flour to cut out the cookie shapes! Continue this until your dough is finished. Preheat the oven at 170 degrees Celsius. In the meanwhile, place the baking tray with cookie shapes in the refrigerator. This way the shape of your cookie will remain during baking. Now bake your cookies in the preheated oven for about 15 tot 20 minutes until they are gold brown. Let them cool down..

TIPS:

Use enough flour to cut out the cookie shapes and cool down the dough shapes in the refrigerator before baking. This way the cookies will remain there shape during baking.

Use a flat object (e.g. a putty knife) to handle the cut out cookie dough.
