Reindeer cookie recipe

Hey readers,

Here is a lovely reindeer sugar cookie recipe to do with children over the festive holiday.

Ingredients

  • 226g butter
  • 200g sugar – light soft brown sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • Icing to decorate
  • eye decoration (optional)

Method

1) Preheat the oven to 160c fan or 180c

2) In a bowl measure the sugar and butter and cream together until smooth.

4) Next put 390g flour and two teaspoons of baking powder into a bowl. Mix all the ingredients together well.

5) We didn’t have a cookie cutter as suggested so we rolled them roughly into little balls until all the mixture is gone.

 

 

 

6) Then transferred the balls onto a baking tray and flatten them with the bottom of a cup measurer to create a circle shape and transfer onto the tray with a  fish slicer. (We saved a small mixture back to make the little noses for reindeer).

7) If you have a conventional oven place them in the centre and if you have a fan oven you can place them anywhere you like.

8) Bake for 10 minutes.

9) Then remove the cookies from the oven and place on to a rack for a couple of minutes to cool down.

10) Then decorate how you desire.

 

 

11) voliva.
