Christmas butter cookies

Form a well worked dough if too liquid add flour, on the contrary if too solid add a tablespoon of milk.
Remove the dough from the bowl.

Using a sac a poche and a star-shaped nozzle, ( open star tip 6B ) form the cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Leave to rest in the fridge for an hour.
Bake at 350° F (180°C ) for 10 minutes, the cookie should be white.
Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack.

For decoration

Melt the chocolate for a few seconds in the microwave
Glaze some cookies with melted chocolate
Decorate some cookies with powdered sugar and candied fruit or jam.

Serve them up with this great creamy hot chocolate recipe and enjoy the holiday season!

Storage: Wait for the cookies to cool completely then store in an airtight container. They will stay fresh for up to 5 days. These cookies are sturdy and well-packaged for edible gifts. When the cookies and decorations have cooled completely, add them to the bags and seal them tightly. Do not package the cookie while still warm! You can definitely freeze these cookies, but I would recommend freezing them without the chocolate. Let the cookies cool completely and then wrap them in baking paper in a single layer. Store them in an airtight plastic bag or freezer-safe container. They should be good for up to a month.

  1. These are so professional. I love how the dough turns out, how it is to work with and how the finished cookies turn out, making me feel so proficient! Love the butter and honey and egg yolk creating such an enriched dough, too.

  2. One of my favorite Holiday cookies. Had no idea they were this easy to make. Will be baking a batch ASAP!
