Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 190deg C. Keep 5-6 ungreased cookie sheets on hand.
  • Beat the butter and sugar till fluffy and light.
  • Add the salt + vanilla essence + almond essence and beat for 30 seconds.
  • With a spatula mix in the beaten egg.
  • Put in all the flour in one go, and gather together to make a firm dough.
  • Chill for at least 30 minutes in wrap.
  • Roll out to ¼ inch thickness and cut with assorted cookie cutters.
  • Bake on ungreased cookie sheets for 12-14 minutes, watching closely so that they don’t get too brown.
  • Remove from oven; let the cookies lay on the sheet for a minute. Remove to racks to cool.
  • This recipe makes approximately 8-9 dozen 1 ½” small cookies.
  • Now the difficult part...for beginners, that is:
  • Use about 1 cup of powdered sugar mixed with just enough water to make it thick & flowing.
  • Colour according to requirement, and drizzle it on the cookies.
  • I leave them to dry out overnight, and sometimes give them a minute in a hot oven to get rid of any moisture (depends on the weather actually). Practice makes this one better each time.
  • I had so many pictures...hve uploaded them onto my foodpage
