Making cookies is the ideal hobby to share sweet moments with family during Christmas time!
MAKES 80 COOKIES
READY IN 1h
14 oz butter ( at room temperature)
9 oz sugar
1 pinch of salt
2 whole eggs
1 egg yolk
19,5 oz 00 flour
1 oz cocoa powder
1 oz grated coconut
1 oz chopped hazelnuts
1 oz potato starch
Flour to taste
Cherry jam to taste
Dark chocolate to taste
Sliced almonds to taste
White chocolate to taste
Grated coconut to taste
Milk chocolate to taste
Hazelnuts to taste
STEP 1: MAKE THE DOUGH
Place the butter, sugar and salt in the mixer bowl and start kneading.
Add the eggs,
And the flour little by little.
STEP 2: CREATE THE 4 FLAVORS
Divide the dough into four equal parts and place them in 4 different bowls. Flavor each bowl with a different taste by adding cocoa, coconut, chopped hazelnuts and potato starch.
Mix the ingredients of each bowl starting from the lighter dough, ending with the cocoa one.
You will work one dough at a time, then (to prevent the butter from melting inside the dough) wrap each ball of dough with plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator until ready for use.
STEP 3: CUT THE COOKIES
Dust the pastry board with a little flour and with the help of a rolling pin roll out the dough to a thickness of about half a centimeter.
Using cookie cutters, cut out the desired shapes, then place them in a pan on a sheet of parchment paper.
I chose daisies for the basic dough,
little stars for the coconut one,
hearts for the hazelnut one,
and circles for the cocoa one.
STEP 4: COOK
Bake the biscuits in a preheated oven at 180 ° C for about 12 minutes.
When cooked, let them temper before moving or you’ll risk breaking them.
STEP 5: DECORATE
When cooled, you can decorate the cookies with chocolate, jam and dried fruit.
I stuffed the daisies with cherry jam, decorated the cocoa ones with dark chocolate and almonds, brushed the coconut ones with white chocolate and grated coconut and soaked those with hazelnuts in milk chocolate and hazelnuts.
