Hello everybody, hope you are enjoying my Twelve Posts of Christmas so far! So, for my fourth instalment I thought it would be a great idea to share one of the cutest Christmas cookie recipes that I know. Yes, I know I just posted another cookie recipe not long back, but I just couldn’t help myself with this one! These cookies are a great activity to bring people together in the kitchen! I love baking these with my sister and the best part is, you can hang them on a Christmas tree! So…lets get started!
- 2 cups self raising flour
- 180g butter
- ½ cup white sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- Pinch of salt
- Cookie icing
- Assortment of sprinkles
- Shaped cookie cutters
- Pen or pencil
- Thin ribbon

- Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F (160°C fan forced)
- Sift flour and salt into a bowl and rub in butter using your fingers until it resembles breadcrumbs.
- Add sugar and beaten egg to the mixture and knead on a floured surface until it stiffens.
- Wrap in plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for around 30 min.
- Roll out onto a floured surface and cut out desired shapes. Repeat!
- Taking the back end of your pen/pencil, make a punch sized hole near the edge of your cookie.
- Placed on a lined baking tray and bake for 12-15 min or until golden.
- Once ready, leave to cool down before decorating with chosen ingredients.
- Taking your string, thread through holes made in the cookies to resemble tree decorations and tie. You could even make a long chain of Christmas cookies to hang around the house!
And that’s a wrap for my Christmas Décor Cookies! Hope you all enjoyed this and are inspired to give it a try! Don’t forget to leave your thoughts in the comments below, and if you do try this recipe be sure to send me pictures!
