I found these beautiful cookie cutters abandoned on a top shelf of an arts and crafts store, of course I had to have them for myself and make my little girl the happiest in the world when she carried these sassy looking cookies to school.
1. Cream with mixer
100 gr. soft butter
1 Cup sugar (I used a 1/4 of the cup with brown sugar)
2. Add while still beating (beat until beautifully creamy)
1 eggs, 1 Tsp. vanilla extract, 1 TBS. milk
3. Sift together
2 cups + 2 TBS. all purpose flour
1 Tsp. baking powder
1TBSP. ground cinnamon
pinch of salt
4. Fold the dry ingredients into the cream and then work with your hands till the dough is soft and uniform
Place the dough on a floured surface and roll it until its about 4 mm tall. Use your cookie cutters to shape the cookies and place on a buttered cooking tray. Be careful to let some space between them as they grow a bit to the sides.
5. Place in hot oven (about 200 º C) for about 10 mins. or until you see them slightly tan.
For the icing I used a mix of lemon drops and icing sugar with food pigments.
Last but not least to make a little girl´s delight; decorate with your favorite sprinkles!
