I'm an avid baker, at times almost obsessive. And I guess this is one of those times, Christmas makes me want to bake =) I have lots of favorites that I make every year and I always try to find new recipes to try. This recipe is one that I've been wanting to try for a while but I thought it'd be a good Christmas cookie.
The cookies are easily made and contains cinnamon - and usually are cut out with a heart cookie cutter but I thought it would be kind of cool to use a foot cookie cutter and call them sandy feet, since they look exactly like a foot after being on the beach.
(makes about 40 cookies)
175 g /6.1 oz unsalted butter
1 dl / 0.4 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
4 dl / 1.7 cups all-purpose flour
Egg-wash + sugar and cinnamon mixture
- Cut the butter into cubes.
- Place the flour and sugar a blender or a mixer and add one cube of butter at a time until all the cubes are added and the dough is crumbly. Add the egg yolk and mix till the dough is throughly incorporated.
- Wrap the dough with some plastic and place in the fridge for 2 hours.
- Roll out the dough with a rolling pin, 2-3 mm thick. Cut out cookies with a cookie cutter of your choice.
- Place the "cookies" on a baking tin lined with a baking sheet.
- Egg wash each cookie and sprinkle with the sugar and cinnamon mixture.
- Bake in a pre-heated oven, 200 C / 394 F for 8 min.
- Cool on cooling rack and store in an airtight container.
