The best part of the holidays is getting to indulge in all the Christmas cookies. But as much as I love eating them, I equally love making them. Baking has always been kinda like a meditation to me, especially during the festive season while listening to Christmas songs, there is nothing better than that. I had so much fun baking & decorating these beauties “sweet as sugar snowflake cookies” as I like to call them. They are sooo heavenly delicious and easy to make. Easy to make ???!!! YES, I know they look like a bunch of work, but they are not… Because, as much as I love baking, I usually prefer simple recipes. Whenever I consider any recipe, the first thing I’m thinking of is what ingredients I can remove and how I can simplify it.
So, here is my 6 ingredient super delicious sugar cookie recipe, that is also suitable for vegans.
- 500g glutenfree flour (if you prefer regular flour, you can totally use it)
- 250g margarine
- 250g sugar
- 2 eggs (if you prefer to make it vegan, use egg replacement)
- 1 vanilla suger
- 1 tsp. baking soda
Mix all ingedients together, until you have a solid dough. Shape dough into 1 big discs; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Let discs stand at room temperature until soft enough to roll out. Roll out the dough and grab cookie cutters.
They work beautifully if you want to attempt detailed snowflake cookie cutters like I did, but you can also use any kind of christmassy cookie cutter. After cutting out your cookies place on a baking tray and put it in the oven.
Bake on a nonstick or lightly oiled pan for about 10 minutes, till just barely golden brown on the bottom edges.
To give those beauties the ultimative christmassy touch, I love adding a bit extra sparkle… “Maya style” haha, – The frosting decoration is also so simple, it’s ridiculous.
- The decorating frosting is just an easy mix of powdered sugar and water, mix both until you have a chewy texture.
- Frost them completely or draw a fine line on the outter or inner cookie
- Decorate with silver pearls.
Hope you guys like this recipe as much as I do?! And if you recreate them, make sure to let me know how they turned out.
