Author Sharmilee J

Ingredients

  • 1 and 1/8 cup wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 no egg yolk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp milk (only if needed)

Instructions

  • Beat butter and powdered sugar until light add vanilla essence and salt.I used my electric whisk, you can use manual whisk too.
  • Add an egg, beat until fluffy then add the flour.
  • Mix well when it gets stuck to the electric whisk, add milk and combine.
  • The dough should be soft and sticky.Take your cookie press.I recently bought this cookie press from homecenter in a great sale.
  • I used snowflakes and christmas tree disc.Start pressing directly on the cookie tray.If you prefer you can slightly grease the tray but I didnt do.Don't use butter paper or parchement the cookies may not come out perfectly.
  • While you press the cookies, preheat oven at 180 deg C for 10 mins.Repeat to finish the dough.Add silver sprinkles or any of your favorite.
  • Bake in preheated oven at 180 deg C for 8-10 mins or until the edges start to brown.Gently remove the cookies when its still warm.It will be soft when warm, after cooling down becomes crispy.But don't forget to gobble atleast a few when warm, yes it tastes so good.You can thank me later.:)

Notes

The dough should not be tight.It should be sticky only then the cookies will be pressed out perfectly.
