Vanilla sugar cookies with the craft company.

Hello lovelies,

Today I have a baking post for you. These seem to be popular so make sure to let me know what you think. The lovely people at The craft company sent me over some bits to review so I thought i'd show you my take on cookie decorating. Enjoy!

  You will need 
140g icing sugar 
250g butter cubed (I used stork baking margarine)
1 egg yolk 
1 tsp vanilla extract
375g plain flour 
Dr oetker designer icing in White* and Pink* 


 Step 1... 

Put the icing sugar, butter, egg yolk and vanilla extract into a bowl a mix together until well combined. 

 Step 2... 

Fold in the flour until the mix starts to clump together then use your hand to bring it together into a ball.


Step 3...

Roll out the dough on a well floured surface and cut into shapes using your cookie cutters. 

 Step 4...


Bake for 10 - 15 mins on 190 or gas mark 5. Hopefully they should look a little like the ones below!


Step 5...


Leave the cookies to cool for about a hour and then decorate. Here's how I decorated mine...


So that's it, I urge you to try these there so easy to make and taste great to.

 Whats your favorite thing to bake?
