Easy Christmas Cookies

After all my talk of Christmas cookies a lot of you guys requested I share the recipe. We attempted them again today (using plain flour) and they were a success! I'm pretty sure I've probably already shared the recipe here before but in any case here it is right from my mum's cookbook: 

This is a combination of my mum's and sister's handwriting...I don't know did my mum get tired and my sister take over?! Haha! Anyway this recipe is the best (just whatever you do don't use self raising flour!) and it's my favourite Christmas cookie one. There's also another gingerbread one my mum used to make alongside this but they've got more spice to them as that recipe includes ginger, cinnamon, cloves and brown sugar instead of granulated. 

Let me know if you try this recipe! The only thing we do different is before baking we coat with beaten egg and add sprinkles/decorations. Then bake in the oven as instructed. Oh, and you could probably get a lot more shapes out of this recipe except that Emilia and I normally eat half the dough...haha oops.  


  1. Love your blog Anna :)

  6. Might have to give them a go! I won't be spending Xmas with my family as they all still live in the UK so I try to be as festive as possible to keep myself positive :) So I think baking cookies will be a fun & festive task to keep my mood up?! Also, then all my friends can enjoy them on Christmas Day - thanks for sharing :)

  7. Awesome! I think I'll try them for my christmas party :)

  8. They look tasty, I'd sprinkle some white or dark choc' over them and than add the sprinkle stuff:) or what 'bout dried cranberries on top with dark choc' coating?! Well:) Wish you and your fam' a gorgeous christmas:)
