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.
