Ingredients for 15 cookies:

  • 190 g butter, at room temperature
  • 110 g icing sugar
  • 300 g all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder

For the decoration:

  • Cookie cutters of desired shape
  • Cocoa Powder
  • Pastry brush
  • Stencils

Method:

  • Add the butter in a mixer’s bowl and beat it with the paddle attachment at high speed, for 4-5 minutes, until fluffy.
  • Add the icing sugar and keep beating for 4-5 minutes using the paddle attachment at low to medium speed.
  • In a bowl, mix the flour with the vanilla and add them to the mixer. Beat for 2-3 minutes until the mixture looks like wet sand.
  • Remove the dough from the mixer and knead it with your hands until it is thick and malleable.
  • Divide the dough into 2 pieces. Transfer one of the pieces to a baking shett lined with parchment paper. Cover with another piece of parchment paper and, with a rolling pin, roll out the dough until it has the same size as the baking sheet.
  • Remove the parchment paper and cut the cookies using the cookie cutter. Follow the same process for the remaining dough, too.

Decoration:

  1. Place the stencil on top of the cookie. Use a pastry brush  to pick up cocoa powder and pat the cocoa powder onto the stencil.
  2. Lift away the stencil carefully. Do the same for the rest of the cookies, then bake for about 15 min (180°C / 356°F)
