Blogmas Day 24 : Snowman Cookies
Todays the last day of Blogmas :( But, it's not e=over yet, so enjoy this recipe for Snowman Cookies! xx
Ingredients (Makes up to 24 biscuits) :
200g Self Raising Flour
100g Caster Sugar
100g Butter, plus extra for greasing
1 large free-range egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp. of vanilla extract
White and Blue Fondant Icing
White and Black Writing Icing
Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
Mix the flour and sugar together in a bowl, then rub in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Add the egg and vanilla essence and mix to form a soft dough.
Roll out onto a well-floured work surface and cut into rounds. Place on greased baking sheets and bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.
Cool on a wire rack. When completely cool decorate.
Roll out the white fondant icing and cut out circles the same size as the biscuits, brush the backs of the circles with a little cooled boiled water and stick them to the biscuits, smoothing down the icing as you stick it on.
Roll out the blue icing and cut out more circles, then cut these in half and using a little more water and stick on top of the white icing for the hats.
Brush the hats with water in places where you want the sprinkles to stick and then sprinkle!
Pipe decorations on the hat with the white writing icing, then pipe a small blob for the hat bobble and another for the nose – stick on the chocolate chips. Pipe black eyes and mouth then leave to set.
So, I hope you've all enjoyed Blogmas, I love you all so very much, have a fabulous Christmas and I will see you again on the 30th.
