Christmas cookies

Ho, ho, ho!ย ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿฝ๐ŸŽ„

Christmas is coming (only 7 days left, I REPEAT only 7 days left!!) and I’m more excited than one can be. Therefore I decided to make some Christmas cookies to get in the mood.ย ๐Ÿชโœจย 

One thing is sure: these cookies can be made by everyone. It’s a super easy recipe and the decoration is all up to you, they’re even delicious without extra toppings.

What do you need:
๐ŸŒŸ 400gr a mix for ginger cookies (I know, I know; kind of ‘lazy ass-like’)
๐ŸŒŸ 50ml of water
๐ŸŒŸ 100gr of butter/margarine
๐ŸŒŸ topping of your choice (I used white glaze and Christmas themed edible decorations)

Instructions:
๐ŸŒŸ put all of the ingredients in a bowl and knead it until you get a smooth dough.
๐ŸŒŸmake small circles/squares/other forms of the dough. You can use a small glas/bowl/mug for this! tip: put some flour on your ‘work area’ย before you mould your shapes, so that they won’t stick to your surface.
๐ŸŒŸ put it in an oven of 180ยฐC for 7-8 minutes if you want them to beย soft. If you wantย them to be crunchy, leave them in longer. The exact time isn’t really predictable, since it depends on how thick/big your cookies are and how you like them. Mine were in the oven for 8 minutes and they were still soft.
๐ŸŒŸ decorate them!ย tip: you can easily make your own glaze by mixing some icing sugar and a little bit of water together. Add some edibleย colorant of your choice and you have yourย own colored variant.

Have a delicious pre-christmass time!
