ALPHABET COOKIES

Monday, 17 July 2017





I was inspired by pictures of alphabet cookies on Pinterest. So, I thought I’d bake some for the kids. They turned up quite well and the kids loved it.

Adapted from Just one cook book


INGREDIENTS:

1½ cup (200g) all purpose flour
½ cup (110g) sugar
6 Tbsp. (85g, ¾ stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 tsp. baking powder
Pinch of salt

METHOD:

1.  Sift flour, baking powder and salt.
2.  Combine sugar and butter in the bowl. Whisk on high speed until fluffy, about 2 to 3 minutes.
3.  Add the beaten egg and mix to combine.
4.  Add the flour mixture and mix on low speed until flour is incorporated.
5.  Roll the dough into a ball and wrap it in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
6.  Preheat the oven to 350F (177C).
7.  Roll out the dough on lightly floured surface, to ¼ inch thickness. I put the long cooking chopsticks (it’s about ¼ inch thickness) on both side of the dough and roll the dough to keep the same thickness.
8.  Cut with alphabets cookie cutters and place on tray line with non-stick baking paper.
9.  Bake until golden brown, about 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool completely on wire rack. Store the cookies in an airtight container.
10.  I doubled the amount of the recipe. With the extra dough I made some cute dog bone shaped cookies.
