Star Cookies

Sometimes I just want to bake.
Usually on a Saturday afternoon.
My focus has been on cookies lately.
Probably because it is something that is a lot of fun to do with Heidi.
Rolling out the dough, cutting out the shapes and eating the dough.

I think that I stumbled across the best sugar cookie recipe ever.
It is from a children's cookbook and it is really easy!


125 gram soft unsalted butter
125 gram sugar
1 egg
250 gram flour
100 gram dark chocolate (melted)


Beat the butter, sugar and egg until light and creamy.
Add the flour and mix with your hands until you get a soft dough.
Place on a lightly floured surface and knead into a smooth dough in about two minutes.
Cover in plastic foil and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
Grease an oven tray.
Roll out the dough to about 5mm thick by placing it between two sheets of baking paper.
Use a star shaped cookie cutter and cut out as many shapes as you can get out of the dough.
I used a small one and managed 40 little stars.
Bake for about 15 minutes, until the cookies are golden.
Let them cool and melt the chocolate.
Place half a teaspoon of melted chocolate on the back of half all the cookies. The place the other half of the cookies on top and sandwich them together.

Now drizzle some melted chocolate on top of the cookies and dip them into hundreds and thousands for a bit of colour.
