RECIPE for 2014 CHRISTMAS COOKIES by Spartaco and Cesare
200g Brown Sugar
Salt – a pinch
500g Flour – sifted
1 teaspoon Soda
100g Chocolate chips
Heat the butter and mix the ingredients following blocks and order kneading.
Prepare 3 rolls and make it rest in the fridge for 30 min.
Remove the dough from the fridge, knead it until easy to handle and make it flat. Then roll it out with a rolling pin.
Now….. take your favourite Xmas moulds and..have fun!
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Prepare a oven tray with baking paper.
Bake the cookies for 11-12 minutes, until light hazelnut coloured.
Make them rest and cool down on a wire trivet.
Lovely and simple packaging for a gift, giveaway or placeholder on YOUR Christmas Table as in our case, the biscuits will not last for so long, I believe… : )
