Happa Happa #6/ Trash Cookies

…Just prepared a simple dough for so-called german „Butterplätzchen“ (butter-based christmas cookies) and then tried out my brand new cookie cutters…

I am not christian, I don’t care about virgin births and stuff, but I like cookies and even better if they look and taste as good as these…

Recipe Butterplätzchen (2 baking trays):

for the dough:

250 g plain flour

100 g icing sugar

a pinch of salt

1 egg yolk

1 Teaspoon baking powder

1 Table Spoon Rum, if you want ;)

200 g butter

For the icing:

100 g icing sugar

different shades of food colouring


Mix flour with baking powder,sugar, egg yolk and salt (and rum) and knead with the butter until you get a smooth dough. Put the dough into the fridge for at least half an hour.

Then roll it (you can take a clean empty bottle for this, maybe empty the rum bottle for this purpose), not too thin, 1 cm and cut out the cookies.

Bake them in the pre-heated oven at 150 °C for around 15 minutes until they turn slightly brown. If you only have one baking tray, it’s important to let it cool down before you use it for the next cookies, otherwise they will melt away right before they get into the oven cause they are butter-based…

In the meantime prepare the icings, divide the icing sugar into several small bowls and add some drops of food colouring and also only some drops of water. Be very careful here, you don’t need much, otherwise it’s gonna be too fluid. You have to find out the perfect mixture…

Then start painting the cookies - Olé!
