I like the cookies made by our local baker.
But when I found out how much they cost,
I simply can not buy them again.
Is this about being Dutch?
This basic cookie recipe is perfect
for adjusting, experimenting and mixing in.
And the dough is perfect for cookie cutters.
90 g soft unsalted butter
100 g caster sugar
1 large egg
½ teaspoon real vanilla extract
200 g plain flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon fine salt
Cream butter & sugar
Beat in eggs & vanilla
combine dry ingredients separately,
mix in gently
form in ball, wrap in cling film,
leave for at least 1 hour in refrigerator.
Today we chose for these flavors:
Thumbprint with organic 'More' jam, all the way from Italy.
Pine nut & Rosemary
They sure taste lovely,
but best of all....
baking brings peace in mind and soul.
Have a great weekend everyone!
