How long does it take to make Christmas cookies?

  • Preparation : 15 min
  • Cooking time: 10 min
  • Rest : 30 min

Ingredients to make Christmas cookies :

For 4 people:

  • 225 g of flour
  • 125 g butter
  • 1 tablespoon of 4 spices
  • 120 g brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 75 g of candied orange peels
  • 1 tsp. baking powder

The steps of the Christmas cookie recipe :

Pour the diced soft butter and brown sugar into a salad bowl. You can put a little less sugar if you wish. Mix with a wooden spoon.

Add the flour, baking powder, egg and spices. Cut the candied orange peels into small cubes and pour them into the salad bowl. Knead the dough until you obtain a homogeneous ball. Wrap the dough in cling film and place in a cool place for 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Sprinkle your worktop with wheat flour to make it easier to spread the dough. Roll the dough down on your worktop with a rolling pin. Cut out biscuits with a biscuit cutter. Arrange them on a baking sheet covered with baking paper. Make sure to space them well apart, as they will expand during baking. Flatten the biscuits slightly with the palm of your hand.

Bake the biscuits for 10 minutes. When they are golden brown, take the baking sheet out of the oven and cool the biscuits before handling them.

Enjoy these biscuits with dessert or a cup of hot chocolate. Store the biscuits in an airtight box and eat them within 4 days.

Tip: Vary making, for example, Christmas biscuits with Nutella, jam, cinnamon... We love the M&M's® version which will seduce all gourmets with its chocolatey flavour and crunchy texture. Choose red and green M&M's® for Christmas colourful biscuits.
