Baking Christmas Cookies

Hey my loves,

in today’s blog post I am sharing with you my favorite cookie recipe I like to use for baking. Christmas is a time where I spent most of my days in the kitchen, I just love every taste of Christmas and I love Christmas baking.

This recipe is super easy and super quick to follow. I made my dough on Wednesday and wanted to make them on that day, but was not able to, so I did them today, hence why the entry today is a little bit late.

Ingredients

  • 500g flour
  • 2 flattened teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 200g sugar
  • 1 package vanilla sugar, or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 250 g butterย 

Instructions

  • Melt the butter and let it cool down.
  • Preheat the oven to 175 celsius.
  • Mix flour and baking powder together.
  • Mix sugar, vanilla extract and butter together.
  • Slowly whisk in the flour until you have a smooth dough. You might need to use your hands after mixing in half of the flour to knead the dough.ย 
  • Let the dough sit in a colder room or in the fridge for 30 minutes up to an hour, but you can also leave the dough for a couple of days in the fridge or even freeze it.
  • Roll out the dough with some extra flour and cut out the cookies.
  • Bake the cookies for 10-13 minutes or until golden brown.

Feel free to vary the recipe, you can add some ground up nuts or decorate it after with chocolate. Do whatever you want!

I hope you enjoyed today’s entry and I wish you all a wonderful day!

XoXo, Jasmin.

  1. […] Take time out of your busy schedule even if it is only 30 minutes, but those 30 minutes will make a difference. I like to take this time to take care of my skin or listen to a podcast, but I usually do both. What I also like to do is baking, it is so soothing to me and always takes my mind of everything.
