Christmas recipe: Christmas Cookies. These easy Christmas cookies are perfect to make with your kids during the Christmas break.
Last Saturday there was a Christmas Market in the hometown of Jens. I didn’t feel like going, but a good friend of mine also went so we had some time to catch up. First it was really cold, because it was outside. There were not many stands but mostly music, fire pits, beer and talking. When the big fire pit got a bit warm we also got it a bit more warm and enjoyed the evening. But the boys sadly didn’t want to go home when we did so we end in the cafe. And when you are the driver and everybody is slowly getting drunk you just feel like going home. I also notice that I am not used to going out anymore, yes I am getting old. That music is so loud that you can’t even hear the other person and are so close to everybody that you can’t move either. All by all we did have a fun night, but it also meant a lazy Sunday. Jens had no hangover, surprisingly enough so we started with a nice long walk with the dog on the beach. The dog also slept the rest off the day.
The rest of the day was relaxed at home to enjoy the nice evening we had. And for me a relaxed day usually also means that I get into the kitchen as well. Just like I did Sunday when I made these Christmas Cookies. They are really easy to make and super delicious as well.
Preparation time: 5 minutes + 30 minutes waiting time
Baking time: 15 minutes
Amount: 9-12 cookies
- Cookie Cutter
- Rolling Pin
- Baking papeer
- Baking tray
- 75 grams coconut oil
- 200 grams spelt flour
- 5 grams baking soda
- 1 egg
- 75 grams honey
How to make it?
Put the coconut oil in a small pan on low heat fire. Make sure it melts slowly. When the coconut oil has melted you can set the pan aside.
While the coconut oil melts you can put the spelt flour in a mixing bowl with the baking soda, egg and the honey. Add the coconut oil when it is melted.
Mix the ingredients with a spatula. When all ingredients are mixed into a dough, you can make a ball of it. Lay in the fridge for 30 minutes to rest. Afterwards you can get it out of the fridge and preheat the oven on 175 Celsius (347 Fahrenheit). Lay the dough between 2 pieces of baking paper. That is the easiest way to properly roll the dough. Roll the dough into a flat surface of approximately 1 centimeter in height.
You can now cut the cookies. I didn’t use a cookie cutter, but a circle with a pattern in it. I pushed it in the dough and it gave these cute Christmas tree in my cookies.
Bake the cookies for 15 minutes in a preheated oven. Pay attention that the baking time may differ per oven.
You can now enjoy these delicious, organic cookies.
