Is your Christmas tree really finished?
Christmas spice cookies are the ideal recipe to involve children in making Christmas adornments that are a treat for the eyes!
3 oz apples
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tbsp cinnamon powder
grated peel of 1 lemon
3/4 cup brown sugar
3 1/2 tbsp butter, melted
2 tsp baking powder
5 tbsp salt
4 1/4 cup milk
Gather all of the ingredients and mix them in a bowl. Use a food processer to blend until the dough forms small clumps, adding a little more milk if necessary.
Roll out the dough with a rolling pin until it is about 1/8 inch thick and… let your imagination run wild!
You can create a wide variety of shapes – including gifts, Christmas balls and Santa Clauses – that can be turned into sweet decorations by making a hole to add a colored ribbon.
Place them on a baking sheet covered with baking paper and bake at 350° F for approximately 13 minutes.
After the cookies have cooled, you can decorate them with royal icing.
