Christmas cookies recipe

The children wanted to do some baking this weekend, and with it *almost* being December, what better thing to make than Christmas cookies?

  • 175g butter
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 275g plain flour
  • Writing icing to decorate


  • Cut the butter into small pieces, then add to a bowl with the flour and sugar
  • Rub the butter between your fingers to make tiny crumbs
  • Squeeze the crumbs together to make a dough
  • Knead lightly, then place between 2 sheets of baking powder and roll out thinly
  • Peel off the top piece of paper and cut out shapes – we used Christmas cutters but you can use whatever you like!
  • Place on a baking tray, and bake for 10 minutes at 180 degrees.
  • Once cooled – decorate to your heart’s desire!
A really simple recipe that is great for little hands. Why not give it a try?

    Nom nom. I don’t know how many would last long enough in our house to reach the icing stage!

      I have to admit that a few didn’t make it to the icing stage…
