(All) Packed!



Cookies: I've baked dozens of batches - lost count of how many I did, how they look like, what shape, what flavour, what smell... I'm tired! Cookies are now in little jars, ready to meet they final owners, bringing Christmas' spirit and (hopefully!) joy to those who taste them.
This is also my last entry for Eat Christmas Cookies at Food Blogga. Susan did a great work putting together an awesome group of recipes, with great reviews and lovely photos - some of the most amazing Christmas Cookies coming from allover the world! Go check them out at Susan's place!



Spicy Angel Cookies

Makes 3 Dozens

125 g butter, cubed
125 g Light Muscovado Sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
275 g Wholemeal Plain Flour
2 Tbsp cocoa
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp allspice
1 large egg and 1 yolk
75 grs white chocolate (for topping)

Mix butter with Light Muscovado Sugar and vanilla extract until smooth. Add the flour, cocoa, ginger, allspice, whole egg and yolk. Stir again until the mixture comes together to form a ball. Turn onto a large sheet of baking parchment and knead the dough lightly for a couple of minutes. Wrap in the parchment paper and chill for 30 minutes. Using caster sugar to dust, roll out the cookie dough until it’s 2.5 mm thick. Cut angel shaped cookies. Bake at 180ºC for 10-12 minutes until cookies are firm and golden. Melt white chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water and use to decorate. Cool on parchment paper.
