People look forward to Christmas all year round; it’s a time to give and receive gifts, spend time with family and loved ones, and best of all, eat tons of delicious festive treats!
From mince pies to roast turkey, there’s no shortage of tasty foods furnishing the dinner table during the Christmas holidays. With this quick and simple guide, you and the kids can bake some fresh car-shaped Christmas Cookies to add to the Christmas offerings!
What YULE Need… (You can keep that one!)
Okay, before we start we’ll need to know what ingredients we need. Our recipe is a great base for making Christmas cookies but feel free to add your own festive extras in to the mix such as raisins, cinnamon or chocolate chips.
These cookies are incredibly easy to prepare, quick to cook in the oven and can create a great opportunity to get young ones involved with decorative icing when Christmas comes around!
Ingredients (Makes around 30 Cookies)
- 250g butter, softened
- 140g caster sugar
- 1 egg yolk
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 300g plain flour
- Sugar cookie icing (use various colours for added effect!)
First, take a large mixing bowl and add 250g of softened butter. Be sure to take the butter out of the fridge and leave at room temperature a good while before you need it, allowing it adequate time to soften. Next add in the 140g of caster sugar and give it a good mix with a wooden spoon. Once mixed, add 1 egg yolk and 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, mixing again to combine.
Sift 300g of plain flour and stir in until the mixture is well combined; if you don’t mind getting your hands dirty you can get stuck in to give everything a good mix and press the dough together.
So there we have our recipe for crunchy Christmas car cookies! Have a fantastic Christmas on behalf of the whole team at We Buy Any Car!
