Christmas Tree Cookies


Granny Ursula cookie rollerChristmas Cookies

Once a year I use my grandmother’s cookie roller to make Christmas Cookies.  The children help with cutting out the shapes and love eating them.  I make these before Christmas day as there is always so much other food on offer on Christmas day.  Here is the recipe.  Mine look a bit scrappy this year but no one seems to mind.


125 g butter or margarine

125 ml castor sugar (105 g )

5 ml vanilla essence

1 egg

450 ml Cake flour

60 ml cornflour (30 g)

5 ml baking powder

3 ml salt

  1. Beat butter and sugar together, add essence and egg, beat until light and fluffy
  2. Sift dry ingredients, add to creamed mixture and knead to form a stiff dough
  3. Roll out to a thickness of 4 mm and, using a Christmas biscuit cutter, cut into shapes.  If hanging them on the Christmas tree, make a hole in the dough.
  4. Place on a greased baking tray and bake at 180 deg C for 10 – 15 mins or until light brown on the edges
  5. Ice with glace icing.
