Ingredients of Vickys Spiced 'n' Iced Christmas Cookies

  1. It’s 225 grams of gluten-free/plain flour.
  2. Prepare 1/2 tsp of baking soda/bicarb of soda.
  3. It’s 75 grams of soft brown sugar.
  4. You need 60 grams of dairy-free spread such as Vitalite sunflower spread or Stork margarine foil wrapped block.
  5. Prepare 1 tbsp of treacle/molasses.
  6. Prepare 2 tsp of Mixed Spice, recipe link below.
  7. It’s 1 tsp of cinnamon.
  8. You need 1 tsp of ginger.
  9. You need 1/2 tsp of ground cardamom.
  10. Prepare 2-4 tablespoons of milk or dairy-free alternative.

For the cookies: Mix the shortening and sugar with a mixer. Then add the milk, vanilla, egg, and blend. Gradually add the rest of the dry ingredients until the mix forms a soft dough (when I double the recipe, I cut the flour down a little bit so it doesn't get too dry). Make your gingerbread man cookie cutter do double-duty this season.

Vickys Spiced 'n' Iced Christmas Cookies step by step

  1. Cream the butter and sugar in a mixer. Add the spices and treacle and beat again, then add 2 tbsp of the milk
  2. Add the flour and baking soda then using your hands, bring the dough together into a ball. Add more milk a teaspoon at a time if you need it but don't let the dough become too sticky. Wrap it in clingfilm and refrigerate for half an hour.
  3. Lightly flour your surface and roll out the dough 3mm thick. Cut out your shapes and put them on to two lightly greased baking-sheets. Gather the remaining dough into a ball, roll out again and keep cutting until it has all been used.
  4. Put the baking sheets in the fridge for about 45 minutes, meanwhile preheat the oven to gas 4 / 180C / 350°F. Bake for 12 minutes. They should start to feel hard round the edges as they cool and eventually become really hard. They need to have a nice 'snap'.
  5. Decorate with icing sugar mixed with a little water or brush with marmalade as I did and cut out the same shapes from ready roll icing and stick on top of the cookies. Be creative with piping icing and embellishments.

Use the cookie cutter as normal, bake cookies and allow to cool. To decorate, pipe antlers with royal icing along the arms and legs, create eyes with mini chocolate chips and nose with a Red Hots candy. Let it snow with these gorgeous hand-decorated frosted vanilla sugar cookies that come in fun and festive shapes like Christmas trees, poinsettia flowers, and snowmen. Even if the weather outside is frightful, these cookies will taste delightful. See more ideas about Sugar cookies decorated, Cookie decorating, Iced cookies.
