These Christmas biscuits / sablés are as easy to bake than to eat! And they are also fun to make alone or with children and friends! I hope that they will help creating a warm and Christmasy atmosphere inside your home!
Preparation time: 1 hour 30 minutes(10 minutes for the dough, then 1 hour rest in the fridge, and 20 minutes for making the biscuits)
Cooking time: 10 minutes in the oven thermostat 180 degrees
Difficulty: Very easy
Ingredients (for around 30 biscuits):
- 500 gr of flour
- 180 of sugar
- 2 eggs
- 250 gr of butter
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla sugar
Leave the butter out of the fridge for at least 30 minutes (better 1 hour) so it softens. If you don’t have time, just put it for 2 minutes into the microwave.
Mix all the ingredients together: flour, eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla sugar. Start with a spoon, and then mix the dough with your fingers to make it homogeneous. It needs to be a bite sticky not too much! If it sticks too much on your fingers, add a bite of flour.
Put the dough in e fridge for one hour so it will become more compact and easy to spread.
Put some flour on the table and spread the dough. It should be around 3-4 millimeters high. Take some cookie cutters and design some Christmas figures on the dough. Christmas trees, reindeers, snowmen, leave your imagination decide!
Put the little figures in a pan go into oven and cook for around 10 minutes thermostat 180 degrees (when the figures have a goldy color, they are ready!). Enjoy and have a Merry Christmas!!
Tip: you can decorate your Christmas sables with jam, icing or chocolate…. And don’t hesitate to change your cookie cutters to serve them also outside the Christmas period, they are too good to be eaten only once a year!!
