In between too many projects waiting to be finished, and tons of housework to be done, I cooked some cookies for the craft party I was going to attend today. The recipe is very simple.
All you need is
- 125 gr fine sugar
- 250 gr butter
- 520 gr all purpose flour
- 1 egg
First you beat sugar and butter until it is creamy. Then you add the egg, and the flour. Don't add all the flour at once, as the amount might be too much depending on the other ingredients. Knead until you have a stiff enough to be rolled cookie dough. It wasn't mentioned in the original recipe, but I chilled the dough for about 30 minutes in the fridge. Then, flatten it 1/2 cm thick and cut into shapes. I got my lovely cutters from Vienna a few years back and used them for the first time yesterday. Shame on me for not putting them into use for so long. Aren't they adorable?
For those who can read Turkish, the original recipe is here.
