Easy Christmas baking ideas

Christmas is knocking at the door and we are all searching for easy baking ideas, so we can impress our guests, but also have fun.  Grab your friend or mother and get in the mood to start baking for Christmas, while being creative in the kitchen. Nothing can replace the scent of something baked in the oven, meanwhile you are having great moments with your dear ones. I have 2 recipes for you, an easy one and one more advanced done at John Baker ltd.
This first one involves a lot of flour so the cookies can keep their shape.

You can use Christmas shaped cookie cutters to cut out shapes from the dough or DIY by drawing your desired shape on a paper.
Mix the following ingredients:

♥ 150 gr melted butter
♥ 150 gr powdersugar
♥ 3 eggs ( 2 eggs for dough, one for decorating)
♥ 2 tablespoons honey
♥ 2 teaspoons baking soda
♥ For an intense flavor you can add winter mix ( e.g the one for mulled wine) or marzipan

♥Decorating sugar, for topping, optional

♥ Sprinkles, for topping, optional

PS: first whisk white eggs with sugar, then add the yolk and the rest of them.
When the mixture is homogeneous, add 500 g flour. Before decorating, you need to put a bit of yolk on each cookie, so that the decoration doesn’t fall.

Position oven racks in the top and bottom thirds of the oven and preheat to 175°C. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.Bake until the cookies become golden brown on the bottom,  about 10 to 12 minutes and then let them cool down.

I’d love to hear in the comments: what cookie recipe do you enjoy the most during Christmas season??

Essie Polish is one of the best nail polishes for my long, natural nails, which comes in amazing vibrant colors.  Check my Instagram Stories every day, so you can discover what’s hidden behind the other doors.
