This cookie can be seen at mostly all houses during festive season. Takes some time pressing it out of the molds but its really delicious with a very mild sugar and melt in your mouth texture. Ingredients used are minimum. I used a Dahlia cookie mold but I suppose this can be pressed by any cookie cutter. Yet to try that. This cookie can be dressed by putting some cherries cut into small pieces or sugar sprinkles.
225gm butter, room temperature
110gm confectioner sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
120gm custard flour
170gm all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
cherries for ganishing
- Beat butter and sugar ( I used wooden spoon to mix the butter and sugar) Add egg yolk, salt and vanilla. Mix well.
- Sift in the all purpose flour, custard flour and cornstarch.
- Put in the cookie mold and press out onto a cookie sheet. ( Add more flour if dough appears to be very soft.) Top with small pieces of cut cherries.
- Bake at 325 degrees for about 15 minutes.
