Christmas Cookies-Sweet Punch


Luks like,I am not blogging regularly,but hey its not true,i am doing a post a week...And the blog marathon is coming up soon from 16th...I will join them this time too,even though I am bundled with household chores and cares...The Christmas tree,stars and all the glittering hangings r out and has been set by the little ones with the guidance...The mixed fruits has been soaked in wine and rum..I will share the traditional recipes of christmas for this season,and its too early to discuss on it...So,the blog marathon will be the Christmas Special..
Made these cookies on last friday,and hansika was so enthusiastic to help me to roll and make shapes...I made the dough and refrigerated in tupperware container.She comes back from school,and spent some time in making cookies..She mix up the dough and I made 4 batches of this recipe...And Needless to say,Cookies r more easy to make and can be stored for a month.

Definitely the pre-preparations for Christmas ,will help you to celebrate and enjoy the season... 

Ingredients
1 cup Butter at room temperature
1 cup Sugar
1 Egg(Optional)
1/8 teaspoon Salt
3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Strawberry Red food coloring
Green food coloring

Method


Cream butter and sugar.  Add egg and  Mix well.  Combine flour, salt and baking soda, mix well, and add to butter mixture.  Mix until well combined.


Divide dough into 3 parts.  Add red food coloring to the first part and blend well.  Add green food coloring to the second part and blend it well.  Use enough coloring to make vibrant colors because they fade during baking.  Leave the third part plain.


Refrigerate the dough,until u use it...Place the 3 colors of dough in Butter/Plastic paper and use cookie cutter to make fine shapes...


Bake them 166*C for exactly 8 minutes... 


Once the cookies are cooled,Store them in air tight container...
The Colorful Cookies doesnt need an icing or any decorations...


Tips
1.Make similar thickness,so while baking,all the cookies are baked evenly
2.To check,if it is baked,the cookies will be slight brown in the bottom
3.If you are baking in huge amount and repeatedly , reduce the time of baking

Enjoy :)
