How to wrap your cookies

No recipes today, just an idea about how to wrap your cookies as a gift. Buy some cheap plastic glasses (I got some martini glasses), put a nice napkin in and fill it with your delicious homemade biscuits.

Christmas trees


flour 300 gr
butter 200 gr
sugar 50 gr
vanilla sugar 2 spoons
1 egg yolk
1/2 envelop baking powder


Make a smooth dough mixing first the butter (soften it first) and both types of sugar. Edd the egg yolk and slowly add the flour. Roll the dough 5 mm thin and cut them with the cookie cutter. Half of them cut in the middle with a smaller cutter of the same shape.
Bake them in a preheated oven on 180°C for 10-15 minutes.
Let them cool and then spread the jam you prefer on the cookies and put the cookie with the hole on the top.
If you want, you can add some sugar ice on the top, but they work without it as well.
Make them as a gift or offer them to your guests.
