πŸŽ„ Traditional Christmas Cookies Recipe - BLOGMAS DAY 11 πŸŽ„

"He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree".
- Roy L. Smith

Recently, I've been trying out a few more recipes for baking cookies, cakes, etc. and I've finally found my mum's recipe for the most traditional Christmas cookies, or also called PlΓ€tzchen
We used to bake these every year around the beginning of November and I absolutely loved making a mess in the kitchen, throwing flour and dough basically everywhere. Even the dog would be covered in flour!
I do really miss having my family around every day, especially now that Christmas is fast approaching, so I thought I would share this recipe with you guys and maybe you will get the chance to bake some cookies with your family!

For the cookie dough, you will need...
- 3 3/4 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup margarine, softened
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

When you've got all the ingredients ready you will have to...
1. Mix flour, baking powder and salt and set aside; cream together margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, then add the vanilla. Add the flour-baking powder mixture and put it in the fridge for 2 hours.
2. Preheat oven to 200°C, then roll out the dough and cut out shapes using cookie cutters.
3. Bake 6 to 8 minutes until edges are barely brown. Let cool before decorating.

Pretty easy, isn't it? But they taste so good! Let me know if you want to try these - I would love to know what you think about them! 

Do you have a "traditional" Christmas recipe? x
