Christmas Cookies Ideas

I already started making my cookies list that I want to prepare for Christmas so if you haven’t decided yet, here are some ideas.

I will make these simple vanilla cupcakes, maybe even a batch with cocoa and surely the famous Chocolate Crackle Cookies I told you about.

So even if you are not such a great baker, you should try these two recipes because they are really really simple and the chances of screwing up are very low.

Vanilla Cupcake Recipe

1 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda and not baking powder
a pinch of salt
2 large eggs, at room temperature
2/3 cup sugar( brown)
1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, melted
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk

Whick the flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl. In another bowl use the mixer and whip up the eggs and sugar until foamy. Gradually add the butter and vanilla. The add the flour in 2-3 rounds until you get a thick cream.

Line up a tray with cupcake papper and add the batter in(half full)

Bake until the toothpick comes out dry.


Whipped Cream Frosting with almond extract

Vegetable whipped cream

2 spoons of confectioners sugar and almond extract

Whip it up with a mixer and add the  almond extract.

Add fondant snowflakes and some edible silver beads.

I also made some white chocolate meringue cream Santa hat cupcakes. So you can use the frosting recipe from here.
