starcookiesThese were a fantastic cookie to make. The dough I found to be very stable when using the shape cutter. Even after baking, the cookies stayed in the star shape and didn’t come out misshapen. The cookies were lovely and soft and a great all-rounder cookie recipe. I am going to use this recipe for our Christmas cookies. I look forward to trying out all the different Christmas cookie cutter shapes.starcookies1Happy baking!wordpresssignature

    These sound super Simone! Thank-you. What’s more that aren’t too intimidating for an intermediate baker like myself! Perfect. And egg free for school and kinder Christmas favours. Like! Could you help me out with an icing recipe. I’m after a nice white icing that sets hard. I’m aiming for a trad sort of look with hard white icing and silver balls for decoration (thinking star and Christmas tree shaped cookies). I’ll pop back in and let you know how I go! Wish me luck. xx
