Simple Valentines Rose Cookies

Simple Valentines Rose Cookies

Cute rose shapes made from a squeeze tube. Light and crispy cookies, just like a certain brand's butter cookies.

Ingredients: makes enough for 2 baking pans

*White flour
120 g
*Cocoa (unsweetened)
10 to 15 g
*Skim milk (if you have)
1 tablespoon
Butter
100 g
Milk
3 tablespoons
Sugar
50g

Steps

1. Let the butter soften at room temperature. Add the sugar and mix well so it turns into a creamy texture. Mix until the sugar becomes smooth.
2. Once the butter is softened add the milk a little bit at a time and mix. You should be aiming for the consistency of mayonnaise. If it's too stiff immerse in a hot water bath.
3. Sift the * ingredients, and then sift into the bowl.
4. Use a rubber spatula and mix in a cutting motion. It'll be crumbly at first but eventually it'll become a stiff cream.
5. Place in a pastry bag with a 5 mm tip. If you put the bag in a large cup it'll be easier to add the dough.
6. Make the cookie shape by squeezing from the middle and making a circular motion. For the outside try to layer it, like a flower petal.
7. Cook in your preheated oven at 170°C for 15 to 20 minutes.
8. Once finished cool and transfer to your serving plate.
9. A close-up of the rose. So lovely. Don't press it, don't get impatient, and let the dough fall into place.
10. Heart shapes are also easy. This one's a bit bold! I tried to make it small, but that was quite the effort.
11. When squeezing out do it in a massaging motion. It'll be a bit stiff at first, but it'll soften from the warmth of your hand.
