Christmas Wreath Cookies

Christmas Wreath Cookies

I decorated the crispy cookies, taking the taste and texture balance into consideration, and surprisingly they turned out delicious.

Ingredients: About 30 cookies

Unsalted butter
100 g
Granulated sugar
80 g

100 g
★Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon
★Almond powder
20 g

1. Bring butter to room temperature. Combine the ★ dry ingredients, and sift.
2. Cream butter with a whisk. Add granulated sugar in 2 batches, and mix until the mixture becomes white.
3. Add the egg into Step 2 little by little, and mix well.
4. Add sifted ★ dry ingredients in one go, and mix well with a spatula until the mixture is no longer floury. Knead until it becomes a little shiny.
5. Place a star shaped nozzle in an icing bag, and squeeze out a wreath about 4 cm in diameter. It looks beautiful when you squeeze the mixture by drawing 2 circles overlapping each other.
6. Sprinkle roasted hazelnuts, dried cranberries, or dragées as a decoration on a wreath if you like.
7. Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes at 170℃ (340℉).
8. If you wrap them, they will make great presents.
