QR Code Cookies

I once made a QR code from chocolate, but I wanted to try making one out of cookies.
This recipe will make a 25 x 25 sized QR code with 2 cm cookies for a total of 625 cookies.

Ingredients: To share at a party or large gathering

Plain flour
720 g
180 g
180 g
Egg yolk
180 ml
Vanilla extract
as needed
Powdered sugar
400-500 g
Water (for the icing)
as needed


1. Download a picture of the QR code you will be making. Color and design it using an image processing software.
2. Bring the butter to room temperature to soften.
3. Whip the butter with a whisk until pale.
4. Add the sugar and cream.
5. Gradually add in the egg yolk.
6. Add the flour and knead it all together.
7. Cover with plastic wrap and let it chill in the refrigerator.
8. Once the dough has hardened, divide it into 5 portions. Cover each portion with plastic wrap and roll it out with a rolling pin.
9. Use a ruler to cut out 2 cm squares.
10. Bake in a 180°C oven for 15 minutes.
11. Dissolve the powdered sugar in water to make the icing. (Use food coloring to color the icing.) Once the cookies have cooled, coat with the icing.
12. After spreading on the icing, let them dry for half to a whole day.
13. Arrange the cookies to match the QR diagram and you're done.
