I hope this looks like a Christmas wreath to you. Today is the 7th of January... Is it too late for Christmas? Or too early for next Christmas?? If you can still remember this recipe next Christmas, give it a try.
Ingredients: If you make small sized wreaths, you can make a lot.
Sift cake flour and spinach powder together. Leave the unsalted butter at room temperature. Preheat the oven to 320F/160C.
Place the softened butter in a bowl and add powdered sugar and salt. Mix together until it has a creamy consistency.
Pour heavy cream into the Step 2 mixture in 2-3 batches. Combine well each time.
Once incorporated, add the sifted flours and fold. When the flour has disappeared and combined evenly, it is done.
Attach a nozzle to a squeeze bag.
Squeeze until you have created your desired cookie sizes and scatter dragées on top.
Bake in the preheated 320F/160C oven for 30 minutes. Please check and adjust the oven temperature and baking time as required.
Story Behind this Recipe
As soon as Halloween finished, I was thinking about Christmas. I wanted to make a cute and fun cookie which was easier to make than the ones I usually make, and I came up with this.
Although it is basic tip for cookies, be careful not to knead after adding flour. If you don't like spinach or the colour is too green for you, adjust the spinach or sugar. You can substitute matcha powder for spinach powder. (But I can't drink matcha) Or you can also use green vegetable powder. (But be careful because over baking turns the colour brown!) Sprinkling a lot of dragees on the top makes the cookies look gorgeous.
