Shortbread Cookies with Icing

by Editorial Staff

Delicious and fragrant shortbread cookies can be painted with egg white icing with powdered sugar and decorated as a decoration for a Christmas tree or a New Year’s gift.

Ingredients

For the dough:

  • Butter (room temperature) – 100 g
  • Yolk – 1 pc.
  • Sugar – 50 g
  • Flour – 175 g
  • Baking powder – 0.5 teaspoon
  • Vanillin – 1 pinch
  • Salt – 1 pinch
    *

For glaze:

  • Egg white – 15 g (0.5 pcs.)
  • Powdered sugar – 100 g
  • Lemon juice – 1 teaspoon

Instructions

  1. We carefully process the egg – wash it and keep it for 10 minutes in a strong soda solution (a tablespoon of soda in a glass of water). This is necessary because raw protein is used for the glaze. Separate the egg yolk from the white. The oil should be at room temperature – we take it out of the refrigerator in advance. Sift flour (a little more than a glass with a capacity of 250 ml) with baking powder and mix with salt.
  2. Beat butter with sugar and vanilla. Add the yolk and beat again. While kneading the egg-butter mass, gradually add flour with baking powder and salt to it. We knead the dough. We put it in a bag and send it to the refrigerator for 2 hours.
  3. Roll out the dough into a layer 0.5 cm thick and cut out the cookies using curly cuttings. The upper lip of the cookie can be pierced (so that you can hang the finished cookie like a Christmas tree decoration. I did not do that).
  4. Carefully transfer the figures to a baking sheet covered with parchment. We bake cookies at 180 degrees for 10-15 minutes. We take the cookies out of the oven and let them cool.
  5. Preparing the icing for the cookies. You need only 15 grams of egg white – that’s about a tablespoon. Mix the powdered sugar with the egg white. Add lemon juice and mix the glaze again very thoroughly.  Transfer the icing to a pastry bag.
  6. With the help of glaze, we apply patterns to the cookies. You can connect your children to this process.
