Total Preparation Time: 1.25 hours
200g caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
275g all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
Star Cookie Cutters
200g icing sugar, sieved
edible gold and silver balls
Beat the butter and sugar until creamy. Stir in the egg until it’s combined.
Sift the flour, cinnamon powder, baking powder and then add the vanilla extract. Make a soft dough. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180˚C. Sprinkle some flour on the surface, roll out the dough to about 5mm thick.
Cut out shapes with cookie cutters and place them on a lightly greased baking tray, leaving a little space between each.
Bake for 12 minutes until golden.
Cool on a wire rack to decorate as desired.
Mix the icing sugar with a few drops of cold water to make a thick, but still runny icing.
Spread it over the cooled cookies, decorate with edible balls when dry.
Store in an airtight container.
