Cookie Time!

Usually, I don't like baking cookies because it's very troublesome. But since it's almost Christmas, it's time for cookie swap! Not that I have anyone to swap my cookies with. I'm just in the mood for baking Christmas-related cookies :) Okay, my first cookie was the linzer cookie in my previous post. I used a recipe from Martha Stewart (here), but I substituted almond meal for hazelnut meal. My second cookie was candy cane cookie sticks, also from Martha Stewart (here). I mixed some matcha powder into half of the batch so I got two different flavors out of one batch. The edges of some of my cookies were browner than others', maybe because my oven temperature was not even throughout. Also, rolling the baked cookies into sticks were challenging because I probably spread the batter too thick.

My third cookie was "gingerbread" man. Well, it wasn't really gingerbread. It was actually chocolate orange cookie since my friends and I don't like the taste of gingerbread. Again, I used a basic sugar cookie recipe from Martha Stewart (here) and added 4 tablespoons of Dutch-processed cocoa powder and 1 teaspoon of natural orange extract to the dough. Then, I rolled and baked the cookie cutouts as directed. For the decoration, I used a royal icing recipe from the website (here) and I only needed about half batch to decorate one batch of cookies.

Alright, I hope you enjoy the pictures and can spend some time to bake your own Christmas cookies :) Happy holiday everyone!
