200g softened unsalted butter
100g granulated sugar
250g cake flour
50g almond flour
1 tbsp vanilla extract
Some red food coloring
Melted white chocolate
Notes: By cake flour, I mean low protein flour, which normally contains 7-9% protein (Mine is around 8%). Not self-rising flour.
- Soften the butter until you can easily cut it into slices. Do not soften the butter too much. Add in sugar and vanilla extract and mix well. Gradually add in milk while using a hand mixer to beat until light and fluffy. Add in cake flour, almond flour, and salt. Mix until well combined. Transfer half of the cookie dough into a clean bowl. Add in some red food coloring and mix well. Transfer into a piping bag. Tip the piping bag with a closed star piping tip. Transfer another half of cookie dough into a piping bag. Tip the piping bag with a closed star piping tip.
- Line the baking tray with parchment paper or baking mat. Preheat the oven to 320℉(160℃).
- Draw cute bear cookies and Christmas hat cookies with the cookie dough. Send into the oven to bake for 20 minutes. Let cool, decorate the cookies with melted white chocolate and melted chocolate.
