You are still looking for a special gift for your loved ones? How about some homemade Christmas cookies, beautifully packaged in a paper bag and decorated with a few twigs. That's all it takes. And our recipe is not complicated at all. The happy maple Riche syrup is our allrounder and provides a wonderful maple note but if you like caramel you can of course use our Goût Robuste too. Last but not least spices: we need ginger and cinnamon to make those cookies really Christmassy.
2 tsp baking powder
4 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp ground cinnamon
250g butter, diced
4 tbsp happy maple Goût Riche
1 large egg, beaten
optinal: chocolate chips or raisins, chopped
Sift the flour, baking powder ginger and cinnamon into a mixing bowl. Season with a pinch of salt.
Add the sugar and butter and rub in with your fingers until the butter is fully absorbed and the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
Mix the maple syrup and egg together and then stir into the mixture with a wooden spoon. Bring together with your hands and knead very gently to form a smooth, stiff dough. Shape into a ball and refrigerate for half an hour.
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Take the dough out of the fridge and cut into quarters, allowing you to work with each quarter at a time. Keep the remaining dough in the fridge until you are ready to roll it.
Roll out the dough to a thickness of approximately 0,5cm. Cut into festive shapes and place the biscuits onto baking sheets lined with parchement paper.
Bake the cookies for 12-14 minutes until golden brown. Let them cool for about 10 minutes.
