We Baked It Ourselves With LOVE: Christmas baking


you need:
600g flour
250g butter
250g powdered sugar
2 eggs
1 vanilla bean / 
1 package vanilla sugar

take a workplate, mix up butter and sugar, knead it. 
then add the eggs, the flour and finally the vanilla and juice from a half lemon.
 knead it until it's a smooth dough.
pack it with plastic wrap and put it in the fridge. for about 1 hour.

 If you are not able to coast the dough after an hour, 
then put it back in the fridge until its ready.
when the dough is rolled out then, take your biscuit cutter and here we go!

i found this special cutter in a tiny little shop here in town. 
but i'm sure you can order it online.
It's amazing, you have the cutter and these small letters 
which you can plugg in however you want.
so i made some "STYLEMINGLE", some "ANDI&STEFFI" or some "HEARTS" biscuits.
very personal! and people wondering how you did that! and it tastes great!
great great great gift!

When you finished with cutting all your biscuits put them all on baking paper and 
put them in the oven for about 30 min. 
If you want have your biscuits glossy you can put some mixed raw egg on it.
sounds ugly but it looks nice afterwards.
Keep an eye on the dough all the time because the time depends on how thin you rolled it!

now let your selfmade biscuits cool down and think about how you want to give them away!
you can put them in a paperbag write the name on it and close it with a colourful bow.

Or you put them in a nice biscuit box and just bring it to the next christmasparty!
however you're doing it, people will be impressed and will love your present.
