Citrus Cut-Out Cookies

Citrus Flavoured Cookies on stick for Children's Day!! As the school will be closed on 30th Sept & 1st of Oct, therefore I've to prepared in advance so many days.

This is a recipe modified from the Wholemeal Cut-out Cookies I've done previously :) I've used a block of 250gm butter to make 45 cookies, amount just nice for the numbers of children. But who knows I've break a couple of the stars and in the end have to make another small batch to make up the numbers...clumsy hands :P

  • 250gm unsalted butter
  • 150gm sugar
  • 30gm egg yolk
  • 450gm plain flour
  • 3 orange zests
  • 6 tsp lemon juice
  1. Using a electric whisk, cream butter & sugar until creamy. Beat in zests & lemon juice.
  2. Beat in egg yolk till blended.
  3. Sift in flour and stir till combined. Lightly knead by hand form a ball of dough.
  4. Place dough on a sheet of baking parchment. Position 2 chopsticks on either side of the dough & roll out the dough using the thickness of the chopsticks as a guide. ( I omit this step, I just take some dough and use a rolling pin to roll out) Cut out shapes using cookie cutters. Place a ice-cream stick over the cookies and press down lightly. Pinch some cookie dough and press over to cover the stick. (see pic below). Turn over and sprinkle some sprinkles sugar over cookies as decoration.
  5. Baked in preheated oven at 180 deg cel for 12-15 min (depending on size of cookies) until golden brown.
  6. Remove tray from oven & allow to cool completely. The cookies will harden as they cool.

Hi Veronica, will these cookies be suitable for royal icing or fondant decor? I saw that you wrap them in clear plastic and tie. Will this make the cookies lose the crispiness? Thanks, A

Peng said...

yes it can be used for royal icing and fondant. More or less it will lose its crisp if in plastic wrap.
