Christmas Kisses

Becky wanted to do some Christmas baking this morning so this was the recipe I gave her to try.It was a great recipe for her to make by herself. She enjoyed the measuring and especially squeezing  the dough in her hands and  rolling it into little marblesized balls. The  butter icing is not  runny .She  could make it into little flat discs, sit one on each cookie and put the second one on top.

We made it withough the vanilla paste but I have added it to the recipe as if I made it again I think this would make them even better.

These cookies should be baked only until they are very faintly golden, and not brown. Take a look after 8 minutes. In our oven they took 12. Every oven is different.

These have already been eaten  but they are so easy to make that she can make more closer to Christmas.


180 gm of softened butter
1/4 cup of icing sugar
1 1/4 cups of flour
1/4 cup of custard powder
1/4-1/2 teaspoon of Heilala vanilla paste (optional)

Butter Filling

1 1/4 cups of icing sugar
75 gm of softened butter

Leave the butter out of the fridge to soften before starting this recipe
Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl
Add the butter and mix into a dough
Roll into teaspoon sized balls
Place on a tray lined with baking paper
Press lightly down on each with a thumb, or flatten slightly with a fork
In the meantime make the butter icing by mixing the butter into the sifted icing sugar.
Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes . Do not let them brown
Let cool.
Then sandwich together with the butter icing.
