Star sugar cookies half dipped in white chocolate.
It may only be November but I have spent most of the month doing Christmas baking! I have been making all sorts of recipes (expect a lot of Christmas bakes over the following weeks!) trying to decide what to bake to gift to people. Finally I have decided upon these star cookies as they are simple to make and can be done in stages.
I have so many cookies to make that I am being super organized this year. I have already made and cut out one batch of 35 star cookie dough for freezing ready for when they need baking. That way all I have to do on the day is bake, dip, sprinkle and box the cookies, some with white chocolate and some milk chocolate and add a few Christmas sprinkles.
If you are doing some Christmas baking this year, why not check out my Christmas Baking Contest
Claremanson's Christmas ContestTheme: General Christmas Baking
From holding a recent poll, it seems the majority of you are most interested in baking traditional food for your country/family or food you usually bake over Christmas rather than a set recipe. Therefore I have decided that as long as it is relevant to Christmas in some way, shape or form in recipe, flavour or presentation it will be considered as an entry.
Rules and requirements:
You must include Christmas into your baking, decorating or surroundings in some shape or form else your entry will not be included.
If what you you usually make isn't very Christmasy looking or tasting then why not try to add some more Christmas into your food by adding Christmas sprinkles onto candy and cupcakes, flavours such as cinnamon or cranberry, themed cupcake cases, festive shaped cookies etc.
You entry must be new for Christmas 2013.
It must be homemade, not shop bought.

Sugar Cookie Recipe
300g plain flour
1. Mix the butter and sugar together.
2. Mix in the egg.
3. Mix in the flour (plus any other added extra like vanilla, colouring, chocolate chips etc) until you form a dough.
4. On a floured surface roll and cut your dough. At this stage you can freeze your dough for up to a month on single layers between wax paper in a container.
5. Chill your dough for 20 minutes to firm it up (this helps the cookies keep it's shape while baking)
6. Bake in a 180oC pre-heated oven for 15 minutes or so depending on the size and thickness of your cookies until they start to slightly brown.
7. Cool on a rack then decorate as desired.
8. Store in a sealed container for around 2 days.
