Picture of Deliciously delicious Christmas cookies
I know everyone likes some delicious,  sweet, tasty foods like cake, cookies or cupcakes, that's why I made these Turkish cookies called " un kurabiye" , which means flour cookies, and they turned out REALLY delicious so I came here and shared it with the world, but I will not only teach you how to make Turkish cookies, but also to make a box from scratch, for the people who don't know and decorate it with a teqnuique I learnt when I was in kindergarten. Let's start!

To make our Turkish cookies we'll need the following:

250 grams melted margarine

A small coffee cup of icing sugar

4-5 pieces of, how should I say, crushed gum mastic

As much flour as it can take, but don't make the dough to dry or it will brake to pieces when you use the cookie cutter/s

Cookie cutters (Almost forgot!)

For the icing you'll need the following ingredients:

Some icing sugar (Duh!)

A tiny bit of water

Food coloring


To make and decorate the box you'll need:

A piece of carton

A pencil

A pair of scissors or a knife



Colorful tissue paper

White glue

A brush

A bowl

If you got everything let's move on!

Step 2: Making our dough

Its really simple, just mix everything together and, voila! Just be careful not to add too much flour, as I said earlier.Now pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Then we roll out our dough, no need for additional flour because the dough shouldn't be sticky enough to stick to a surface. Then you can go ahead and cut out some cool shapes. Now you can put them in an oven tray to cook. You can put them really close to each other because they do not contain any baking powder. Now bake your cookies for 25-30 minutes. You get about 22 cookies out of this recipe.
this recipe sounds great! and sounds delicious...
