Then this is the perfect instructable for you!!!
I made this instructable because I love baking cookies. I got a book that is called "cookie". I had a look at that and then I saw this "hand cookie", and I thought if I decorate that nicely than I can make a instructable with that.
The book is in dutch named "Koekje", written by Cees Holtkamp. His YouTube (Foodtube haha) channel is here.
Step 1: Ingredients
- 100 gram withe basterd sugar
- 150 gram soft (but not melted) butter
- grated citron skin from half of one citron
- 250 gram self raising flour
- 50 gram red sugared peanuts (not necessary if you don't like them)
- marsipan in white green and red
- pink frosting
- a empty working spot
- a rolling pin
- and a good mood
In my "cookie" book it's a bit different ingredients but this is more easy.
Step 2: Baking the cookie
First impaste the citron, sugar and butter, than bit by bit you impaste the flour in with it.
Let it rest for 30 to 60 min. in the fridge.
Cut your hand out of the dough.
Then crush the peanuts like on the picture, and sprinkle it over the hands.
Then 20 min. in a preheated oven on 170 degrees Celsius / 340 deg F.
Don't worry if they are not really hard, that is because the self raising flour !!!! dont let them get that black as my darkest one, the lightest is just right :)
Step 3: Last but not least, the decorating!!!!!!
