Step 1: Ingredients & Tools
- Ingredients :
- 70 gr "Lion" Cereals
- 100gr Butter
- 60gr icing sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 small spoon of vanilla
- 100ml of milk (not show in the photo)
- 250gr of flour + some more for knead the mass later
- Weighing scales
- 3d tree printed model
Step 2: Drawing
My younger sibling drew a picture, that later I will base on the 3d printed model.
He drew a Christmas Tree .
Isn't it a wonderful piece of art?
Step 3: Sketch
The idea is that it measures 15mm of the deep.
Step 4: Desgin
I used Blender to design the cookie cutter, the border are more or less in 1mm width.
Step 5: Printing
I would let you here the stl files to download.
I used a Geeetech E180, and PLA filament to print it.
- I used the following parameter:
- 60m/s speed
- Infill 80%
- 0,2 quality
- No support
Step 6: Measure the Ingridients
Using the weighing scales.
Step 7: Cut the Butter
Just to make it easier to mix the butter with any other ingredient we cut it in smaller pieces, resting with a normal temperature.
Step 8: Mix the Butter and the Sugar
Step 9: Add the Egg and Mix
Step 10: Add the Flour and Mix
I strongly recommend to sieve the flour, in to order have a more fluffy cookies.
Step 11: Add the Spoon of Vanilla and Mix
Step 12: Lions Cereals
First grind the cereals and then added them to the dough and mix.
Step 13: WAIT!
Let the dough in the bowl, cover it, and leave it in the fridge for almost 1 hour.
Step 14: CANDIESSSSS
Meanwhile the mass is resting, we are going to crush candies.
First, we open the candies (of course you are not going to eat the plastic...), and crush
later I classified every candy by color to organize myself later.
Step 15: MILK!!!!!
You will see that after an hour the mass is very hard to manage, that is why we are going to spill the milk and mix.
Step 16: PREHEAT the Oven
Turn on the oven at 180º Centigrade, to make sure it is hot enough when you put the cookies later.
Step 17: Prepare the Table
Now it is time to knead the dough so first of all we spread some flour in the wherever we are going to put the mass, otherwise the dough will stick to the table.
Step 18: GIVE FORM TO THE COOKIES
After have extended the dough with a more or less 4-3mm or more thickness. Used the 3d printed model to give our cookies a form, I even used a hammer to put bigger pression.
In case you have some difficulties to get out the mold without breaking the cookies you can help yourself with a toothpick.
Step 19: MORE CANDIESSSS
It is time for candies!!!!!!
Fill the holes of the cookies with candies, make sure your cookies are stuck to the tray or paper.
Step 20: Bake
Bake the cookies in the oven at 180º (that we have preheat before) for about 11minutes.
After baking they do not forget to leave them rest out of the oven, at least 5 minutes.
Step 21: ENJOY!!!!!!
The cookies were DELICIOUS, they taste amazing, kind of a mix of butter cookies, LION and even milk.
I just hope you have enjoyed reading, the same I enjoyed making the cookies.
