Intro: Star Cookies :P
These cookies are simple and delicious.. perfect for children, with coffee, milk or eaten alone
Step 1: Ingredients
200gr of butter
1/2 cups of powdered sugar
1/2 cup of maizena (indian corn flour)
2 cups of flour
chabacano/ peach jam
Step 2: Make the Dough and Refrigerate
Cream the butter, add the powdered sugar, after the flours. Add milk so the dough is manageable.
Refrigerate from 1 hour to 2 days... not more, but it needs to have at least one hour in the fridge, better if two.
Step 3: Make the Stars!
Put some flour in a table so the dough doesn't get sticked to it. Also put some flour into the rolling pin.
Roll the dough very thin... like less than a half centimeter...
cut the stars and place them in a tray. With your finger or a spoon, make a little cavity in the center... add some jam there (few).
Step 4: Bake
Bake at 180°C (that's 360°F) for 15 minutes aproximately... or until they gold in the borders.
Take them out of the oven... let them cold. I like to sprinkle some powdered sugar over them but they are good also without it
and finally.... BE CREATIVE! :D you can make the shape you want.
