Are you looking forward to Friday?? Let me then introduce you to my home-baked Vanilla Girlie Cookies! 😀
Recipe (makes 14 cookies)
- 275 g plain flour, sifted
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 100 g granulated sugar
- 75 g unsalted butter, diced
- 1 medium egg, beaten
- 2 tablespoons golden syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract with seeds
- 500 g fondant icing
- food colouring & sprinkles (if required)
Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C/338 degrees F/Gas Mark 3.
Place flour, baking powder and granulated sugar in a mixing bowl and then add butter and rub together with your finger tips, until the mixture resembles fine bread crumbs.
Make a hollow in the centre and pour in the beaten egg, golden syrup and vanilla extract. Mix together well, until you have a ball of dough. Place the dough in cling film and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Roll out the dough to 5mm thick and stamp out using a cookie cutter.
Place on a greased baking sheet 5cm apart with enough room to expand slightly.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, in the middle of the oven, until golden brown and firm. Remove from oven, allowing cookies to cool on a cooling rack.
For icing, roll out fondant thinly and cut out shape with same cookie cutter used for cookies.
Brush a thin coating of golden syrup on the baked cookie and gently place the fondant on top.
Happy Vanilla Girlie Cookie Baking Everyone!
