Today I wanted to share with you a recipe for my absolute favourite and failsafe cookies! I have been making these for years now. These are crispy and crunchy cookies rather than chewy. They can be flavoured however you want i.e. adding vanilla/almond extract, cocoa powder or spices. They hold their shape when cut and look good whether iced or not. My favourite is spiced and this time I have given them and Autumn & Halloween twist using some beautifully intricate cutters from Bakerology and once cooled I brushed some melted butter on some parts and sprinkling cinnamon sugar over the top for an extra sugar crunch - it’s delicious so I recommend giving that part a go! 

So onto the recipe. 

Cookies:
100g Butter
100g Caster Sugar
1 Egg Yolk (beaten with 2 teaspoons of water)
200g Plain Flour (plus extra for rolling out)
2 teaspoons of Pumpkin Spice
Cookie Cutters

To Decorate:
Butter (melted)
Brown sugar
Cinnamon

  • In a medium bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until light and creamy. Best in the egg yolk, pumpkin spice and flour. Stir until it forms a dough, then knead until smooth. Wrap in cling film and chill for 30 mins.
  • Preheat the oven to 180C, fan 160C, Gas 4.
  • Roll out the chilled dough on a floured surface to a thickness of 0.5cm. Stamp out shapes with your cookie cutters (if you’re using the bakerology ones I recommend dipping them in some flour first for an easier release as the details are so intricate).
  • Bake on a non-stick baking tray for about 10-12 minutes until browned. Leave to cool.
  • Mix some brown sugar with a little cinnamon in a bowl. Melt some butter and using a pastry brush, brush the butter onto the areas you want to decorate. Then use a spoon to sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over the cookies (I recommend doing this over the bowl so you can tip off the excess).

Obviously you’re free to decorate them however you wish. You can leave them plain, dip them in melted chocolate, pipe some pretty icing details or add some cinnamon sugar or sprinkles like how I’ve done. Store them in an airtight container and they will keep nice for at least a couple of weeks in my experience but it’s rare they ever last that long in my house!

Enjoy and please do let me know if you make them! Leave a comment here or you can tag me on Instagram, Twitter etc. You can find more of my recipes here.
