       Stars cookies

       Every year I bake Christmas cookies with my mum. My favourite cookies are "Linzer stars". 

       Ingredients: plain flour (210 g), icing sugar (70 g), butter (140 g), egg yolk (2), vanilla sugar (1 bag), jam (sour)

       Recipe: First put flour, sugar, butter, yolk, and vanilla sugar in a bowl and mix with your clean hands. Then put 

       the dough in a fridge for an hour. Then put the dough on a table and use a roll spin to make a 0.5 cm high cake.

    Next take a metal form in the shape of a star and cut the stars. Put baking paper on a try. Put your stars on the try. Heat the oven on 200° C.

    Bake about 15minutes. When the stars cool down, spread jam on one piece and stick the other one on it. Wait about 10 days before you eat them.
