Christmas wreath cookies

It features edible glitter stars!!!I could admit that I've been lazy or perhaps uninspired, but I rather say I lost my baking mojo. But all it took was the ingredient "edible glitter" that turned it right back on for me.



If you like to bake these little glittery goodies yourself, the recipe is as follows.

Ingredients:

3 cups self-raising flour
125g butter
60ml milk
2/3 cup caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
Edible glitter (I used stars!)

For lemon icing
3 cups icing sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Steps::

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Grease oven trays; line with baking paper.
Sift flour into bowl, rub in butter. Combine milk and sugar in saucepan, stir over low heat until sugar dissolved, add extract; cool 5 minutes. Stir combined warm milk mixture and egg into flour mixture.
Knead dough on floured surface until smooth.
Roll rounded teaspoons of dough into 13 cm sausages. Twist 2 sausages together, form into circles; press edges together. Place about 3cm apart on oven trays.
Bake about 15 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
Meanwhile, make the lemon icing. Sift icing sugar into small heatproof bowl; stir in enough juice to make a paste. Stir over small saucepan of simmering water until pourable.
Dip wreaths into icing; set at room temperature. Sprinkle with edible glitter.

Happy baking! Wishing you a happy holiday season!
