Santa Claus Cookies – Cookie Biscuits Recipe – Italian Cuisine

Work with butter and sugar cream in a bowl. Add egg and vanilla and mix, then add flour, yeast and salt and work until you get a smooth dough.

Wrap the dough pastry with the plastic wrap and let it rest in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

Pick up the pastry and roll it out in a 3-4 mm sheet on the floured work surface or covered with parchment paper, then cut the biscuits with a round shape with a diameter of about 8 cm.

Place the biscuits on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 180 ° C in a preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are golden. Once baked, let it cool.

Now prepare the frosting by working the mascarpone well with the icing sugar until you get a cream.

Roll out the sugar paste into a thin sheet, then make circles with the same form used to create the biscuits. Then cut each circle of sugar paste in half.

Cover the biscuits with a thin layer of half mascarpone frosting: use it to attach the sugar paste caps.
Then create with the frosting mascarpone, which you have put in a sac a poche with a small star spout, the decorations of the hat and the tufts of beard

Complete the decoration by adding 2 drops of chocolate to make the eyes (always use a little 'frosting to attach) and a ball of sugar paste for the nose.
Your Santa Claus cookies are ready: serve them and amaze your children!

Do Your Recipes Measure Up?

When a very positively reviewed cookie, cake, or other pastry recipe and gets an atypically bad appraisal, it can often be traced back to flour measuring technique, or lack there of. I did this video a few years ago to illustrate the point, and since we’re heading into holiday baking season, I thought it’d be a great time to review.

This isn’t to say that people don’t occasionally post recipes with ingredient errors [clears throat nervously], but if a cookie gets mostly rave reviews, and yet you thought it was a little dense, there’s a chance it could be this common culprit. Anyway, this clip shows you why weight is better, and also how to properly measure by volume. Enjoy!
