One of my favorite Christmas’ habits is to decorate cookies. I love them for decorating home, for eating but in particular I love the moment when I sit down with a several colored sugar paste and cookies, ready for the creative part.
In my family we do not love gingerbread cookies so I work on some simple chocolate cookies with typical Christmas shape, trees, bells and stars. Then I use the colored paste for decorating them, here is the recipe:
Decorating sugar paste recipe.
- 1 egg white
- 200g of icing sugar
- 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
To get the dough whip the egg whites adding the sugar a little at a time and the lemon juice. Finally add the color of your choice. I choose white and pink this year and I love it! When you finish, let your cookies rest, the dough needs some time to dry.
