Fancy ice cream cookies

Me and the kids spent our Wednesday evening making these cookies. The kids really enjoyed themselves, as I let them decorate the cookies to their liking using sugar stars and sugar balls. I actually wanted to make chocolate chip cookies as per the one I recently made since the earlier batch lasted for less than 2 days, but I guess that can wait since the kids seem overly excited when I told them that we're gonna be making cookies in the shape of an ice cream.

They loved the cookies very much, and the cookies were gone in less than a day!

Here's the recipe that I used to make them, I've made slight changes to the amount of ingredients used as the dough feels too soft to roll-out. Original recipe can be found here.

130 grams butter
60 grams icing sugar
160 grams all purpose flour
30 grams corn flour
20 grams potato flour/starch
20 grams custard flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
20 grams ground almond

Dark compound chocolate - melted, and sugar stars/balls/crystals etc for decoration

  1. In a mixer, beat the butter and icing sugar until fluffy. 
  2. Add in the rest of the ingredients (flour, baking powder and ground almond) a little at a time on low speed until well incorporated.
  3. Using a rolling pin, roll-out the dough. Then, cut out the cookies using cookie cutter.
  4. Preheat the oven to 160 degree celcius and bake the cookies for 20 minutes.
  5. Decorate as desired using the melted chocolate and the sugar stars/balls/crystals etc.
