Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for 10 -15 minutes.
Now take the chilled dough and roll out into a 12 inch square that is about 1/8 inch thick, using a rolling pin. Use a cookie cutter and cut out cookies using your favorite cookie cutter shape (the recipe should make about 25, depending on how big your cutter is).
Make flower stem: Next cut the remaining dough into strips – 1/8 inch width and 6 inch long. Fold strip in half and twist strip together. I’ve done this in the photo above.
Lightly butter a baking tray and then line with oiled or baking sprayed parchment paper. Place the flower stems onto the baking tray.
Next brush the egg wash on top of the stem.Take a flower cookie and place on the top of the stem. Now make one hole on the top of flower using a toothpick.
Brush the egg on top of the flowers and stems.
Bake about 15 minutes at 200 c degrees or until the crust is golden brown.
Remove from oven and let cool.
Take a small strip of paper and write your fortune and connect it to the cookie with a piece of string threaded through the hole that you made in the flower. After that decorate.

Homemade Apple Jam Bread

Homemade Apple Jam Bread

                                                       STEP BY STEP RECIPE

                      Delicious apple jam bread recipe – and so easy to make.                             
                                             
  • 250 grams Plain Flour
  • 5 grams Yeast
  • 25 grams Sugar
  • ½ Tablespoons Salt
  • 110 milliliters Warm Water
  • 1 whole Egg, Beaten, Divided Use
  • 25 grams Butter, Softened
  • ½ cups Apple Jam
  •  
  • In a mixing bowl combine flour, yeast, sugar, and salt. Mix for 1 minute. Next add water and half of the beaten egg. Mix. Add butter and mix until combined. Knead by hand until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes.
    Cover the dough and let it rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes. After that, punch the dough down and make a large round ball and allow it to rise for 10 minutes longer.
    Now take out the dough ball and roll it out with a rolling pin until you have roughly a 12 x10 inch rectangle that is about 1/4 inch thick.
    Place the apple jam across the dough. I used homemade apple jam but store bought is fine. Spread it across the surface of the dough but leave about a 1 inch border around the entire rectangle – so the jam doesn’t ooze out. Roll the dough up into a log. Cut the log into 7 equal slices using a sharp knife.
    Place the dough slices in a greased baking pan. I staggered them, placing the cut sides beside each other and shaped the dough into a wheat stalk shape. I’ve done this in the photo above.
    Allow to rise for 10 minutes. Next brush the remaining beaten egg over the top of the bread.
    Bake at 200 C for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve and enjoy.

  Homemade Heart Shaped Cookies.


Welcome!

                               



 
                             
                                    Step By Step Recipe
 
                       

       You can eat cookies any time of the day.They are very easy to make.

    
                                                             
     
                                                           


                                                  
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 150 grams Flour, All Purpose
  • 60 grams Butter
  • 40 grams Sugar
  • 1 whole Egg Beaten
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence
  • 1 jar Candy Sprinkles, 2 Ounce Jar
  • ¼ cups Sugar - For Syrup
  • ¼ cups Water-For Syrup

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 200 C degrees.

Mix baking powder and flour, sift well.

In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar, beat well .
Add 1/2 of the beaten egg and vanilla, beat well. Then, mix in the flour mixture. It will be stiff so you may want to stir with a wooden spoon.

Cover the dough and refrigerate for one hour or until easy to handle.

On a well-floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/8 inch thickness using a rolling pin.

You need three different sized heart-shaped cookie cutters for this (one 2 inch, second 1 -1/2 inch, third 1 inch).

Using the largest heart shaped cookie cutter, cut 15 cookies. Next using the second heart shaped cookie cutter, cut 15 more cookies. After that, take the second batch of smaller sized cookies and cut a heart shape out of the middle of the cookie using the third cutter. Now separate the middle, smallest size heart.

Next brush the medium sized cookie with some of the remaining beaten egg, then place that over the top of the large cookie. If you want to make cookie ‘pops’, you can insert the point of a bamboo skewer into the point of the big heart cookie. (skewers should soak in water for at least five minutes beforehand, otherwise they will burn).

Place cookies on a greased baking sheet. Bake 8 minutes until light golden. Let cool.

For the syrup, add sugar and water into a heavy-bottomed pan and bring to boil over low heat to 105C degrees. Use a thermometer. Once the sugar is dissolved and it’s a bit thickened and reaches the right temperature, remove from heat.

Next brush sugar syrup in the middle of the heart-shaped cutout in the center of the cookies. Sprinkle candy sprinkles on top of the sugar syrup, in the middle of the cutout. I’ve done this in the photo above.

Serve and enjoy
