Sugar snowflake pops
- 350g of all-purpose flour
- 230g of unsalted butter
- 300g of sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1½ tsp of pure vanilla extract
- ½ tsp of almond extract
- Pinch of salt
- Icing sugar
- Green food colouring
- Red food colouring
- Silver balls
- White sprinkles
Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F. Prepare baking tray with butter or oil and flour.
In a large bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
Combine with the egg and vanilla and almond extract.
Fold in flour and a pinch of salt, mixing as you go.
Roll out cookie dough flats, and insert sticks (make sure these are heatproof).
Bake for 10 - 12 minutes until the cookies are lightly browned.
Decorate once cooled - with whatever Christmas designs you fancy!
Mix icing sugar and butter together in a bowl. Stir in a little milk. Be careful not to go overboard - icing only needs very little liquid, as you want it to have a nice, thick consistency.
