Ingredients #

  • 150g icing sugar
  • 225g butter (*)
  • 300g plain flour, sifted, plus extra for dusting
  • 55g cocoa powder, sifted

Icing #

  • 50g of icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp of lemon juice
  • water 
  • sprinkles, for decorating 

Method #

Put everything in a food processor and pulse until the mixture is combined to form a dough.

Wrap in cling film and refrigerate for 1 hour. 

Make the icing once waiting.

Combine icing sugar with a few drops of lemon juice and 1 tbsp of water. Stir until the consistency of a cream. Put your icing into the piping bag. 

Heat the oven to 180C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.

Take the dough from the fridge and divide it into 2 parts.

Put each part on a lightly floured surface and gently roll it out to a thickness of 1 cm.

You can sprinkle flour to prevent the dough from sticking to the rolling pin. 

Rolled and cut chocolate cookies before baking

Cut out your cookies using your favourite cutter and bake for 10 to 12 minutes.

Tips #

If you don’t have a food processor you can also combine all ingredients by hand.

The number of cookies depends on the size of the cookie cutter you use.
