Christmas Cookies - via Germany

These would be nice with some lemongrass tea.

Don't these look really tasty? Mmmm.

After the dough comes together you form "logs"
and then refrigerate a bit before slicing into rounds.

Yecla sent this recipe and pictures for Christmas cookies. They look delicious! She also said you could add a bit of honey or a spice for flavor variation (I am thinking lemon zest would be nice in these).

250 grams butter, room temp
300 grams flour
dash of salt
125 grams sugar ( I will use Zulka moreno)

This is a pretty simple recipe, I like that it has few ingredients.

Mix the ingredients together and make four "logs" as shown in the picture. Then leave it in the refrigerator to "set." Cut your logs in 0.5 cm (I am thinking like 1/6-1/4") and place them on parchment paper (or a silpat). Bake at 180 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

Happy Winter Baking!

The Spanish version: (thank you Yecla)
Mezclar los ingredientes, amasarlos un poco y hacer los 4 rollos de la foto, despues dejarlo en el frigo, mientras limpias la cocina y recoges todo lo que has sacado. Después cortar los rollitos en galletitas de 0,5 cm, las mias eran un poco más grandes. (ver foto) Y dejarlos en el horno a 180° durante unos 10-12 minutos. Me salieron dos bandejas.

The ingredients list in German, for those of you who sprechen sie deutsch.
