Hello it's Valentine Series #2 : Butter Creamcheese Cookies

Sawasdee ka~

If you didn't like the idea of making photo book in the first post of this Valentine series. Make a sweety for your loved one may be another good choice. I usually make molded chocolate, cupcake or cookies on Valentine's day. Today I'm going to post my favourite cookies recipe that is really easy to make and yummy. I won't make them this year though because I'm not in my flat (in Japan now). So I can't show you guys my cookies decoration pictures. To apologise, I will put loads of cookie decoration examples I found in this post instead. Hope you don't mind :)

What you need for cookies
3 cups Plain flour
1/2 teaspoon Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Salt
3/4 cups Caster sugar
226.5 grams Unsalted butter

1 teaspoon Vanilla extract

Baking the Cookies
1. Mix all dry ingredient together and leave it
2. In a different bowl, blend butter and cream cheese until well mixed then add sugar and blend for 2 minutes
3. Add an egg and vanilla extract in a wet ingredient bowl and mix it for another 2 minutes
4.Once the ingredients are “fluffy” add in dry ingredients slowly for 2 minutes
5. Wrap the dough and put it in a fridge for at least 2 hours
6. When you ready preheat oven to 375 F. Line a baking sheet on a tray you want to use
7. Roll out dough to ¼ inch thick
8. Next you can cut to any shape you would like (I used a heart shape to show a little more love)
9. After cutting the shapes bake for 10 - 12 minutes (Don’t place to close as they will expand while cooking)
10. Once golden brown remove from oven and let cool for 20 minutes

250 g Royal icing (I used royal icing from Silver Spoon)
30 ml water
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Few drops of food colours

Icing the cookies

2. Separate royal icing in to 2 bowls or more depend on how many colour you pick
3. Use the colours you have picked
4. Put the icing in an icing bag
