h0h0h0, It's Christmas Cookies Time !

 do they look adorable? (^^) i spent almost half day to bake and decorate them. my cookies base unfortunately is 能看不能吃 (taste awful!). so the whole batch of cookies just meant for Christmas tree decoration. Well, I'm not gonna to reveal my worst ever cookies recipe to you all, but i would like to share the recipe for icing. Compare to previous icing that i made last year, this is much whitish& smoother.

Ingredient that u need are 
  • 1 egg white
  • 230g powder sugar 
  • 3 tspn lemon juice 
whisk the egg white until foamy. then sift in the icing sugar and stir until smooth. add the lemon juice and keep stirring until you get a smooth and glossy consistency like picture below.
Icing recipe adapted from Angie's Recipe .

For the other half of my cookies dough, i decided to bake the famous Stained Glass Cookies. i reckon it will look great under the Christmas tree lighting. 

  1. baking time must not exceed 10 minutes. other wise the candy will start bubble (like the picture above) and out from center.
  2. poke a small hole on the top of each cookies before baking, if the cookies are used for ornament.
  3. smaller the center, the color will be more significant.
