Share Christmas Recipes to Make with Kids: Chocolate Reindeer Cookies
The reindeer chocolate cookies is a perfect Christmas recipe to make with children, because if for example you make a hole in the top of the cookie, with a skewer stick before baking it, then you can hang them from the Christmas tree, which children will love.
They are also made of chocolate and I know a few children who resist this ingredient so I'm sure they'll have a great time making and enjoying these delicious cookies. I saw the idea of decorating on Pinterest and I loved it from the first moment since it is very simple, so it does not entail any difficulty for the kids in the house .
Ingredients for 16 cookies
- For the dough: 350 g of confectionery flour, 50 g of pure cocoa powder, 1 pinch of salt, 125 g of icing sugar, 200 g of butter in ointment point, 1 egg M, vanilla powder.
- For decoration: White chocolate covered, red candies Lacasito type, pastry bag, fine nozzle.
How to make chocolate reindeer cookies
Beat the butter with the sugar until you get a soft cream . Add the egg and vanilla and continue beating until everything is integrated. Little by little we toss the sieved flour with the cocoa and the pinch of salt and mix until forming a dough. The dough should be like plasticine, a little softer.
Divide the dough into two parts, flatten it a little, wrap it in transparent film and refrigerate for at least two hours, until it hardens. We preheat the oven to 180º with heat up and down. Place the dough on a sheet of baking paper, cover with another sheet so that it does not stick to the roll, and stretch it with a thickness of one centimeter.
We cut circular portions with the help of a round cutter or a glass simply. We place very carefully, so as not to deform, the cookies in a non-stick baking tray or in a greased plate or lined with baking paper.
Bake the cookies for about 12 minutes, remove them, let stand on the tray for five minutes and pass them to a rack until they are completely cold to decorate. To decorate them, we will melt the chocolate in a bain-marie or in the microwave very carefully since the white chocolate is more delicate, we put it in a pastry bag with a thin mouthpiece and mark several chocolate dots on each cookie.
One that will make glue for the nose, two dots that will make eyes of the reindeer and then for the cuernecitos. Let the chocolate dry before consuming the cookies . They are preserved in perfect condition several days if we preserve them from humidity.
