These beauties are inspired by the Dutch ‘likkoekjes’. These cookies are small biscuits with a colored glaze, especially suited for kids. The idea behind this glaze is that you can like it off and then show off with a colored tongue. Definitely one of my childhood favorites!
- Rolling Pin
- Cookie Cutter // or Scone Cutter
- 150 gram Flour + 3 tablespoons extra
- 50 gram Cornstarch
- 50 gram Butter cold butter in small cubes
- 2 gram Baking Powder
- 100 gram Powdered Sugar
- 1 Egg
- 2 tbsp Milk
- 1 Egg White
- 180 gram Powdered Sugar
- Food Coloring
Making the dough
- Mix the flour, corn starch, pinch of salt, baking powder, sugar, egg and cold butter (in small cubes).
- Add some milk once you notice that the dough is a bit too dry. This does depend as well on the size of the egg. So if the dough is too wet, you can add some extra flour.
- When the dough is mixed evenly; let it rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
Cutting the Cookies.
- Preheat the oven on 180 degrees Celsius or 356 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Place some flour on the kitchen counter. Then use a rolling pin to roll out the dough to a 5mm or 0.2 inches thickness.
- Use a scone or cookie cutter to make the cookies.
- Bake these beauties on baking paper on the oven tray for about 10 minutes.
- Let the cookies cool before starting this step. When the cookies are warm, the glaze will slide off.
- Whisk the egg white until a bit more foamy (however not until meringue stage). Then add the powdered sugar. Whisk until you have a firm white glaze.
- Add any colorings if you like, and swirl them through the glaze by using a fork or wooden skewer.
- Then dip the cookies topside down in the glaze. Use a fork to lift the cookies out of the glaze.
- Try to let the glaze harden before consuming. However, I do understand that may be difficult 😉
