I don’t know if you feel the same way as I do, but prior to the fulltime work life, I really loved baking, and I would whip up a cake or some homemade goodies on a regular basis. But ever since I started working 40 hours a week, it seems like there’s never enough time for these fun baking sessions.
But then I found a ridiculously easy and fast 25-minute cookie recipe! What’s even better is: it only costs around 1€ to make these delicious babies.
Just a few weeks ago, I was looking for a thumb print cookies recipe, because I had some jars of homemade jam left from last Christmas. And I was in luck: I found a terrific recipe that saves you time, is super cheap, and honestly, a lot of fun to make!
Big up to the website where I found the recipe – all credits go to Solo. Please give this recipe a go, you’ll be amazed!
Ingredients for 15 to 20 cookies:
- 200g of self-raising flour (0.26€)
- 100g of white sugar (0.15€)
- 100g of butter at room temperature (0.32€)
- 1 egg (0.26€)
- Jam (+/- 0.10€)
Total:1.09 € for 15 to 20 freshly baked cookies. Can’t do much better than that!!
Here’s how to make them:
- Start by preheating you oven at 180° Celsius
- Mix the self-raising flour with the sugar. Cut the butter into small pieces and mix with the dry ingredients. Knead everything together.
3. Finally, add the egg and mix everything well.
4. You’ll now have an elastic dough. Roll the dough onto a surface that you’ve powdered with flour until the sheet is 0.5 cm thick – using a rolling-pin
5. Use your cookie cutters to cut out the cookies
6. Transfer your cookies onto a lined baking sheet. If you’d like to make thumb print cookies, press your thumb into the center of each cookie to create a small indentation, and add a little bit of jam into each indentation (don’t overdo it, you won’t need much)
7. Bake the cookies for 10 to 15 minutes
This cookie dough is ridiculously easy to make, and offers a great variety of options for decorating. Chocolate, frosting, jam… Just have a quick search on Pinterest and be marvelled by all of the magnificent cookie ideas out there!
I must confess that sometimes, on the weekends, I whip up a batch of these cookies, make myself a delicious cup of coffee and I settle down to write my blog. It is just an awesome way of spending my time.
How about you? Do you like to bake? How do you enjoy spending your weekends?
