Recipes of Cookies

LadyBird Cookies

Extra equipment :
- sieve
- rolling pin
- round cookie cutter
- palette knife

Ingredients :
- 100 grams butter
- 100 grams caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
- 275 grams plain flour

For the icing :
- 400 grams icing sugar
- 3-4 tablespoons water
-  red food colouring
- dark chocolate, melted

Method :
* Preheat the oven to 190'C
* Line the baking tray with baking paper.
* Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla extract, a little at a time, and mix well.
* Sift the flour into the creamed mixture and, using our hands, create a smooth, firm dough. Refrigerate the mixture for 15 minutes.
* Roll the dough out on a floured surface until it is 1 cm thick. Using the cookie cutter, cut the dough into circles and transfer to the baking tray.
* Bake the cookies in the oven for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown, and then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
For the icing :
* Sift the icing sugar into a bowl and add enough water to make a smooth, thick paste. Add one or two drops of red food colouring to three-quarters of the icing, reserving some white for later. With the palette knife, spread the red icing over each cookie and leave to set. 
* Use the melted dark chocolate to decorate each cookie with spots and a head and leave to set. To finish, use the reserved white icing for the eyes, topping them off with chocolate for the pupils.
