Tips from the Author

  • The butter should rest and cool down after you melt it. If the butter is still hot when you mix it with the egg, the egg would curdle.
  • If you don’t have baking bowder, you can use 1,5 teaspoons of carbonate and a few drops of lemon juice instead of 10 grams of baking powder.
  • You shouldn’t use the fan mode of your oven while baking cookies.
  • Make sure that you don’t overbake the cookies. Just when they start to change color, you should take them out.

  • Mix the lukewarm melted butter and egg in a bowl.

  • You must achieve a homogenously mixed cookie dough. Wrap the dough and let it rest in the fridge for 1 hour.
  • Roll the dough on the counter between 2 sheets of baking paper. The dough layer must be 1-1,5 cm thick.
  • By using a cookie cutter of your choosing, cut shapes out of the cookie dough layer.
  • Transfer the shapes onto an oven tray which you covered with a sheet of baking paper beforehand.
  • Preheat the oven at 180℃ (do not use the fan mode).
  • Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes until the tops start to change color.
