How to make Shortbread cookies for Easter
Cookies covered with multicolored glaze will decorate your Easter table. And besides, children love him very much.
Mash soft butter in a bowl with a fork, add powdered sugar and mix. Take two chicken yolks, add to a bowl and mix until smooth.
Add flour and mix. We take the resulting dough in our hands and form a ball. We wrap it in plastic wrap and in the refrigerator for 30-40 minutes.
Then roll out the dough between two sheets of parchment 6- 7 mm thick.
Preheat the oven to 180 gr. While the oven is heating, we make shapes for Easter-themed shapes.
We shift the figures onto a baking sheet covered with parchment, and from the remains we form a ball again, roll out and make the figures again, and so on until the dough runs out.
Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. The finished cookies are slightly browned. Before you decorate it, you need to cool it completely.
While the cookies are cooling, we will prepare the glaze. Pour the proteins into a small bowl and add the sifted powdered sugar one spoonful at a time. Mix well until smooth.
Add powdered sugar until the glaze is thick.
In a new plastic bag, put one tablespoon of glaze and tie the bag.
Spread the remaining glaze into bowls and add a drop of dye to each bowl. Then put each color into bags. Cut off the corners of 1 mm and decorate the cookies by squeezing out the glaze at your discretion.
