musical cookies

Just because they are cute....


85g butter, softened
100g brown sugar
1 egg
2 drops vanilla essence
175g flour (plus extra)
25g almond meal
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
pinch salt
for the glaze:
150g icing sugar, a little water, food colouring

Heat the oven to 180 degrees C (gas 4). Cream the butter with the sugar then add the egg and vanilla and beat until the mixture is smooth. In another bowl combine the flour, almond meal, baking powder and salt. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the creamed butter, stirring constantly. Correct the amount of flour should the dough look too sticky. Wrap the dough in a sheet of plastic and place in the fridge for at least an hour.
Flour a work bench, place the cooled dough on top, and then flour the top of the dough. Roll out with a rolling pin adding more flour if necessary until about a half centimeter thick. Using a cute mold (or liquer glass top) cut out shapes and place on a lined baking tray and bake for between 8 and 12 minutes (depending on the size of the cookies). Cool on a wire rack.
Mix the icing sugar and a touch of water (and any food colouring) in a small bowl and glaze the cookies to your heart's desire. Should make about 30 biccies.
