Yep, I think these are amazing.
I love good old Tolkien. I’m sure i saw this on Pinterest once and thought they could be easily made with the family sugar cookie recipe! They went down very well, although I was told by my partner that he imagined the door a darker shade of green…no complaints on the taste however!
If you are not that much of a fan of the books/films, this is still a pretty yummy sugar cookie recipe and you can use any cookie cutter and decorate however you want!
- 100g unsalted butter, softened
- 100g caster sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- 275g plain flour
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Step by step:
Step One: Preheat the oven to the 190 degrees. Line a baking tray with grease proof paper
Step Two: Cream the butter and sugar together. It should be light and fluffy!
Step Three: Beat in the vanilla and egg, little by little until all combined
Step Four: Stir in flour until its looking like a dough
Step Five: Roll the dough out onto a slightly floured surface. It should be about 1 cm thick. Using any biscuit cutters you fancy cut out your shapes!
Step Six: Bake for about 8 – 10 minutes. Let them harden a little before you finally cool them on a wire rack
Step Seven: Decorate however you fancy!
