Sugar Cookies, Tolkien Style

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!

Ingredients:

  • 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!
