What with the Royal Wedding last weekend, it totally inspired us to get baking. Isla and I made these cute Royal crown cookies whilst we watched the Royal Wedding footage. I based the cookies on our Monster Inc recipe as they are really tasty and great for decorating. I hope you like them…
200g unsalted butter at room temperature
200g caster sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
400g plain flour
Decoration – we used an edible gold glitter spray, coloured edible pearls and coloured writing icing.
Beat butter and sugar with KitchenAid, until pale and fluffy.
Gradually add the beaten egg a little at a time.
Mix in the vanilla extract.
Using a palette knife, mix in the flour. Then use your hands to bring the dough together to form a ball.
Wrap in cling film and chill for at least an hour.
Dust a work surface, then roll out the dough to about 5mm thick.
We cut crown shapes with a knife, we did all different shapes and sizes.
Bake in the oven for around 12/15 minutes (depending on how thick you have rolled out the dough).
Decorate with what ever you have: writing icing, pearls, glitter! Have fun…
