12 Days of Christmas Cookies: Day 6- Grinch Cookies

I was so tempted to keep this recipe until Day 12, but I was far too excited to share my all time favourite Christmas movie inspired bake!

These Grinch green cookies are complete with a candy cinnamon heart that definitely is ‘two sizes too small’!

Ingredients 

170g butter

170g plain flour 

57g icing sugar

57g custard powder 

green food colouring- I used a gel type so I didn’t need to use as much. (Add as much until you get the colour you like.)

icing sugar for dusting

small candy hearts (if you cannot get these then you can always make sugar paste hearts) 

 

Method 

Pre heat oven to 175°c. Line a flat baking tray with grease proof paper. 

Mix all ingredient together in a bowl. Roll the dough into small balls and place equally spaced onto the baking tray. 

Bake for around 10 minutes, checking frequently, or until golden brown at the edges (this may be difficult to tell due to the cookies being green!) 

Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a little bit before dusting them in icing sugar. Last, but not least, gently press the candy heart into the centre of the cookie.
