Cookie Advent Calendar: Shortbread Stamped Cookies

Without extra words: I like this recipe a lot! It’s very easy to make dough a day before. It’s very easy and funny to roll it and stamp cookies. Cookies by themselves are tasty as well, but additionally can be an eatable decorative element for cakes and pies.

The cookies will hold their shape well even if you are using a cutter with very narrow elements – just look at the snowflakes above. And these elements will not blur in the oven during baking. In addition, cookies will retain their texture, if you choose a carved rolling pin or textured cutter.
