2 Last Minute Eid Gift Ideas


Assalamu alaykum everyone and Eid Mubarak!

As Ramadan is coming to an end I decide to share my last minute eid gift ideas. If your like me and don't have the energy to go for eid shopping do not worry I have your back.



 Your family and friends will love these, especially the kids.

Check my video below to find the easiest butter cookie recipe!



INGREDIENTS:

Butter Cookie:
  • 225g room temperature butter
  • 440g plain flour
  • 200g sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Royal Icing:
  • 3 cups icing sugar
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cream tartar
  • Food colouring


DIRECTIONS:
  1. Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl.
  2. Beat together butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer at medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes in a standing mixer (preferably fitted with paddle attachment) or 6 with a handheld. 
  3. Beat in egg and vanilla. Reduce speed to low, then add flour mixture and mix until just combined.
  4. Form dough into a 12-inch log (2 inches in diameter) on a sheet of plastic wrap and roll up dough in plastic wrap. Chill dough on a baking sheet until firm, at least 4 hours.
  5. Before baking, preheat the oven to 325°F.
  6. Line your baking sheets with parchment.
  7. Slice the dough into slices about 1/8" thick and place them on the sheets about an inch apart (they won't be spreading very much, but they need air room around each cookie).
  8. Bake until JUST beginning to turn golden around the edges, about 16-18 minutes.
  9. Cool on sheets 3 minutes, then transfer with a metal spatula to racks to cool completely. Make more cookies with remaining dough on cooled baking sheets.
  10. Note: you can do many things with these cookies.You could roll the dough out and cut shapes.


Royal icing:
  1. In a big bowl combine icing sugar, cream of tartar, vanilla extract and egg whites.
  2. With an electric hand mixer beat everything until it is very stiff and white and stands up in peaks.
  3. Spread over the top of cookies and rough up the icing with a spatula so that it forms peaks. (If you want a smooth icing you may need to thin the icing down a little with more egg white or water.)
