Shortbread Cookies with Pastel icing

Shortbread Cookies with Pastel icing

These are the cookies i grew up with. Someone in the family would buy these cookies and just leave it around the house. I used to bite off the icing off the cookies and throw the base back into the cookie box. Just because the cookie was dry and flavourless.

This is definitely not a problem for my homemade version.. With these cookies, old habits are reversed. I bite off the cookie and spit out the icing.

Recipe from Aalan Ooi “Cookies”
100 gr butter
50 gr caster sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
130 gr plain flour
11/2 TBS green pea flour
1/4 tsp baking soda

For the Decoration:
1 egg white
1/2 tsp lemon juice
200-250 gr icing sugar
dash of pink, yellow, green colouring

1. Cream ingredient A in a big mixing bowl until fluffy. Add in ingredient B, mix well. Fold in ingredient C to form a dough

2. Place ( 1 ) in between two sheets of plastic. Roll out to a thickness of 5 mm. Stamp out circles with cutter. Arrange on lined baking trays. Bake in a preheated oven at 170 degree Celcius for 12 mins or until baked through.

3. Place egg white for decoration in a big bowl. Beat with a balloon whisk until firm. Add in icing sugar and lemon juice. Whisk well and divide into three even parts. Colour the parts as desired.
