1 tbsp Taylor & Colledge Vanilla Paste
1 pinch of salt


250 g icing sugar

Step 1: To start making our vanilla cookie wreath beat the butter and sugar in the bowl of a standing mixer and until light and fluffy. Add vanilla paste and the egg and beat until combined. Add flour, baking powder and salt and beat until combined.

Step 2: Wrap the dough tightly in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, or overnight.

Step 3: Line two baking trays with parchment paper and set aside.

Step 4: Preheat oven to 180 °C /160 °C/ fan/ gas mark 4.

Step 5: Place the cookie dough on a floured surface and roll to ½ – 1 cm.

Step 6: Cut out the dough with star-shaped cookie cutters and place them 2 cm apart on the prepared baking trays. Repeat until all the dough is used.

Step 7: Bake 9-10 minutes or until cookies are golden brown around the edges.

Step 8: In the meantime, beat the icing sugar and the egg whites with an electric mixer until combined. Increase speed until it forms stiff peaks.

Step 9: Once cookies are completely cooled, decorate cookies with icing and sprinkles to finish your delicious vanilla cookie wreath.
