Tips and tricks for Snowflake Cookies:

-The ingredients are for a yield of around 30 cookies, so you can adjust it depending on how many you need.

-The dough is freezer-friendly, so you can definitely freeze some in advance for a different occasion.

-Use a butter that is high in fat, Also, make sure your ingredients are room temperature when making the dough.

-To avoid making a mess, roll your dough in between two sheets of parchment paper. This will also help the dough stay cool and will prevent the butter from melting.

-The dough needs to rest for at least 1 hr in the fridge so that it’s firm enough. If you’re in a hurry, throw it in the freezer for half an hour!

-I used these cookie cutters for my cookies, but you can use anything you have around the house (hearts, gingerbread men, christmas tree shapes etc).

-If you’re decorating the cookies with the icing in the recipe, make sure you practice on a different surface before actually decorating. It’s easiest if you use a piping bag or a squeeze bottle like this one to be more precise.
