To get into the Halloween atmosphere, I made crispy almond cookies in the shape of witch hats decorated with a layer of icing. They are very easy to make and only take 10 to 12 minutes in the oven. And a cookie cutter is not necessary either, with a knife you can easily cut hats out of the dough.
Decorating is also a breeze with the new Cookie Icings from Dr. Oetker. This is in fact already in a handy piping bag so that you only have to knead briefly and afterwards you can easily draw lines or fill areas. After 4 hours they are completely hardened and you can stack them in the cookie jar. This way you can already stock up for when kids come to the door 🙂
55 g slivered almonds, finely ground (or almond flour)
275 gr flour + a little bit for dusting
1 teaspoon baking powder
120 g sugar
1 packet of vanilla-flavored sugar
110 g butter, cooled
pinch of salt
1 tablespoon cold water
Bags Dr. Oetker Cookie Icing (white and/or pink)
Dr Oetker Soft pearls
Possibly Dr. Oetker dyes
Baking tray with baking paper
Mixer with dough hooks
Mix the flour, ground almonds, vanilla sugar, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Cut the butter into pieces and add together with the cold water and the egg. Knead the dough with a mixer with dough hooks.
Knead it briefly with your hands until you have a smooth dough and then put it in the fridge for half an hour. Meanwhile heat the oven to 180 degrees. Dust a work surface with flour and roll out the dough to about 4 mm thick.
Cut out hats with a knife and slide them on the baking tray with a spatula with a little flour. If necessary, touch up the tips of the hat with your fingers so that they are slightly slanted. Bake the cookies in the oven for 10 to 12 minutes and then let them cool completely. Knead the bags of Cookie Icing with your fingers for 1 minute.
Decoration tip 1:
Draw a line of 2 mm from the edge with the pink and white icing around the cookies. Make a double line for the strap of the hat and use a pearl as a buckle. Finish the hats with some dots of icing.
Put some of the white icing in a bowl and mix in some yellow and red food coloring and mix until an even orange color. Brush the top with a small spoon up to 2 mm from the edge of the cookies. Draw a line with the bag of icing where the belt should go. Decorate the hats further with pearls.
