Xmas cookies with Ivano and kids
What type of food do you think of first if someone says “Christmas”?
We say – cookies!
We knew we wanted to put our ambassador Ivano in our Gorenje kitchen - along with the kids from his handball school he has with his friend Petar Metličić. We wanted to prove that sport and cooking are more connected than we may think, so our mission was to test if the team spirit from the training hall can be translated into the kitchen.
So, if we had the team and the trainer and our Gorenje kitchen, then only one thing was missing – food! It’s Christmas time and as we already said for us, Christmas food means cookies. Below is our cookie recipe just in case you start craving those delicious cookies from the photos that Ivano and his team made. Don`t forget to watch a video about it in our gallery!
500 g flour
150 g of sugar or coconut sugar
1 baking powder
1 inch cinnamon
1 vanilla sugar
Dark chocolate (melted)
Butter (room temperature), sugar, cinnamon and vanilla sugar, foam with an electric mixer.Then add flour and baking powder and mix with the hands. Cover, and chill dough until firm, about 30min.
On a floured board, roll dough out to about 1/8 inch thickness, and cut with cookies models. Bake at 180 ° C for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are barely brown. Remove from cookie sheets to cool. Melt the chocolate slowly stopping to stir approximately every 10 seconds until the chocolate is fully melted. Dipped half of cookie into the chocolate and than into the coconut flour.
