We are hosting a small brunch event this sunday....

Something exciting is going to happen on Sunday....a shared cooking & baking event with GOUSFOOD in his brand new kitchen. I am not quite sure to which part I am looking forward the most..test the new kitchen, sharing the recipes, cooking together, host the guests....it´s all so exciting and I cannot wait for Sunday to come...

We are planning to host a small brunch event, with some of our favorite recipes to be shared and enjoyed. A little photo shooting was on the agenda too...definitely an area I can learn a lot. I love taking pictures, but do not really know the tricks...

As for today I am going to share my favorite vanilla-butter cookies recipe. They are rich in taste, but very fine in texture, a perfect cookie for the afternoon tea or coffee...

Vanilla butter cookies:

  • 200 g butter soft
  • 90 g icing sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 fresh vanilla pod
  • 300 g flour
Preheat the oven to 180C. Mix together butter and icing sugar. Cut open the vanilla pod and take out the seeds. Add vanilla, egg yolks and flour to the butter mixture, combine everything together to a big dough ball, wrap it in a plastic wrap and let it chill in refrigerator for 30 min.
Take the dough out, form dough balls (walnut size), lie them on a baking sheet and press either with a cookie stamp, fork or meat tenderizer (I personally love to use it for making these cookies). Bake for 10-12 minutes, till golden brown on the edges.
You can store them for couple of weeks in a airtight container.

Enjoy...and get ready for the updates on the brunch event, new recipes and nice photos
