A Plätz­chen a day keeps the Weih­nach­s­stress away

Cookies soothe and make you happy, because sugar promotes the release of neuro­trans­mit­ters such as dopa­mine in the brain. Addi­tio­nally, there are the effects of short-chain fatty acids, essen­tial amino acids and the many deli­cious smells. No wonder cookies are so popular. For those who also want to keep cookie baking as stress-free as possible, here’s an “easy going” recipe an almost-guarantee.

125 g cold butter
200 g wheat flour
100 g sugar
1 sachet vanilla sugar
1 egg

Knead the butter, flour, sugar, vanilla sugar, and egg into an even dough and put it in the fridge for half an hour. Roll out the dough on a floured work surface to a thic­k­ness of about half a centi­metre and cut out the biscuits in any chosen shape. Bake the biscuits in a preheated oven (180°C top/bottom heat, fan oven: 160°C) for approx. 7–10 minutes on a tray lined with baking paper. Deco­rate as desired.

For a vegan version, knead 200 g vegan marga­rine, 300 g flour, 100 g sugar, 1 sachet vanilla sugar and 1 pinch of salt and chill the dough for about an hour.

Have fun and enjoy!
