Remember you can make most of my recipes lactose free, which I always do, you'll just have to get the right ingredients.
What you'll need
- 1 Batch of Sand Cookie Dough
- Yellow Food Colouring, gel or powder
*Make sure these ingredients are at room temperature.
What you'll need
- Plastic Wrap
- Big Triangular Cookie Cutter*
- Small Triangular Cookie Cutter*
- Stack of paper or a Rolling Pin Ring of 3 millimetres thick
*They need to be almost or entirely equilateral. The cookie cutters I used were 4,6 centimetres and 1,9 centimetres high. You measure the height by measuring from the top straight down to the base. Make sure your smaller triangle fits inside the bigger one without entirely touching the sides of it, so your cookies won't break too easily.
You'll also need the tools used in this recipe.
- Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
- Prepare the dough as described in this recipe.
- Colour the dough by kneading in as much yellow food colouring as needed to achieve the shade of yellow you want.
- Shape the dough into a rectangle or ball, whichever you prefer, and wrap it in some plastic wrap.
- Refrigerate the cookie dough for an hour.
- Place your cooled cookie dough on a baking mat and roll it out to about 3 millimetres thick.
NOTE: Use a stack of paper or a rolling pin ring of 3 millimetres thick. Place plastic wrap on top of the dough to roll it out or use a little bit of flour so the dough won't stick to your rolling pin.
- Cut out the bigger triangles place them on a baking tray lined with baking paper, then cut out the smaller ones and remove them.
- Place the tray in the oven and bake the cookies for about 10 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.
NOTE: Once they're done the bottom will be slightly browned.
- Let them cool completely before handling, or they'll crumble.
Leftover dough: Gather it up and repeat steps 4 through 8.
