I always get itchy around the holidays to make some yummy’s. It def is the time to spoil and indulge a bit. Unfortunately it’s also one of the busiest and craziest periods of the year. So it’s great to have an easy breezy recipe at your disposal to still indulge without being stuck in the kitchen all day. These cornflour cookies are perfect for fast prepping and baking with great results. You can pipe them into cute Christmas trees or simply roll the dough into little balls then add a pattern with a fork. Sprinkles on top and tadaaa cuteness galore!
Cornflour cookies are def a Surinamese classic and this is my moms recipe, so you better take good care of it. Back in the days she used to make these cookies a lot and they’d be finished in no time! A whole container of crispy cookies that melt in your mouth, who can resist that? Certainly not me ;)
Ingredients (about 20-30 cookies)
125 gr sugar
125 gr butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg (M)
250 gr cornflour
Preheat oven to 170 C.
Mix butter, sugar and vanilla until nice and fluffy.
Add egg and continue mixing until the sugar is almost fully dissolved.

Place the dough in a piping bag and pipe some cute Christmas trees or garlands.
Add a bit more cornflour if you want to roll the dough into little balls.
