These blue snowflake cookies are naturally colored with red cabbage! Yes, you’ve read that right: they’re colored with red cabbage! 😀 Isn’t it such a beautiful baby blue? And don’t worry, they don’t taste of red cabbage! 😉
- 250g (2 cups) flour
- 125g (1/2 cup) butter
- 50g (1/4 cup) sugar
- 2 egg yolks
- pinch of salt
Preheat the oven to 180°C/ 350°F. Knead all ingredients together. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/4″ (1/2cm) thick. Cut out cookies with a round or fluted cookie cutter. Bake for 10 minutes.
Natural Blue Icing Recipe
- powdered sugar
- hot water
- homemade natural blue food coloring made with red cabbage
Stir together powdered sugar and some hot water (don’t use lemon juice because natural food coloring is ph-sensitive). The icing should be thick but pourable. Color one part of the icing with some drops homemade natural blue food coloring made with red cabbage. Add less homemade natural blue food coloring for baby blue and more for dark blue.
Ice the cookies with the natural blue icing. Let the icing dry for some minutes. Then use the white icing to draw snowflakes onto the blue cookies.
