- Hey everybody, it's Natasha of natashaskitchen.com.
Today I'm gonna teach you how to make
one of my favorite Christmas cookies.
Actually, I make these all year long.
They're delicious and they're beautiful.
You have to get your hands on this recipe.
We start by creaming together 14 tablespoons of butter.
And two tablespoons of sugar.
(upbeat music)
Now we're gonna combine a teaspoon of baking soda
with two cups of flour.
I always sift it in just to make sure
there aren't any clumps of soda.
Then whisk those together.
(upbeat music)
Add all of your flour mixture into your creamed butter.
Then add two tablespoons of sour cream,
and your two egg yolks.
Now keep the egg whites for later.
(upbeat music)
Mix that together on medium speed
until the sides of the bowl are clean,
and you've got a dough formed.
When you touch it, it's going to feel a little sticky
but it won't stick to your fingers.
Now onto the meringue.
We're gonna combine two egg whites
with three quarters cup of sugar.
Beat those together on high speed,
this takes about six or seven minutes.
This is where you master the skill
of keepin' yourself entertained.
Finally, we have semi-stiff peaks, so we know it's ready.
You'll need a large sheet of parchment paper.
At least 20 inches long.
(upbeat music)
Transfer all of your cookie dough onto your parchment paper.
Start rollin' it out.
(upbeat music)
If you find it's sticking at all to your rolling pin,
just sprinkle on some flour.
(upbeat music)
Because I want to make as many cookies as humanly possible,
I straighten out the edges.
Then I measure it,
so it's about seven inches by 20 inches long.
Now you're gonna pour on that luscious meringue
that you made earlier.
Spread it out leaving about an inch border on all sides.
For the next step, the parchment paper is your best friend.
Use it help you roll the dough into a log.
Try to get that first turn tucked as tightly as you can
and this'll help you roll it as you go.
(upbeat music)
You'll see some of that meringue gets pushed out,
totally normal.
Slice the cookie log into about half inch rounds
and put them on the parchment paper about an inch apart.
You'll notice as you slice, that some of the meringue
gets pushed out more on one side than the other.
Make sure to put this side up on the parchment paper.
Slide a large cookie sheet under your cookies,
and trim off any excess parchment paper.
Time to get those babies in the oven.
They get 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 15 to 17 minutes.
They're ready when they're golden on top
and beginning to brown at the bases.
Once they come out of the oven,
pull them with the parchment paper onto a cooling rack
and let them come completely to room temperature.
Then we sprinkle on the powdered sugar.
Maybe it was more than a sprinkle.
(upbeat music)
These were a little bit messy, but so worth it,
and really fun to make.
Now I get to eat one.
What I love about these is they're soft on the outside,
chewy on the inside and kind of crisp around the edges
with that meringue.
Ah, wonderful.
So good.
Just delicious.
It's the perfect Christmas cookie.
