Night Sky Cookies!

125gm /4 oz butter softened
3/4 cup /170g /5 1/2 oz caster sugar
1/2 tsp
1 egg, light beaten
2 cups/ 250 g / 8 oz flour1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup / 60 ml/2 fl oz milk
90gm /3 oz white chocolate, melted
125gm / 4 oz dark chocolate, melted


  • Place butter, sugar and almond essence in a bowl and beat until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in egg.
  • Sift together flour and baking powder. Fold flour mixture and milk, alternately, into butter mixture and mix to form a soft dough.
  • Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to 5mm/1/4 in thick. Using a star and a moon-shaped cookie cutter, cut out cookies.
  • Place cookies on lightly greased baking trays and bake at 190C / 375F for 10 minutes or until cookies are golden and cooked. Transfer to wire racks to cool.
  • Dip tops of moon-shaped cookies in white chocolate {I skipped this as I didn't have white chocolate with me :)} and tips of star-shaped cookies in dark chocolate. Place on wire racks to set.


  • As an alternative, brush the cookies with beaten egg and sprinkle with sugare before baking.
