They won't be my grandmother's, but they come out great.

Do you want to surprise the family at Christmas? Here's an idea that doesn't fail.

For years I looked for my grandmother's recipe for Christmas cookies. I'm not going to lie to you: I never found it. But in the search I came across these, which are not the same but are exquisite. Ingredients:
  • 100 grams of butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups leavening flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon sweetened cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon powdered ginger
  • half a teaspoon of cardamom
  • half a teaspoon of cloves
  • pinch black pepper
Preparation: Mix the butter with the sugar, add the egg, the vanilla and the spoonful of milk. Mix the flour previously mixed with the spices. Form a dough and let it rest for ten minutes in the fridge. Stretch until half a centimetre high, cut the biscuits and bake for 10 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.
