This dough is really the easiest to make, and quite versatile too.
Plus it has no butter in it – what’s best for a healthier and lighter breakfast or teatime treat?
This dough is the starting point for a lot of different cookies – in the picture above I filled it with Nutella, but you could put anything into it (such as jam, for example). You may want a chocolate-flavoured dough too, you just need to add a few tablespoons of cocoa powder.
I also made a few with an almond in the middle, and sprinkled them with brown sugar and icing sugar to decorate.
Ingredients are basic as well:
220 grams of plain flour
60 grams of vegetable oil
70 grams of sugar
Half a tsp of baking powder
… and this is it!
Put in a bowl the egg and the sugar and mix it well with the help of a fork. Then all’s well mixed, add the oil and the baking powder. Stir again. Then start to add the flour, little by little. When the dough is elastic and doesn’t stick to your fingers any more, it is ready.
With a rolling pin knead the dough, about 1 cm high (or less if you want to fill the cookies with anything) and put into a preheated oven (180 degrees) for some fifteen minutes.
This dough is great even for fruit tarts.
