World AIDS Day Cookie Recipe

World AIDS Day is on December 1st each year and is an opportunity for people to join together to show support for people living with HIV and to remember those who have died from an A illness

Mark World AIDS Day with red ribbon cookies…

Ingredients for the cookies:

200g dairy-free butter
1 tsp vanilla paste
100g caster sugar
300g plain flour, sifted

For the icing:

125g icing sugar
15ml warm water
Red food colouring

Ready, steady, bake!

Step 1: cream the butter, vanilla and sugar together.  Stir in the flour and mix into a dough.  Wrap in cling film and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to firm up

Step 2: meanwhile, preheat the oven to 160C/140C (fan)/320F and line a baking tray with parchment paper

Step 3: once the dough is chilled, roll out to approximately1/2cm thickness and cut with your red ribbon cutter.  Place on the baking sheet, sprinkle with a little extra sugar and bake for 12/15 minutes until golden brown at the edges, turning halfway through to ensure even baking

Step 4: leave to cool for at least 10 mins before serving or decorations

Step 5: sift the icing sugar into a bowl and gradually add the warm water until the icing becomes thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.  If necessary, add a drop of water or the icing sugar to adjust the consistency.  Add drops of red food colouring until you get a lovely dark red colour then ice your cookies
