One of my favorite things to do is to come up with new ways to use food.
Like today I was baking sugar cookies for our holiday issue.(Yes I know, its early….)
I had a lot of leftover dough and was thinking what can I make with it.
So I looked in my cabinets and I came up with this cookie that has pine nuts, thyme and sea salt on them.
Its such a great match, the sweet sugar cookie with the nuts, salt and thyme was so good.
I will definitely make it again…very soon.
Makes 40 cookies
1 cup sugar
1 Stick Butter (110 g)
1 large egg
2 cups plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
flaky sea salt
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and creamy.
Add the egg and beat it well into the mixture.
Add flour, baking powder and vanilla and mix until combined.
Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before use.
Roll out to 1/8-inch thickness on a floured surface.
Cut out round cookies and transfer to a parchment-paper-covered baking tray.
Top each cookie with some pine nuts, press them down gently so that they sift in the cookie.
Top with a little thyme and sea salt.
Bake for about 8 to 10 minutes, or until just golden.
Cool on a wire rack.
Store in a airtight container .
