Summer Peach Cookies

Summer baking gets us excited and we encourage you to make these sweet real peach looking cookies!

Ingredients:

  • 200g flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 150g butter
  • 70g white sugar
  • 50g light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2tbsp greek yogurt
  • peach jam
  • 4-6 tbsp milk
  • food colouring – red and yellow
  • 100g granulated white sugar
  • mint leaves, fresh

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 190C.
  2. Whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt.
  3. Cream the butter and sugars in a mixer with a paddle attachment for a minute. Add the egg and vanilla, followed by the greek yogurt. Make sure they’re well mixed.
  4. On a low speed combine the dry mix and the wet creamed mix. Do not overmix.
  5. With a tablespoon scoop out the dough and roll in your hands (oiled beforehand) into a ball and place on a baking sheet. Repeat until all dough is used up.
  6. Bake for 14-15 minute until lightly browned. Let cool completely onto a cooling rack.
  7. Spread a teaspoon of peach jam evenly on the bottom of one cookies and gently press another cookie onto the jamed side to sandwhich them together. Repeat untill all cookies are sandwiched.
  8. Decorate the cookies: Pour 2-3tbsp of milk into two small bowls. Tint one bowl of milk with red food coloring striving for a vibrant pink, then tint the other bowl of milk with yellow food coloring to achieve a vibrant yellow. Using a paint brush randomly paint both sandwiched cookies alterntating between the two colours until you recieve a peach look. (Don’t overdo the colouring as the cookies will become soggy from the milk)
  9. Dip the cookies in sugar to create a slight fuzz look to them in true peach nature. Finish off with a few fresh mint leaves.
  10. Store in an air tight container.
  11. Enjoy!
