  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon vegetal color additive, green
  • 1 cup White chocolate, chopped, to decorate

Preheat oven to 170 ° C (338F)
For the cookie dough, beat the butter with the sugar until it integrates, add the egg, the yolk and beat until incorporated. Add the essence of vanilla, flour and salt, continue beating until the ingredients are incorporated.
Remove the dough from the blender and divide it into two parts. Reserve the part with natural color and to the other half add green vegetable coloring to paint. Rest the two doughs in the refrigerator for 40 minutes until they are firm, wrapped in non-stick plastic.
On a smooth and floured surface, spread the dough for the green cookies to 3 mm thick, with the help of a short tree cutter and reserve. Extends the natural colored dough and cut circles larger than the tree. Hollow out the center of the circles with the same tree cutter and insert the green trees in the space.
Arrange the cookies in a tray with wax paper and refrigerate again until they are firm. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, remove from the oven and cool.
In a bowl place the white chocolate and melt in the microwave in 30 seconds, moving constantly so it does not burn. Cover the edges of the cookies in the white chocolate, refrigerate a few seconds and stick the chocolate chips to the cookie, refrigerate again so that it solidifies completely.

Serve the cookies and accompany with milk and coffee.


Try not to beat the butter too much, just add the sugar. Remember that before baking cookies it is very important to freeze the dough, so they will not lose their shape in the oven and will not expand too much. So that the Christmas chocolate chips sticks, be sure the white chocolate is not so hot, you can refrigerate slightly so that it solidifies lightly and adhere itself to the cookie.
