Special Christmas Night Cookies

Start by gathering ingredients for Christmas Cookies: 200g unsalted butter, 50g milk, 100g granulated sugar, 250g cake flour (7-9% protein, not self-rising), 50g almond flour, 2g salt, 1 tbsp vanilla extract. You'll also need appropriate amounts of red food coloring, as well as melted white chocolate and regular chocolate for decoration. Soften the butter adequately for easy cutting, but avoid over-softening. Once softened, mix the butter, sugar, and vanilla extract together before gradually adding milk, stirring until the mixture achieves a light and fluffy consistency. Add in the cake almond flour, and salt, and mix until you reach a uniform dough texture.

Separate the dough into two equal parts, coloring one portion with red food coloring and leaving the other as it is. Equip two piping bags with closed star piping tips, one with the red dough and the other with the uncolored portion. Prepare a baking tray with parchment paper or a mat and preheat your oven to 320℉ (160℃). Squeeze out the dough from the bags onto the prepared baking tray, designing your cookies into festive shapes like cute bears and Christmas hats. Bake them for 20 minutes, and let them cool afterward. Once the cookies have cooled, add your final touches with melted white and regular chocolate for a truly festive look. Enjoy your homemade Christmas Cookies!
