Feen Spitzen – ein besonderes Weihnachtskekse Rezep
This is a delicious and unique Christmas cookie recipe for amazing light and airy Fairy Kisses Cookies. Sugar cookie base – Candy – Meringue on top. Most perfect for that special holiday season of the year and gone before you can count to 10 😉 .
Every year my kids start to celebrate their favourite season of the year earlier and earlier. This year though my boy already started with his favourite Christmas songs in August and Christmas movies have been watched by us since September. I know the movie “Kevin alone at home” by heart now 😉 .
Christmas Cookie recipes – that’s what I live for during the season 😉
But what I love the most about that most beloved festive holiday season is the smell of freshly baked Christmas cookies. All those wonderful spices and smells flowing through the house, that’s what Christmas is all about for me. I could forget myself in my kitchen, kneading up a festive yeasty deliciousness, preparing all the different doughs for at least 20 different Christmas cookies recipes. Yes, Im definitely a carb lover. And no I don’t care. Not during my favourite season 😉 .
Fairy Kisses Cookies – what to expect from my favorite Christmas cookies recipe
First of all, I didn’t invent that Christmas cookie recipe nor the name. I found that recipe about 16 years ago, yes I’m already that old ;-), in a baking magazine.
So what is that cookie all about:
That tiny, beautiful, gorgeous cookie has a simple sugar cookie recipe base. Then there is that super delicious “Toffifee” candy, which is sweet and delicious already on its own. And finally, all that goodness is topped with an airy Pavlova-like meringue.
That cookie gets baked for about 15 min; that’s when the oven works its magic ;-). The heat melts that candy, and the caramel and chocolate become that super ooey gooey mess, and that meringue becomes that crisp and airy top but is still a little chewy inside.
When I want to be super fancy I’m dusting the cookies with some edible gold dust❤️.
And?!? Hope you are drooling right now!
Fairy Kisses are on my Christmas cookies baking list every year and every year I have to bake at least about 2 batches of them. It’s one of my favourite holiday recipes and it sweetens up the waiting for my family and I until Christmas eve <3.
Sweet fairy kisses and warm cookie hugs
Update: The cookies may seem under baked when they come right out of the oven. The sugar cookie base isn’t crisp but very soft but that’s alright. When that candy melts it seeps a little bit into the sugar cookie dough and it makes that cookie chewy and not crisp. Chewy base and crispy meringue cloud .
