TM 5Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!
Preheat oven to 190C (fan forced oven)
Place flour, sugar, chopped butter, egg, water and vanilla in TM jug - mix 30 seconds on speed 5.
Turn out pastry onto a silicone mat or baking paper and press together to combine and shape into a smooth shape.
Wrap in silicone mat or cling film and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes
When chilled, remove from fridge and place on floured bench or silicone mat. Cover with a second mat or a piece of baking paper.
Roll out until 1-2 mm thick
Using a cutter, cut out shapes and place on baking paper lined oven tray.
Bake until golden brown (which will depend on thickness of cookies, but generally between 8-12 minutes
These cookies were developed to have granules of sugar visible which add a nice texture and crunch. If you prefer, you can mill the sugar first on speed 10 for 5-10 seconds, and then proceed with step 1.
Once mixed, pastry should combine and hold together when pressed between fingers. It it doesn't, add a little more water and knead for a few more seconds.
If, after chilling in refrigerator, the pastry is too sticky to easily roll, sprinkle with a little flour (both sides) until it is easy to work with.
The thinner the cookies, the quicker they will cook, and the crisper they will be after baking.
Additional flavourings such as cinnamon, ground ginger, orange or lemon zest, etc, could be added to the mix to created different variations.
The number of cookies made will depend on the size of the cutters used! If using a little teddy cutter, you will make many more than the suggested 40!
