      Recipe is created for
      TM 5
      Please 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!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees and line a cookie tray with baking paper.
  2. Add all dry ingredients to TM and mix on speed 4 for 10 seconds, set aside.
  3. Add the butter to TM, and melt speed 1, 60 seconds 90 degrees.

  4. Add in vanilla and milk and mix speed 2, 10 seconds.

  5. Add dry ingredients that were set aside into TM with wet ingredients and and mix speed 3, 20 seconds or until well combined.

  6. Remove mix from TM and form balls or roll out (not too thin), then use a cookie cutter to make shapes. To make soft cookies, ensure the dough is very cold by setting aside on tray in fridge for at least 30 minutes before adding to oven. 

  7. Bake in a 160c preheated oven for 9 minutes. They will look very underdone when you take them out, but that’s normal. Just let them cool on a rack for 5 minutes before touching.

  8. Icing the Biscuits
  9. Place butterfly in a cleaned, dry TM and add egg whites.

  10. Beat for 3 minutes, 50 degrees, speed 4.

  11. Continue at spped 4 and gradually add icing sugar through hole in lid.

  12. Add food colouring if desired and mix at speed 4 until colour is uniform.

  13. Pour icing into a sandwich zip lock bag and snip off bottom corner and pipe the icing onto cooled biscuits.

  14. Sprinkle with hundreds and thousands and leave to set. These cookies will keep at least four days, in a sealed plastic container.
