How to make cookies for Christmas and New Year

Preheat the oven to 180 ° C and cover 2 baking sheets with parchment. Combine flour, butter, sugar, zest and cinnamon in a bowl. Rub your hands into crumbs.
Add milk and knead soft dough. Wrap it in wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Arrange the sweets by color in plastic bags. Release air and tightly close or tie the bags, then chop the contents with a rolling pin.
Roll out the dough on a flour-dusted surface into a 1 cm thick layer. With large tins, cut out the curly cookie bases from the dough and transfer to parchment. Then, in the middle of each cookie, make a window using small molds.
Pour in the windows pieces of sweets (a little, otherwise the filling will spread over the liver). Then, using a cocktail skewer, make a hole in the top of each cookie so that you can put a ribbon in it and hang it on a Christmas tree. Scraps of dough can be blind again, rolled out and more cookies made, but then you will need more sweets. The cut out center of the cookie can also be baked and eaten in the process of decorating the Christmas tree..

Bon Appetit! And happy new year!
