Tasty Tuesday - Beer Cookies

Beer Cookies

  • 17 ounce/500 gr flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 cup sunflower oil
  • 1 cup beer
  • powder sugar 
  • vanilla powder

  1. Combine flour, baking soda, oil and beer in a mixing bowl
  2. Mix together well to make a dough. Add more flour as needed (personally I added about 7 ounce/200 gr more)
  3. Keep kneading the dough as long as it takes until it is nice and smooth (you should know that it will always seem a little bit oily but don't over-do with the flower)
  4. Roll out the dough to 1/2 inch thickness
  5. Cut out the cookies with a small round cookie cutter or use a shot glass
  6. Place them in a baking dish (with no butter or wax paper) and bake them on 390F/200C until they are golden brownish on both sides.
  7. Mix the powder sugar and the vanilla powder in a big bowl, drop the ready cookies in while still warm and cover them with the sugar
