(And if you're still afraid, consider the ingredients of mayonnaise for a second - they're actually all used in sweet cookies too, you see! yeaaah!)
My grandmother is an expert and no matter how many times I try, I'll never get them that right. Maybe that's why I decided to give her mayo cookies my own twist, adding white chocolate on top (the best of ideas - she'd be proud of me). The first time I made them, I accidentally made them according to her original quantities which resulted in the whole kitchen being filled with cookies. Oh, you know, grannies and their recipes...
The quantities are reduced here, you shouldn't be afraid of flooding your kitchen with cookies if you plan to make them. (not that that's a bad thing, it just came unexpectedly to me)
Mayonnaise cookies with white chocolate
100 g mayonnaise
100 g butter, at room temperature
4 dl flour
2 dl sugar
- Mix butter well with sugar, until the mixture becomes fluffier.
- Whisk in mayonnaise and then the egg. Finally add the flour.
- Place the dough into the fridge for 30 minutes.
- Make small balls of the dough between your fingers, place them onto a buttered baking sheet and flatten with a fork.
- Bake at 190C until slightly golden at the edges, about 9 minutes. Let cool.
- Melt white chocolate over a waterbath and decorate the cookies with it. Spread it on top or make other decorations. Let them cool for the chocolate to harden.
