Dalek and Sontaran cinnamon cookies (Doctor Who 50th Anniversary celebration recipe)

Extermi-bake! – JD, 5

This week we tested out the Dalek and Sontaran cookie cutters from Lakeland, that we picked up for just £4.99. The results are pretty effective, even without icing.

Here’s the dough recipe we used – it seemed to hold the imprint really well and made 6 Sontarans and 8 Daleks. To give you a sense of size, the Daleks are 11cm tall.

Ingredients

  • 110g unsalted butter, softened
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 1 medium free range egg
  • 270g plain flour
  • 1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Beat the butter, sugar and eggs until fully combined
  2. Mix in the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and bicarbonate of soda until fully combined
  3. Cover the bowl with cling film (saran wrap) and chill for 15 minutes
  4. Preheat the oven to 180C fan assisted
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll out to about 50-70mm thick and cut out the cookie shapes
  6. Grease and lightly flour a baking sheet
  7. Place the cookies on the baking sheet, 1 inch apart and bake for 6-7 minutes, until just beginning to brown
  8. Cool on wire rack

You could, of course, decorate these little Daleks and Sontarans with icing once cool, but I rather like them plain.

We had a go at pushing sugar pearls into one cookie before baking and it’s quite a cute effect, although he’s a little crumblier than the others around the detail…

    These look and sound fantastic, currently baking them now. I just wanted to point out though your instructions and ingredients are totally different? I just replaced the ‘vanilla’ for cinnamon and left the food colouring out. Just thought youd like to know ;)
    Thanks for the recipie x
