Saying goodbye to dear friends is never easy – but at least Kathrin (from Kathrin’s Cup of Tea) and I had a wonderful baking time before it came to that. A bit more than a week ago, she left Switzerland for a a semester at the University of Manchester…and we had absolutely wanted to bake together before she left!

So, together, we made these adorable (if not necessarily perfect) Harry Potter Cookies and Orange-Chocolate-Macarons, which we will show you in the next post.

SONY DSCYou can find the recipe for the sugar cookies and Royal Icing here. As a little twist (and to match our lovely macarons) we added a bit of orange zest and juice (only a few drops) to the dough and also to the icing.

The decoration of the cookies is pretty straight-forward. As we could not find all the cookie cutters we would have liked, we drew some of the shapes ourselves. We then simply laid them on the rolled dough and cut the shapes with a knife.

We collected our “extra-shapes” and made a nice little printable for you:Harry Potter Cookies Printable

We wish you loads of fun when making these cookies – and stay tuned for the macarons post!

very tired after nearly 6 hours of baking - but so happy and proud :)
