- 6 egg yolks, lightly beaten
- 1 tbsp milk
- 2 cups All-purpose flour
- generous 3/4 cup superfine sugar
- pinch of salt
- 1 cup butter at room temp. cut into small pieces
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a baking sheet. Mix 1 tbsp of egg yolks
with the milk for glaze and set aside. Mix the eggs, sugar and butter
and mix them until smooth and creamy.
Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl. Make a well and pour the
egg mixture and
blend to form a sticky dough
In a well floured surface, roll out the dough into 1/3 inch thickness
and cut into circles using 3 inch cookie cutters.
If you are having trouble rolling it out, then divide the dough into
small portions, pat them out with your fingertips to the desired
and then cut it using cookie cutters.
Place them on the baking sheet and brush with the egg glaze.
You can make patterns on top and bake them as they are for about
15-20 minutes until golden.
Cool completely and enjoy! This esp tastes heavenly with a glass of
milk – try it for yourself.
