2 HR 0 MIN


160 g, icing
250 g
Vanilla extract
1 pod
1 each
All purpose flour
350 g
Egg yolks
4 each
Pearl sugar

Step 01

Mix the icing sugar, butter, vanilla seeds, lemon zest, sieved flour and two egg yolks and quickly work to a dough.

Step 02

Wrap in foil or clingfilm and allow to rest in the refrigerator for 1 hour. 

Step 03

Preheat the oven to 180°C (with fan). Line a baking tray with baking parchment. Divide the dough into four pieces and roll out one of the pieces to a thickness of approximately 3 mm. Cut out the cookies with the form you prefer. 

Step 04

Chill the other pieces of dough until you are ready to roll them out. Mix the remaining egg yolks with 2-3 tbsp water and brush the biscuits with the mixture. Sprinkle with pearl sugar. Repeat with all the pieces of dough.

Step 05

Bake in the preheated oven (middle shelf) for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown, then cool on a cake rack. 

Step 06

Using two different sized cutters cut out fluted or flower-shaped biscuits (approximately 6 cm in diameter), then cut out a plain hole in the middle. Place the rings on the baking tray.

Step 07

After you baked all the biscuits, tie them together in fours (or more) with ribbons.
