Christmas butter cookies recipe
Delicious and sweet Christmas ring biscuits recipe with icing sugar and butter.
Mix the icing sugar, butter, vanilla seeds, lemon zest, sieved flour and two egg yolks and quickly work to a dough.
Wrap in foil or clingfilm and allow to rest in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
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.
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.
Bake in the preheated oven (middle shelf) for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown, then cool on a cake rack.
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.
After you baked all the biscuits, tie them together in fours (or more) with ribbons.
