Who doesn’t like a biscuit or two at the tea time? If you do then stick around and check the easiest recipe for amazingly delicious biscuits. They are so delicate and fragile and they melt in your mouth. And the great thing about them is that you can combine them however you want. You can use nutella, all kind of jams, melted chocolate……
– 125 gr/ 4.40oz unsalted butter
– 250 gr/ 8.80 oz flour
– 100gr/ 3.50 oz icing sugar
– 2 egg yolks
– vanilla extract
– pinch of salt
– more icing/powdered sugar for powdering the baked biscuits
– any kind of jam, nutella, or melted chocolate, whatever you prefer
1. Combine the butter (cut into small pieces) and the flour. When its combined add the sugar, vanilla, egg yolks and the pinch of salt.
2. Use your hand to mix all the ingredients together. You must get a firm elastic dough, but don’t work it too long, be quick because your warm hands may melt the butter quickly. When the dough is ready, shape it into a ball, cover it with film foil, leave it in the fridge to rest for about an hour. If after an hour is still not very firm, put it into freezer for a few minutes.
3. After an hour, roll out the dough on a floury surface, cut the biscuits with your favourite shape. I cut them into stars, then continue to roll out and cut another same amounts of biscuits, but then pierce them in the middle with smaller round object.
4. Put them on a baking tray, bake for about 15 minutes or until the surface is golden at 180°C / 350F. When done, remove from the oven and let them cool.
5. Now take one, spread the jam, make sure its more in the centre of the biscuit and cover with the pierced side of the biscuit. Sprinkle with icing sugar.
Here I used melted chocolate.
