Ingredients:
  • 250 g soft flour, plus extra for dusting and rolling
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 75 g sugar
  • 1 sachet of vanilla sugar
  • 1 egg (M)
  • 125 g cold butter
  • Icing sugar, lemon juice and sugar pearls to decorate

For: 20 pieces
Preparation time: 25 minutes
Baking time: 10-12 minutes
Resting time: 2 hours

Preparation:
  • Rub the flour, baking powder, sugar, vanilla sugar, egg and butter with your fingertips and knead into a smooth dough. Wrap in cling film and leave to rest for approx. 1.5 hours in the refrigerator.
  • Pre-heat the oven to 190 °C top/bottom heat and line a baking tray with baking paper. Roll out the dough to about 5 mm thick on a lightly floured surface and cut out 20 snowflakes (8 cm).
  • Arrange the snowflakes on a baking tray, leaving some space between them, and bake for 10-12 minutes until they start to get some colour. Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely on a cooling rack.
  • To make the sugar icing, mix the icing sugar and lemon juice together until firm. Decorate the biscuits with the sugar icing and sugar pearls.
