The Holiday season is approaching fast and we know how you love to have your bambinos around for 45 days non stop! Before that intense moment, please find our idea of a gourmet gift they could offer to their mistress.
Alright ladies, bear in mind that mistress has seen them more than you have, spent colossal amount of time helping them deal with many issues, scolded them for their chinoiseries, fed them snack because you had forgotten, but mostly taught them billions of useful things.
Because all teachers love cakes, here is very easy recipe for shortbread biscuit !
Ingredients for shortbread: 200gr of flour - 130 gr of powdered sugar - 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar - 1 teaspoon of baking powder - 1 pinch of salt - 125 gr of salted butter - 1 egg + 1 egg yolk.
Preparation: in a bowl, mix flour, sugar, vanilla sugar, baking powder and a pinch of salt. Add the butter (previously cut into small cubes, preferably at room temperature). Mix until you get sandy texture.
Add the egg and knead quickly with a whisk or hand until you get a compact ball. Let the dough rest for a full hour in the refrigerator.
Roll out the dough at 5mm on a floured plan. Cut out the biscuit with a heart shaped (or whatever shape you like) cookie cutter, or with the top of a glass. Brush the patties with a mixture of egg yolk and a bit of water. Finally cook for 8-10 minutes on a plaque - oven at 200 ° C. Enjoy !
Thank you Mistress !
