Ingredients

80
For the dough
400 grams Pastry flour
200 grams butter
75 grams powdered sugar
2 egg yolks
1 packet Vanilla sugar
For the icing
250 grams powdered sugar
Food coloring (as desired)

Preparation steps

1.

Combine flour, butter, powdered sugar, egg yolks and vanilla sugar, then with your hands knead into a smooth dough. Wrap in foil and chill for 30 minutes.

2.

Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface until about 3-4 mm thin (approximately 1/8 inch), cut out cookies in flower shapes and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, leaving some distance between each cookie, and bake on the center rack of a preheated oven at 200°C (approximately 400°F) for about 10 minutes. Remove and let cool.

3.

Stir the powdered sugar with a little water until a thick icing forms. Divide into portions and dye with the food coloring, if desired. Brush the cookies with the glaze and let dry.
