I’ve found these buttons in my living room near the Christmas tree… I think Santa came too early and lost something from his jacket!
For the shortcrust pastry:
– 125g of butter
– 2 egg yolks
– 250g of flour
– 100g of granulated sugar
– 1 pinch of salt
– 1 tsp of cinnamon
– lemon zest
Put all the ingredients in a food processor and mix until you obtain a dough ball.
Put the dough in the fridge for around 30 minutes. After that roll it out on a floured surface.
Take two round baking moulds with different diameters, cut out your biscuits and form four holes in the middle (I used a chopstick).
Preheat the oven to 175° C (347° F). Put your biscuits in the oven and bake for around 13 minutes or until golden on top.
Pass a ribbon trough the holes and here you have your delicious button biscuits, a perfect Christmas baking idea!
Have a sweet Christmas time!!
