They are easy to make, minimal ingredients needed and fun to decorate.
Ingredients for the cookies:
8oz butter, room temperature
3 egg yolks
1/2tsp vanilla extract
Cream the butter and sugar for 5 minutes at medium speed with an electric mixer.
Add the egg yolks and vanilla and mix until blended.
Slowly add the flour and mix on a low speed.
Pipe dough into rosettes using a star tube nozzle #7 onto a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper
I usually also do some in a straight line, roughly 2 inches long.
Bake at 200 degrees C for 8-10 minutes.
Now the fun part, decorating the cookies.
I usually have a bowl of melted white and milk chocolate, a bowl of crushed hazlenutes & pistachio and shredded coconut. Make sure you do not blitz the nuts as this will make them to dusty.
Now simply dip a biscuit into one of the chocolates and then your choice or choices of toppings.
