This post may be coming a little late, but well, better late than never 😉
While I was at my parents house in Spain, over the holidays, I wanted to do something nice for them since every time I’m there they do everything for me, it’s like being in a Hotel just, 1 million times better. It was the first time in my life that I baked biscuits and if you ask me, it went really well 😀
I chose this kind of german piped butter based biscuits, first because I like butter biscuits and second, they are easier to make, since you don’t have to knead and roll out the dough for cutting out a shape.
Ingredients for arround 60 biscuits
- 320 gr flour
- 2 L eggs or 120 gr eggs
- 250 gr butter
- 120 gr confectioners’ sugar
- 2 vanilla pods
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 pinch of salt
Heat up your oven at 180ºC.
In a bowl, first combine the soft butter, confectioners’ sugar and the vanilla pulp to a fluffy mixture.
In another bowl, mix the flour with the baking powder and the salt.
Break the eggs into another bowl and just mix them roughly. Pour them step by step, and not all at once, into the Buttery mixture and keep on stirring with the whisk or with your hand mixer on a slow number.
Add the flour mix and mix it to a smooth pastry, don’t over mix it!
Grab a piping bag, place a nr. 10 star nozzle into it and fill your bag with the pastry. Put a baking paper over your baking tray. Squirt the dough into different shapes onto the tray (I, C, S, that’s up to you!), don’t forget to keep some space between them.
Place them in the oven for aprox. 10 minutes. When done, let them cool down.
You can decorate them with some dark molten chocolate just by dipping the ends into it, I didn’t have the time but that would make them just perfect 🙂
My cousin said they were the BEST biscuits he’d EVER tried, I hope you like them too 😉
