Special sable biscuits


by: Jasmina

Spooned biscuits were originally round shaped. They took the name "spooned" biscuits by the fact that they were shaped and laid on the baking tray using a spoon. They definitively took their modern, slender shape in the XIX century.

1.  Half an hour before you need it, take the butter out of the fridge.

2.  Mix the Hour, baking powder, salt and corn starch in a bowl.

3.  Put the butter into a mixer with a paddle attachment and mix. When soft, add the confectioner's sugar and keep mixing until the mixture turns pale. Add the egg yolks and mix in briefly. Add the flour mixture and continue to mix until it is almost incorporated.

4.  Spread the mixture in a flat tray., about 3% inch deep, and leave in the fridge for about 5 hours until the mixture sets.

5.  A good half hour before you are ready to bake, preheat the oven to 34O°F and line a baking sheet with waxed paper. With a cookie cutter about 1 inch in diameter, cut the mixture out into round biscuits and arrange on the lined baking sheet.

6.  Bake the biscuits for 13 minutes, until golden and slightly puffed. Leave to cool (if you like, while they're still warm, you can use the same cutter to neaten and trim the biscuits into more perfect rounds).
