White Christmas snowflake biscuits

For: 20 pieces
Preparation time: 25 minutes
Baking time: 10-12 minutes
Resting time: 2 hours


1. Rub the flour, baking powder, sugar, vanilla sugar, egg and butter with your fingertips and knead into a smooth dough. Wrap in cling film and leave to rest for approx. 1.5 hours in the refrigerator.

2. Pre-heat the oven to 190 °C top/bottom heat and line a baking tray with baking paper. Roll out the dough to about 5 mm thick on a lightly floured surface and cut out 20 snowflakes (8 cm).

3. Arrange the snowflakes on a baking tray, leaving some space between them, and bake for 10-12 minutes until they start to get some colour. Remove from the oven and leave to cool completely on a cooling rack.

4. To make the sugar icing, mix the icing sugar and lemon juice together until firm. Decorate the biscuits with the sugar icing and sugar pearls.
