500g common wheat “00” flour
4 egg yolks
1 pinch salt
For tastier dough, we suggest using a mix of common wheat “00” flour and wholemeal flour. You can replace the butter with margarine.
STEP 1 - THE DOUGH
Pour the flour into a bowl and mix it with the sugar and a pinch of salt. Add the egg yolks and mix the dough with a fork. Keep mixing the dough, and at the same time add the butter that you previously melted in a water bath, and the milk. Continue kneading the dough with your hands until it is completely smooth and soft; then cut it into four pieces.
STEP 2 - COOKIES
Fill the Biscuits machine with a piece of dough and choose one of the 20 shapes available. Choose the biscuit size you want by turning the adjustment knob under the lever. Lower the lever a few times until the dough comes out evenly from the holes of the extruder. Rest Biscuits directly on the clean baking tray, without adding butter or parchment paper. Push the lever down and lift Biscuits from the tray. The biscuit will be attached to the surface.
STEP 3 - BAKING
Preheat the oven to about 180°C (= 350°F). Insert the tray with the biscuits for about 20 minutes. When the biscuits are baked, remove them from the baking tray and decorate them as you wish.
