Recipe Crispy biscuits with cinnamon

Christmas cookies I always thought thatCrispy biscuits can be obtained only due to the presence of a significant amount of butter or fat in the dough. It turns out that "crunchiness" can give a significant amount of yolks. Cookies from the specified number of ingredients are not very much, so on the eve of the holidays it is better to make a double portion (I all ate very quickly even without glaze)!

  • Wheat Flour 1 tbsp.
  • Vodka 5 ml
  • Baking Powder 0.5 tsp.
  • Orange 1 pc.
  • Cinnamon ground 0.5 tsp.
  • Butter 20 g
  • Eggs chicken 2 pcs.
  • Sugar powder 0.25 tbsp.
  • Sugar powder 200 g
  • Eggs chicken 1 pc.
  • Lemon 0.5 pcs.
  • Step 1 For the preparation of cookies will need flour, sugar powder, eggs, butter, cinnamon, orange (peel), lemon (juice), baking powder and vodka (or cognac).
  • Step 2 Separate the proteins from the yolks. Mix the yolks with butter and sugar powder.
  • Step 3 Add 2/3 cups of flour, cinnamon, baking powder, vodka and 1 tbsp. L. Orange peel. Knead the dough.
  • Step 4 Pour the remaining flour onto the work surface and mix it into the dough. Put the dough for 30 minutes in the refrigerator.
  • Step 5 Roll the dough into a layer 2-3 mm thick and cut out the shape or the patterns of the biscuits. Put on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
  • Step 6 Bake for 10 minutes in a preheated oven to 160 ° C until light brown. Finished cookies to cool.
  • Step 7 For the glaze, whip the protein into a strong foam.
  • Step 8 Add a powder of sugar by a teaspoonful. When the mass becomes thick and shiny, add the juice of half a lemon. Once again, shake well. If desired, you can add food colorings (I add a little cherry jam, the result is a gently pink color).
  • Step 9 Apply the glaze to the biscuits and dry for 15 minutes in a slightly heated oven (I turned on the ventilation mode and set the temperature at 50 ° C).
