Le petit-beurre: Recipe

October 16, 2017

A few years ago, my dear sister had a fantastic Christmas present idea, she gave me a Larousse Petits-beurre kit with a mini recipe book, a cookie cutter and a stamp that says 'Homemade' en français. A rainy Sunday in was the perfect opportunity for me to try these babies out  and I chose to make vanilla ones. 


This is what they looked like before baking.


If you want to give it a go, this is what you need to do.


To make about 50 biscuits, you need: 200 g sugar, 200 g salted butter, 12.5 cl water, 500 g plain flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and a few drops of vanilla extract.


Step 1: Place butter, water and sugar in a saucepan, bring to a boil. Leave to cool for 20 minutes.


Step 2: In a bowl, mix flour, nuts and baking powder. Add the cooled down liquid.


Step 3: Mix with a wooden spoon first then with hands.


Step 4: Place the dough in cling film, then in the fridge for 3 hours.


Step 5: Roll out the dough with a bit of flour so it doesn't stick and shape out of the biscuits with cutter.


Step 6: Place baking paper on a baking tray, space out the biscuits on it then bake for 10-12 minute in a preheated oven (180 degrees).


You can keep them for a few days in a biscuit tin.
