INGREDIENTS for about 20 pieces

2 egg yolks
85 g (3 oz) golden caster sugar
85 g (3 oz) unsalted butter, softened
1 tbs baking powder
140 g (5 oz) plain flour
1 pinch of salt

In a bowl whisk the egg yolks and sugar until fluffy. Then mix the butter. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt and then add to the mixture until obtaining a smooth dough.

Turn the dough out on a floured surface and shape a 3 cm- diameter sausage. Roll it in baking paper and to freeze for around 1 hour.

Slice the dough in 10-15 mm thick rounds and place on a baking sheet, leaving space between them as they will expand while cooking.

Preheat the oven to 180 °C (350 °F).

Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until slightly golden. Leave the biscuits to cool.

Serve with dusting sugar.
