Vanilla biscuits (snowman)

Lately my trains are always late and I find myself waiting and waiting together with my daughter on the platform. One evening, she was bored and we had a walk around the station. It was the perfect moment for Irina to put her eyes on a vending machine with chocolates and biscuits. As you can imagine, I faced a real show to convince my 2 years old daughter that those were not good for her. And I made a promise to her: "mama will make you some biscuits at home !" This kind of promise you cannot fail and I have taken a very simple recipe and made vanilla biscuits for my daughter. More, we had such a nice time together making these snowmen shapes. My daughter made herself some of the biscuits too and I am very proud of her!

The resulting biscuits are amazing, they are simply melting into your mouth and the flavor of vanilla gives you the desire to want more and more.

  • 250g butter (room temperature)
  • 500g all purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 100g vanilla sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence

  1. With a sanding mixer, mix the eggs, sugar and butter.
  2. Add flour and mix everything well.
  3. Place the dough covered in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.
  4. Stretch the dough to 0.5cm thick.
  5. Cut the biscuits using a snowman shape (or any shape you like).
  6. Lay the biscuits on 3 silicon sheets on different trays.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven at 180ºC for 25 minutes.

Even if my daughter enjoyed a lot these biscuits she still face the temptation from the station ... you know how it is ... those ones from the machine have more shiny package .... so I am still working on this subject with my daughter to change her mind :D
