Crispy cookies

This recipe for shortbread cookies is my secret family recipe that I would like to share with you. Definitely, they are the perfect addition to your morning coffee. They are incredibly crumbly, with a delicate flavor of vanilla and powdered sugar.



number of servings
  • 250 g Flours Added to
  • 100 g Icing sugar Added to
  • 200 g butter Added to
  • 2 pcs Yolks Added to
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract Added to
  • pinch of salt Added to


30 min.
1. Step

In a bowl, mix flour with powdered sugar and a pinch of salt. Tip: try to have all the ingredients at room temperature, this will make the dough more elastic and easier to knead.

2. Step

Add the chopped butter and egg yolks to the dry mixture, followed by vanilla extract. Knead the dough into a smooth mass. My tip: don't knead the dough for too long to avoid it hardening too much.

3. Step

Form a ball from the dough, wrap it in cling film and put it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Such a cool break will allow the dough to set properly and make it easier to roll out.

4. Step

After this time, roll out the dough to a thickness of about 1 cm and punch out any shapes.

5. Step

Place the cut out cookies on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Tip: remember to leave adequate gaps between the cookies, as they may expand a bit during baking.

6. Step

Bake the cookies in a preheated to 180 degrees Celsius oven for about 10-12 minutes, until they begin to gently brown on the edges.

7. Step

Cool the finished cookies and then sprinkle with powdered sugar. Enjoy your meal!
