  • 135 g butter 4.2 oz
  • 225 g flour 8.8 oz
  • 90 g of sugar 3.5 oz
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 grated orange peel


  • Butter and flour are mixed together before joining the eggs.
  • Add softened butter, salt, and orange zest to the flour and mix.
  • Once you have this crumbled dough add all the sugar and start to knead.
  • Add the egg, previously broken in a bowl, and beat the whites and yolk until it becomes one.
  • Knead the dough for a few minutes and when it reaches nice consistency, create a ball.
  • Put the ball in plastic wrap and let it sit in the refrigerator for at least 1hr.
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F).
  • Remove the dough from the refrigerator and roll it out on a lightly floured surface to a thickness of 1/4″.
  • Using a 2.5-Inch Round Stainless Steel Cutter, mold the dough.
  • Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
