Ingredients (Two dozen cookies):
- 125 g butter or margarine
- Sugar 125 g
- Middle egg
- 180 g flour
- A teaspoon of baking powder
- A sprig angelica
- Heat oven gas to 180oC. Bata previously melted butter and sugar until they form a light batter. Pass through a sieve together flour, salt, and baking powder. Beat egg until it turns a thick consistency. Mix a pinch of saffron (a quarter teaspoon approximately) with a little water (a teaspoon) and add to the butter and sugar mixture with the flour and egg, beat it all.
- Cover your hands with flour and knead the dough to form twenty balls. If the mixture is too thin to work it let cool slightly. Place each ball on a piece of angelica and place in a lightly greased metal sheet with oil. Keep the balls in the oven for twenty to twenty five minutes. Let them cool and then store them in a tin box sealing.
