  • flour - 1 and 2/3 cups
  • sugar - 1/2 cup
  • butter - 4.4 oz (125 g)
  • eggs - 1
  • salt - 1/3 tsp.
  • baking powder - 1/3 tsp.
  • cinnamon - 1/2 tsp.

  • powdered sugar - to sift on top

How to cook

Sift the flour with a pinch of salt, the baking powder and half a teaspoon of cinnamon.

Add the egg, sugar and butter cut in small pieces.

Grate orange zest of one orange to add flavour.

Knead a soft dough. Make a ball, cover it in cling film and let it rest in the fridge for an hour.

Lay a sheet of parchment paper on a baking tray. Take the dough out of the fridge and form small balls, as big as a walnut.

Roll out and fold each piece of dough to create small pretzel shaped cookies.

Press them gently with your hand.

Bake the cookies in a preheated oven to 356°F (180 degrees) for around 10 minutes.

Take them out of the oven and cool them on a cooling rack, then sift with powdered sugar abundantly.

You can preserve the cookies in a cookie jar until Christmas!

Happy Holidays!
