"Kids love fairy tales, but most of them go crazy for Sweet Christmas Fairy Tale Treats."


  • flour - 2/5 cup (100 g)
  • corn flour - 2/3 cup (160 g) fine
  • lard - 3.5 oz (100 g)
  • sugar - 1/3 cup (85 g)
  • vanilla sugar - 2 tsp (10 g)
  • eggs - 2 Yolks
  • baking soda - 1 pinch
  • baking powder - 1 tsp
  • lemon zest - from 1 medium - sized lemon
  • brandy - 1 tablespoon
  • dulce de leche - for sticking the treats together
  • coconut flakes - for sprinkling, fine

How to cook

1. Beat the lard (at room temperature) with the sugar to a fluffy cream. Add the yolks 1 by 1. Don't add the next one before the previous one is absorbed. Add the vanilla sugar, brandy and finely grated lemon zest - try to make sure you only use the yellow part of the lemon.

2. Sift both flours and add them in lots to the cream, while stirring with a spoon until they're fully absorbed. Finally add the baking soda and baking powder.

3. Form a ball of dough, without kneading, mix just enough to homogenize the ingredients. Put away in the fridge for 15 min.

4. Roll it out into a 1/4″ (0.5 cm) sheet and use a ring or glass that's 1 1/2″ (4 cm) in diameter to cut out circles. You're going to get 24 of them. You'll be sticking them in pairs so that each circle has a partner.

5. Put them in a tray covered with baking paper. If you don't have any, arrange them directly onto the tray, without oiling the surface.

6. Bake in a preheated 356°F (180 °C) oven for 12 min. Don't let them turn too red on top, they need to be more of a whitish color. Let cool a bit and harden.

7. Stick them together in pairs with the dulce de leche and roll the edges in coconut flakes. Sprinkle a little more on top.
