1.6 cups flour (7 oz or 200 g)
1/2 cup sugar (3½ oz or 100 g)
scant 1/2 cup salted butter (3½ oz or 100 g)
2 egg yolks
For Decoration
Icing sugar
Colored sugar
Icing (icing sugar and egg white)

Step 1

Place flour, sugar and butter into a food processor and process until fine. Add egg yolk and process until combined. Cover mixture and let sit overnight.

Step 2

Roll mixture out and cut with cookie cutters into your favorite shapes.

Step 3

To put candy in the cookies, use a small cutter to cut holes in the cookies. For jam tarts, use the leftover pieces removed from candy cookies as the lids of the tarts.

Step 4

Cook for 20–30 minutes at 360°F (180°C). For candy cookies, place candy into the holes after 15 minutes.

Step 5

When the cookies have cooled, dust with icing sugar or use the icing as a glue to attach decorations such as colored sugar or crushed candy.
