This recipe is very easy and you can customize it to your taste.
Instead of lemon, use oranges or mandarins. Change the tonka bean with cinnamon, vanilla, chocolate chips or coconut flour.
The tonka bean is a special addition which adds a sweet, spicy and almond flavour to your biscuits.
First we cut the butter into cubes and leave it outside the fridge to keep it at an ambient temperature.
In a bowl, we add all the ingredients to create the dough: flour, sugar, butter, eggs, lemon peels, tonka bean and salt.
Then we knead together by hand or with the help of a kitchen robot and put it in the fridge for about an hour (we form a ball and cover it with a wrap).
The result obtained can be used also as a pastry for a cake.
Then we roll out the dough with a rolling pin dusted with flour on a baking paper, and we cut the biscuits.
We cook them in a precooked oven for about 15-20 minutes at a temperature of 180 °C.
We dust the biscuits with the powdered sugar and serve for breakfast or for a tea break.
