How to make Canestrelli

  1. 1. Place the butter, sugar and vanilla extract in a table top mixer, using a paddle attachment, mix them till soft and fluffy.
  2. 2. Add the sieved egg yolk, lemon zest and mix, continue adding the flour and mix till they form a homogeneous mixture (1-2 minutes).
  3. 3. Divide the dough into two equal halves and rest for 10 minutes and roll them out making 2 inch thick square. Using a flower shaped cutter cut and lay the Canestrelli's on to a baking tray layered with parchment paper.
  4. 4. Bake them at 140°C for 20 minutes. Allow them to cool and generously dust with icing sugar and serve.
My Tip: Note: The Canestrelli dough has to be soft, do not over work the dough, as the gluten develops the short breads will become hard.
