Breakfast is the moment of the day that I prefer, it's great to start every morning with delicious things and to relax while eating croissants beurre or pains au chocolats... French viennoiserie, I'm crazy for you! The breakfast of this morning was more wonderful for me than normal, and maybe more heavy than usual; indeed I've made some little biscuits using two very special pastry cutters for cup-adorning cookies, which I've found at the Bon Marché here in Paris...
Here's the recipe:
ingredients: 150 g butter, 100 g sugar, 300 g flour, 1 egg, 1 pinch of salt
preparation: cream butter, egg, sugar and flour. Add then then salt. Wrap this dough in cling foil and place in the fridge for at least one hour. Now roll out the pastry in approx. 3 mm thick sheets between two layers of baking foil (it's better to use wooden slats as well - these make it easier to attain an even thickness). Cut out the biscuits and remove the remaining pastry away from the cut-out shapes. Leave the cookies on the baking foil and place on a baking tray. Bake in pre-set hoven (top and bottom heat) at 180 °C for 7-10 minutes. Et voilà, bon appétit!
This French touch to my breakfast gives me the idea to produce a couple of stamp sets in parisian style, while the ever-present mustache - a cult item of last season: one "classic" with the writing "voilà" and another "curly" marked with "bonjour"... you can find them on my etsy!
