Snowflake Sables

I love to bake Christmas cookies, so you can bake this ones or in other shapes

1-1/4 cups all purpose flour
 pinch of salt
1/4 cup of sugar
 1/2finely ground almonds
 1/3cup butter,softened
 2egg yolks
 powder sugar with a few drops of lemon juice some drops of evaporated milk, food coloring and sugar crystals and colored dragees.

How to:
Grease several baking sheets with butter or lined paper
Stir flour, salt and sugar in medium size bowl
 mix in almonds
Cut in butter until mixture resembles fine bread crumbs.
Add egg yolks and mix to form a soft dough.
Roll out dough on a floured surface, using a snowflake cookie cutter, cut out the figures.
Place slightly apart
Refrigerate unbaked for 30 minutes
Preheat oven to 350F,
Bake snowflake sables for 15 to 20 min or until light brown.
Remove, when cool, decorate with a pipe and the colored sugar icing and sprinkle sugar crystals and dragees.


If you don´t have a snowflake mold, you can cut circles and if you have a decoration snowflake just push it in order to get the figure in the circle, that´s what I did.
