Description

Buttery brown sugar cookie dough is accented with lemon for a crisp and fragrant cookie. The dough is shaped into stars then arranged and baked into a ring shape, making for a beautiful and eye-catching centerpiece. This makes for a great dessert to bring to a gathering or make the focus of a dessert table with candle or flower arrangement in the center.

Ingredients

  • 250 grams all-purpose flour
  • 100 grams brown sugar
  • 1 lemon zest
  • 100 grams butter (soft, cut into pieces)
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 eggs
  • glaze
  • 1 yolk

Directions

  1. 1In a medium-sized bowl, mix the flour, sugar and lemon zest.
  2. 2Make a well and put in the butter and lemon juice.
  3. 3Mix the dough between your fingers to obtain a coarse sand texture.
  4. 4Add the egg and work dough lightly: as soon as it is homogeneous, stop kneading.
  5. 5Refrigerate for one hour.
  6. 6Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  7. 7On a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper, place a small bowl upside down in the center.
  8. 8Flour your work surface and roll out the dough to 1/2 cm thickness.
  9. 9Cut stars until there is no more dough.
  10. 10If you have different sized stars, place the largest ones in the base around the bowl.
  11. 11Using a brush, lightly glaze the stars with the watered-down yolk before overlaying a new layer of stars.
  12. 12Once the crown is finished, remove the bowl and bake.
  13. 13Bake for 15-20 minutes.
  14. 14Wait until the crown is cold before handling it.
  15. 15Sprinkle with sugar.
