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 egg
  • glaze
  • 1 yolk

Directions

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

These are very tasty cookies and such a clever way to present them. Mine took a little longer to cook, perhaps my layers were too thick. Next time I will make my crown wider around the bowl.
