Recipe sent by Virginia


  • 400 gr. all-purpose flour (type 00)
  • 240 gr. sugar
  • 200 gr. butter
  • 1 whole egg
  • 2 egg yolks
  • grated zest of 1 orange
  • 3 tablespoons Limmi lemon juice
  • 1 pinch of salt


Arrange the four in a mound on a pastry board, make a space in the centre and little by little add all ingredients. Knead to evenly distribute all ingredients, and shape the dough into a ball.
Cover the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for ½ hour.
Roll the dough to a thickness of about 1 cm with a rolling pin. Cut cookies out of the dough with a round cutter and lay them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Cook for 15 minutes at 180° C.
