Butter and Grana Padano christmas biscuits


. Difficulty: Easy . Serves: 4/6 people . Preparation time: 1 hour and 30 minutes . Anniversary: Christmas


200 g Grana Padano
200 g flour 00
200 g salty butter
1 egg
Sesame seeds
Poppy seeds
Salt & pepper


In a bowl, mix the soft butter with the flour and the finely grated Grana Padano.
Mix first with a fork and then knead by hand, until the dough is nice and smooth. Form the dough into a ball, cover with cling film and let it rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Roll out the dough with a rolling pin and cut out the biscuits with a star-shaped pastry ring and arrange them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
Make a small hole on one of the tips of the stars with toothpicks, leaving them in whilst backing to prevent the holes from closing, brush the biscuits with egg wash and decorate with sesame or poppy seeds.
Bake the shortbreads in a preheated oven at 180 degrees for 15-20 minutes, until golden.
As soon as they have cooled down, thread the cord on each biscuit and hang them on the Christmas tree.
