I perfected this recipe while searching for homemade toddler butter biscuits for the crust of a cake with yoghurt. I`ve reduced the proportion and replaced the sugar with dates so that I could offer them to my daughter with a clear conscience. The result surpassed my expectations and I will certainly prepare them again. They are great for an afternoon snack, and also the dates give enough sweetness so the biscuits will appeal to adults as well.
Toddler butter biscuits
What you`ll need:
200 grams flour
125 grams butter, melted
2 egg yolks (or 1 whole egg if your child is 1 year and older)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 pack of vanilla sugar
a pinch of salt
How to cook it:
Preheat the oven to 190°. Prepare a baking tin with baking paper.
Stir the dry ingredients and then add the melted butter. Blend the dates with the yolks or egg and add to the butter mixture.
Mix everything up into smooth dough, then wrap in foil and leave it in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, take the dough out and make little balls as big as a walnut and flatten them on your palms. Transfer to the tin and bake in the oven for about 10 minutes. Check if they are ready with a toothpick. Cool them down on a wire rack.
