How to prepare Yogurt cookies
To prepare these yogurt cookies, start by placing the flour 1, salt 2 and baking powder for desserts 3 in a bowl.
Now add the sugar 4 and the egg 5. Stir with a spatula 6
and add the yogurt 7. Stir some more, add the sunflower oil 8 and continue mixing the ingredients together. Add the seeds from one vanilla pod 9,
the lemon zest 10, and knead with your hands 11 to obtain a homogeneous dough 12.
Now take around 1 oz of dough 13, roll it out and join both tips to create a small donut 15.
Place the cookies onto a tray lined with parchment paper, a few inches apart from each other as they will grow in size when baked 16. Bake in a static oven at 355°F (180°C) for around 22 minutes. Remove from the oven 17 and leave to cool before arranging them on a plate. Sprinkle with the icing sugar and serve 18.
Once baked, yogurt cookies can be stored in a tin box for 3-4 days at most.
Add some chocolate drops to the dough! Alternatively, you could dip half of each cookie in some melted chocolate for an even more delicious version!
