  2. Then combine the flour and sugar in a bowl and perfume with the vanilla extract (or the seeds taken from a berry).
  3. Add the butter cut into pieces, very cold from the refrigerator, and knead with your fingertips until the mixture is crumbled.
  4. At this point add the eggs and finish kneading rather quickly, to form a dough . Wrap it in plastic wrap and let it rest in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours .
  5. Then roll it out until it reaches half a centimeter thick, with the help of two sheets of parchment paper.
  6. With the star-shaped molds of increasing size, obtain as many series as possible in scale.
  7. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 180 ° C for 12 minutes.
  8. Once cold, assemble the cookies in the shape of a Christmas tree with the help of the icing . To prepare it, mix the icing sugar with the lemon juice, then let a few drops run into the center of each biscuit. Create the turret, offsetting the tips of the stars and that’s it.
