Preparation for the recipe of the puzzle cookies

  1. Start by preparing the shortcrust pastry by arranging the flour in a heap and placing the other ingredients in the center, namely the 2 eggs, sugar, lemon zest, baking soda and chopped butter.
  2. Begin to mix everything until you get a rather compact dough that should be left to rest, covered with cling film, for about an hour.
  3. After this time, roll out the pastry with the help of a rolling pin and cut out the puzzle shapes with the mold.
  4. Place the biscuits on a baking sheet with parchment paper to ensure that they do not stick.
  5. Bake in a preheated convection oven at 180 ° C and cook for at least 15 minutes. The puzzle cookies will be ready when the edges begin to rise and turn golden brown.
  6. As soon as they are ready, take them out of the oven and always let them cool on the pan.
  7. Now, move on to the decoration by rolling out the sugar paste thinly and cutting it out with the same shapes used for the biscuits;
  8. Make an icing with a tablespoon of water and icing sugar and use it to brush the cookies and make the decorations adhere.
  9. Let the icing rest and harden and your cookies will be ready.
