Basil breakfast biscuits


Over the last few months I've been giving myself some gifts. Small things, for goodness sake, summer dresses, prints to frame, some objects for the home but also time. A little for myself but above all for the people from whom, for one reason or another, I have taken it away by first taking away the pleasure of being together. A phone call, a message and a lunch or dinner together with those close to me. Every time this happens I go home with a slightly stupid face and a big smile from side to side. The even more beautiful thing about all this is the feeling of well-being I get from it, a great sense of gratitude.

When I feel like this I would like to give the same feeling to everyone around me, without explaining too much. In those moments I would like to have time to bake biscuits for everyone, because you know, biscuits are always popular, you just need to guess the right combination. These basil flavored biscuits I prepared them thinking about breakfast, something summery and fresh to dip in the morning tea while having a chat.
They are biscuits, with the amount of dough I put in the recipe you can get 15, with a delicate basil flavor that can be perceived when tasted. If you want, you can replace the basil with lemon thyme or lemon verbena, perhaps a little more conventional but certainly just as good.

Good day!

Basil biscuits for breakfast

3 egg yolks + 1 for browning
150 g of soft butter
10 basil leaves
100 g of dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
350 g of spelled flour

In the bowl of a food processor, pour the butter cut into pieces, the chopped basil leaves, the sugar and mix until it forms a cream. Add the 3 egg yolks. Add the vanilla extract and flour and let the mixer run again. A ball of dough will form which you will tip onto a cutting board. Knead the dough as little as possible to compact it, flatten it slightly and cover it with cling film. Cool in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Roll out the dough to a thickness of 5 millimeters using a little flour. Cut the biscuits using a cutter, you will get about 15-16. Brush them with egg yolk, using a fork draw lines on each biscuit and bake at 170°C for 12-15 minutes.
