You will need
- - 300 g flour;
- - 150 g chilled butter;
- - 50 ml of milk fat content of from 2.5 to 3.5 %;
- - 3/4 teaspoon of salt.
First refrigerate the butter up to the point that it is not pressed in the hand. As soon as it is cold grate it in a bowl on a large grater so that it does not have time to melt.
Mix the flour with salt, sift this mixture into the bowl with grated butter. Then grind this mixture with your hands into fine crumbs.
Gradually pour the resulting crumbs cold milk (before cooking better hold it in freezer for 20 minutes) and knead the dough. In the end, you should have a very plastic mass, but watery.
Wrap the dough in a plastic bag and put it on for one hour in the freezer to make it cooled.
Once the specified time passes - remove the dough from the camera, put it on the work surface and using a rolling pin roll it so that its thickness was not more than 0.5 cm (ideal thickness of 2-3 mm). The special molds (you can use a regular knife) cut out the cookies. If you use the knife, then it is possible to experiment and to carve figurines in the form of a circle, square, rectangle, Christmas tree, heart etc.
Prepare a baking sheet: cover it with parchment, and the parchment on top of flour. Place on a baking sheet prepared figures. Prick each piece with a fork and RUB salt milk (for 10 ml of milk 0.5 teaspoon of coarse salt).
Bake biscuits in the oven about 15 minutes, adjusting the temperature of 190-200 degrees.
