1 tsp salt
250g plain flour

Slowly add the yolks, mixing in well, then add the salt, flour and baking powder. Mix well to form a dough.

Shape the dough

Shape the dough into a long roll about 4cm in diameter and wrap with cling film. If the dough is too long, you can split it into two rolls.

Refrigerate for at least two hours.

Unwrap the dough, then using a cutter, cut the roll into 1 cm thick discs. Place the discs on the baking tray leaving enough space in between them to expand.

Cut the rolls
Brush with egg wash

Brush the biscuits gently with egg wash.

Then finally, lightly cross the biscuits with a fork to decorate before baking for 15- 20 minutes or until golden brown.

After baking, transfer the biscuits to a wire rack to cool completely before serving.
