Express bredle (without waiting for the dough to rest)

The perfect recipe to prepare with children.

Ingredients

  • 270 g of flour

  • 100 g of sugar

  • 100 g of butter

  • 1 sachet of vanilla sugar

  • 1 pinch of salt

  • 1 egg

For the glaze

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 1 tablespoon of whole cream

Equipment

  •  1 mixing bowl

  • Pastry cutters 

  • 1 bowl

  •  Baking trays

  • 1 grill to allow the biscuits to cool

  • 1 rolling pin

  • 1 brush

Instructions :

Get your little ones to pour the flour, sugar, salt and vanilla sugar into a mixing bowl. Ask them to mix the ingredients together using their (clean!) hands or a wooden spoon.

Next, get them to cut the butter into small chunks and place it into the mixing bowl. They’ll need to fold the butter into the powder until the texture becomes sandy. 

Ask them to crack the egg and add it to the mixture. Then, they’ll need to mix everything together (but not too much!) until it forms a ball (they might need help to make a uniform ball shape).

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line two baking trays with butter and flour or cover each one with baking paper.

Ask your children to dust the work surface with a fine layer of flour. Divide up the dough and give a piece to each child. Using a rolling pin, get them to roll out the dough until it is 4-5 mm thick. Children may find this part tricky, so they might need your help. 

Next, ask them to cut the dough into shapes using the pastry cutters of their choice. Place a baking tray in front of each child so they can place their shapes on them. Then, ask them to gather up the offcuts, squash them together to form a new ball, then flatten out the dough with a rolling pin and cut out more shapes until all the dough has been used. 

Help your children mix the egg yolk and cream together to make the glaze, then let each child brush the glaze onto their shapes. 

Place the bredle in the oven for around 10 minutes, then remove and leave them on a grill to cool.
