3/4 pound butter
8 tablespoons fine confectioner's sugar
2 1/2 cups cake and pastry flour
candied fruit or other garnish
Combine all the ingredients and mix vigorously.
The butter should be quite soft so that air can be worked into the mixture.
Roll the dough into 3/4 inch balls and place them on a cookie sheet.
Press the candied fruit or other garnish firmly onto each ball.
Bake (convection oven is best) until the edges of the cookies just begin to brown.
Allow the cookies to cool on the sheet for a while before attempting to remove them.
There is no oven temperature for this. If anyone has made these can you let me know what temp you baked them at in a regular oven. I don't have a convection oven. Thanks.
