This recipe is closing the trilogy of exploiting 12 eggs. The first recipe was this one αυτήν την συνταγή and the second can be found here. με αυτήν εδώ. I was really curious to try this recipe that seems a little heavy at first because of the so many yolks. They tasted extra yummy, they didn’t lose shape when baked and can be excellent decoration cookies. When raw they are a little yellowish however baked the yellow color goes away. Follow the instructions on spreading the butter and how to handle them on the baking process and the recipe is a sure success! You can always eat them as they are or decorate them with royal icing, sugarpaste of truffles. I tried my talent in painting sugar paste (hmm with mediocre results), made Santa boots and snow balls. The snow balls were surprisingly easy to make(check out how to make them here ) The materials and equipment were bought from here and here. Aren’t they the perfect edible gifts for Christmas? Put them in cute packaging and offer them to your loved ones. These gifts are for me the best and most valuable. I know I owe you a lot of posts with tips on sugar paste and decorating but until I manage to make them you can always ask for any advice via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), via comment, or wherever in my social world. Happy decorating! More festive posts are to come so don’t go far.
