The Seven Days of Jul Cookies – Berlinerkranser

Wonderful, buttery little bites that are great with cup of chai (probably coffee too). Be careful not to overcook these cookies the first batch took a little while to brown and then were a bit dry.  After that I baked as directed and they are much better.


  • 2 Egg yolks – hard-boiled
  • 2 Egg yolks – raw
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Butter
  • 2 1/2 cups Flour
  • Egg White & Pearl Sugar for decoration


  1. Mix together the hard-boiled and raw egg yolks
  2. Add the sugar and whisk well
  3. Mix in the flour and softened butter alternately until it becomes a smooth dough
  4. Wrap in cling film and pop in the fridge for at least an hour
  5. Roll the dough out into thin sausages about 10 cm in length
  6. Form them into wreaths and place onto a baking sheet
  7. Brush with egg white and sprinkle pearl sugar on them
  8. Bake them at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden
  9. Cool on a wire rack and place into an air-tight box

I tried rolling out the dough and pressing a few too. They are great – nicely crispy.
