Very easy to do, very crumbly and too cute, I don't know about you, but just looking at them make me happy and since Monday morning must be taken in the right way, the little angel faces are my way to wish you a sweet start week!
How to make Angel Boccucce biscuits
Place the butter cut into small pieces in a bowl together with the sugar and work the mixture until soft, then add the egg.
After incorporating the egg, add the sifted flour, salt and a pinch of baking soda.
Knead the biscuits with your fingertips until all the flour has been absorbed and the biscuit dough is homogeneous
The mixture will be very soft and sticky, it is normal :)
Take with your hands, from time to time, a small amount of dough and obtain many balls the size of a walnut.
Arrange the balls obtained from time to time on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper, taking care to space the balls of dough from each other so that they do not stick together during cooking.
Place 1/2 candied cherry in the center of each ball, exerting slight pressure.
Preheat the oven to 160 ° then bake the cookies and bake for about 20 minutes or until golden.
Allow the boccucce d'angelo biscuits to cool, then lift them and transfer them to a serving dish.
