Step 1: Making the dough

Strain the egg yolks through a fine-screened sieve.

Cream the butter. Add the confectioners’ sugar, then fold in the strained egg yolks. Finish with the flour and starch. Delicately knead. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Step 2: Shaping and baking

Roll out the dough to a thickness of 1/10 inch (2 mm). Cut out cookies with a round fluted pastry cutter 2 inches (5 cm) in diameter, then remove the center of half of the cookies using a smaller pastry cutter (1 inch or 3 cm in diameter). Bake at 302°F (150°C) until browned. Set aside in a dry place.
