Method
  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Cut the butter into small cubes and add them to the mixer’s bowl.
  • Add all of the remaining ingredients for the 1st mixture and beat on low speed for 1 minute with the whisk attachment and then beat on high speed until all of the ingredients are completely combined and become fluffy.
  • In the meantime in a separate bowl, add all of the ingredients for the 2nd mixture and whisk until the eggs and milk are completely incorporated.
  • Gradually add the 2nd mixture to the mixer with the 1st mixture and beat until completely combined.
  • The mixture may seem like it has split but don’t worry because it will all come together as you go along.
  • In a separate bowl, add all of the ingredients for the 3rd mixture (apart from the egg yolk which is meant for making the egg wash) and mix with a spoon.
  • Remove the mixing bowl from the mixer’s stand and add the 3rd mixture to the bowl.
  • Mix with a plastic spatula until it becomes hard to mix and continue mixing by hand until you create a dough that is soft, fluffy and elastic.
  • Transfer dough to a working surface and let it rest for 5 minutes.
  • Knead and shape cookies in the shape of a braid.
  • Transfer to a baking pan lined with parchment paper, leaving enough space between them.
  • Brush cookies with egg wash.
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.
