“Such an interesting ingredient list - hard boiled egg yolks? Sounds like a lovely, old-fashioned butter cookie. I would probably decorate with colored sugar and maybe a piece of glace fruit or cherry at the top. Recipe didn't state the yield, so the yield is my guess. PREP TIME DOESN'T INCLUDE 2 HOUR REFRIGERATION TIME.”

  1. Mash the hard-boiled yolks well, then add the raw egg yolks, mixing well.
  2. Blend in the sugar, butter and flour to make a stiff dough. Cover dough and refrigerate for several hours.
  3. Lightly grease the cookie sheet and preheat the oven to 375°F.
  4. Take small pieces of dough and roll them into ropes 1/2 inch thick and 4 inches long. Join the two ends and press together, forming a wreath shape.
  5. Dip the wreaths into the lightly beaten egg whites, then into granulated sugar, placing them on the cookie sheet. If using glace fruit for decoration, place it now.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
