Cooking Preparation

Preparation Guide

  • In a mixing bowl, cream together softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

  • Add the soaked saffron along with the milk and vanilla extract to the butter-sugar mixture. Mix well to combine.

  • Gradually add the all-purpose flour to the mixture, stirring until a smooth dough forms. If the dough is too crumbly, add a teaspoon of milk at a time until it comes together.

  • Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Roll it out into a 1/4-inch thick sheet using a rolling pin.

  • Use cookie cutters to cut out desired shapes from the dough. Place the cut-out biscuits onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

  • Optionally, garnish the biscuits with sliced almonds or pistachios, pressing them gently onto the surface.

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

  • Bake the saffron biscuits in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the edges turn golden brown.

  • Once baked, remove the biscuits from the oven and let them cool on the baking tray for a few minutes.

  • Transfer the cooled saffron biscuits to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Serve the saffron biscuits with a cup of tea or coffee, and enjoy their delicate flavor and aroma.

Chef's Tips

  • Ensure that the butter is softened to room temperature for easier creaming with sugar.

  • Adjust the quantity of saffron according to your preference for color and flavor intensity.

  • Be careful not to overmix the dough to prevent the biscuits from becoming tough.

  • You can store the saffron biscuits in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week.
