Biscuits with chocolate cover

Preparation time: 45min
Baking time: 15min
around 20 units (but depends on the used biscuit form)

200g flour
1 enveloppe baking powder
1 enveloppe vanilla sugar
80g sugar
100g butter
1 egg
1 pinch of salt
some chocolate for the decoration

Mix the flour with the baking powder and the vanilla sugar, add the sugar, the egg and the butter after letting it soft a bit.
Mix all the ingredients in the mixture carefully until a homogeneous dough is builded.
If needed add more flour so that the dough does not stick to the fingers or the table.
Let the dough stay for about 30min in the fridge.
Afterwards, roll the dough into a plank of about 0.5cm wide and cut the biscuits with a biscuit form (we use one of the Neuschwanstein castle).
Bake them in the oven for around 11 min. After they cool down, paint them with the molten chocolate and let it solidify again.
