Preparation:
Preheat the oven to 180°C (convection oven 160°C). Knead 500 gram mix with 1 egg, 60 gram butter and 60 ml water into a firm dough and let it stiffen in the fridge for at least 1 hour.

Roll out the dough on a floured surface (2-3 mm thickness) and cut out the cookies. Bake the cookies in the middle of the oven for approx. 10-12 minutes until brown. Let the cookies cool down. If desired, you can freeze the remaining dough wrapped in plastic.

Prepare 450 gram Mix for Royal Icing as indicated on the package or in the basic recipe. Dilute the icing with a bit of water until it has the thickness of thick yogurt. Place the tip in the icing bag and fill with the icing. Fill up the cookies with the icing. You can use a tooth pick to push the icing towards the edges. Let the cookies dry overnight.

Use the black brush to draw lines on the hardened cookies and use the glue to paste the pearls on the cookies.
