Christmas Biscuit Recipe (New, Corrected Translation)

Cream these ingredients, that by their comingling you may begin to make the dough:
1 chalice butter, 2/3 chalice sugar

In a similar way, when the butter is consubstantial with the sugar, beat in:
1 egg

Gather these dry ingredients to yourself and combine them, so that you may add them to the dough which you have already begun to make:
2 1/2 chalices sifted all-purpose flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix the precious dough with your venerable hands.

Into the refrigerator graciously place the dough so that it may be chilled, for the duration of 3 or 4 hours, before the rolling and cutting of the biscuits.

When, in the fullness of time, you are ready to bake these spotless biscuits, these delicious biscuits, these Christmas biscuits, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Roll out the dough and, taking up a biscuit cutter or stencil of your choosing, fashion the biscuits into pleasing forms.

Sprinkle colourful adornments over the biscuits like the dewfall.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the biscuits have just begun to manifest the brownness that is vouchsafed to them by the oven’s heat.

May these biscuits be found acceptable in your sight, and be borne to a place of refreshment at your table, there to be served with milk or hot chocolate, or with your spirits.

Merry Christmas!
