Eggs are broken down well with the sugar. Carefully add the melted and slightly cooled lard, as the beating continues. Ammonia soda was dissolved in yogurt and effervescent when added to the mixture. Sift the flour 2 times and gradually added to the dough along with vanilla. Blended into a soft dough. Divide into 3 balls and went to rest in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Take the first ball and roll it with a rolling pin into a sheet with a thickness of 2-3 mm. Using the shapes are cut bunnies, chicks, lambs. Arrange in not oiled tray. Spread top with beaten egg yolks with 1 tbsp water and thoroughly sprinkled with sugar. Optional put grains of coriander for eyes. Bake in a moderate oven.

Nelly, today made a half dose cookies, but them over colored. Not received saturated colors, but cookies melt in your mouth ... Thanks for the nice recipe!

Reni, I'm glad you liked the cookies. I do them for years and tried them asked for the recipe. What paint color them and in what colors? Do not you have pictures?

Nelly, fear me confectionery - yellow, red and blue. Put them when the dough is a row, but I could not decide and put them where it was like cakes ... So do not got saturated colors. See full cooked what today. In good cookies'm not eaten - a shade of kisses - are both crispy, yet mekichki ...

Today I put part of cookies delight received is even more delicious! Next time I'll try with halva.
