Mix the butter with the sugar, vanilla, egg yolks, apple juice and orange peel.
Add the flour and knead the dough til it is smooth.

Use a piping nozzle to create dough rings, bars or other kind of forms you like on the wax paper of your baking sheet.

So my KitchenAid was always a great help. BUT this dough recipe surprised me. The dough was soft and tender and I a pipping nozzle wouldn´t have been a problem at all this time.

Bake the cookies in the preheated oven at 350°F for 10-12 minutes.

After they are cooled down you can coat them with melted chocolated if you like.
