Petits Beurre Recipe

The Perfect Petit Beurre Recipe

These biscuits have been sold for a long time in France and are associated with the kids tea time or “Goûter”. I got the idea of making them from one of my favorite trusted foodie sites who had been looking for the perfect Petit Beurre recipe for a long time.

She came across this kit with the cutter, stamp and recipe book to reproduce the biscuits recipe from our childhood. She was very happy with the results so I bought the kit too and have been making these a couple of times already! Let’s just say they are one of those healthyish french dishes.


200g sugar
200g salted butter
125g water
2g salt (a pinch)
500g flour
1/2 tsp baking powder


  1. Place the sugar, butter, water and salt in the TM bowl and cook for 3 min/60C/speed 2
  2. Cool down the mixture by mixing 20 min/speed 2, Measuring cup OFF until the bowl is just luke warm to the touch
  3. Add the flour and baking powder and stir 30 sec/speed 3.
  4. If some flour is still not combined, stir it in with the spatula (being careful of the blades).
  5. The mixture should be quite thick but soft to the touch. Wrap in cling film and leave in the fridge for 3 hours minimum to harden.
  6. Preheat the oven 180C.
  7. Flour your worktop and roll the biscuits to a very thin layer (2 to 3 mm)
  8. Using a cookie cutter of your choice, cut out shape and place them on a tray lined with baking parchment/silicone sheet
  9. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
  10. Leave to cool and store in an airtight container.
