      Steps
      1. Preheat oven to 190°C, 170°C fan oven, Gas mark 5.
      2. Cut the Stork into small pieces.
      3. Sieve the flour and baking powder into a large bowl.
      4. Add the sugar, egg yolks and Stork and mix with a wooden spoon, hand mixer or cold hands quickly into a stiff dough (don’t mix for too long!). Wrap the dough in clingfilm and leave to rest and chill for 30 minutes in the fridge.

      7. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes until cooked and lightly browned. Leave the cookies to cool on the baking sheet.
      8. Dust the cookies with icing sugar.
