300g flour
1 tsp baking powder
85g icing sugar
½ tsp salt
1 drop vanilla essence
1 tbsp orange blossom water
85g butter
3 egg yolks
25g honey
50ml milk
2 tbsp aniseed seed
Icing Sugar
170g icing sugar
1 egg white
1 tsp lemon juice

Place the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a bowl, add the butter and rub till the mixture is crumbly. Stir in the egg yolks, honey, milk, vanilla essence, orange blossom water and aniseed. Knead the dough until smooth. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Remove and roll out the dough, cut out the rings with pastry cutters and bake for 15 minutes at 180ºC.

To make the icing pour 70ml of boiling water into the icing sugar in a pan and heat. Whisk the egg white until stiff, add the icing sugar syrup and lemon juice. Dip the Rousquilles into the mixture so that they are covered.
