Strawberry Filled Petit Beurre

Born to be eaten.

Petit Beurre is a small rectangular cookie that was invented in 1886 
by Louis Lefèvre-Utile in Nantes. This cookie, quickly became 
a true classic in French country, with millions of packages sold 
every year throughout the world. Le petit beurre is a very crispy biscuit, 
not too sweet and not too rich. Its signature silhouette has dents 
all around the edges, tiny holes on the surface as if pricked by a fork, 
and a small browned ear at each corner.

The best part of the recipe is that it has no egg in it, so it is perfect 
for people with egg-allergy. Filled with strawberry buttercream, 
they are great with a cup of tea!

See the recipe and direction at la receta dela felicidad blog.
