Preparation in advance:

Stir the butter soft in a bowl and add the eggs one by one. Add sugar, salt and spices, mix well and sift flour and baking powder over. Knead to a firm dough, wrap and let rest at least 1 hour in the fridge.

How to prepare:

Preheat the oven to 200C/395F (fan oven 180C/360F).

Flour a work area, roll out the dough until 1/2 cm thick and cut round cookies (about 10-12 cm/4-5 inch). Coat with beer, sprinkle the pearl sugar over.

Place on a greased sheet and bake crispy in 20 minutes.

Take the cookies, immediately after baking, from the sheet and let cool on a wire rack.

When kept airtight (in a drum) these cookies can be preserved very long.
