Ingredients for 8
(If you are by yourself, divide the recipe or freeze half before you finish the whole batch)
- 18 oz flour
- 4 oz sugar
- 3 oz of softened margarine
- 2 large eggs ( plus 1 yoke for shining)
- lemon rind
- pinch of salt
Mix all ingredients with the melted margarine until the dough is smooth. Divide the dough in 5 parts, sprinkle some flour on the working surface to prevent sticking and make a roll out of each piece.
Cut slices of rolls and shape them in an oval shape, pinched at the ends.
Put them all on a greased baking sheet and make an incision in each one. Let sit for 2 hours.
Use the egg yolk to shine the Navettes and bake 15 minutes at thermostat 6 or at 350 degrees.
Enjoy! Close your eyes and pretend you are at the patisserie-boulangerie near the Vieux Port.
These keep for a long time in a can. They make a great snack for travelers. Line them up in a nice box as a present for hostess gift.
