  • 120 g corn flour (or very fine polenta)
  • 110 g of wheat flour (T55)
  • 60 g of butter

  • 50 g of fluffy blond grapes
  • 1 egg
  • 2 pinches of baking powder
  • the zest of a lemon
  • possibly a veil of icing sugar to serve

In a salad bowl, combine the 2 kinds of flour. Add the finely chopped lemon zest, a pinch of salt and the yeast. In a bowl, beat the egg with the powdered sugar. Pour into the bowl. Stir in the diced butter and the blond grapes, mix until smooth.

Form a pudding 5 cm in diameter, cover it with cling film and put it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 180 ° C. Slice the pudding to form about 24 round cookies. Align the zaeti obtained on a plate lined with baking paper, bake for 10 min.

Let the zaeti cool on a rack.
