The smell of cookies is in the air!
Warm pastries on cold days – what could be better? And who are the most eager bakers? That's right! Of course the kids.
Baking together is not only fun, children also learn important facts about food and taste. Whether biscuit slices or perfectly cut cookies – at the end they proudly present their achievments.
So get out the apron and the cookie cutters. It's time to bake!
- 300g Flour
- 100g Ground almonds
- 150g Icing sugar
- 1 Pinch of salt
- 1 Pack of vanilla sugar
- 200g butter
- 1 Egg
- 200g red- or blackcurrant jelly
- Icing sugar to dust
1. Put flour, almonds, icing sugar, salt, vanilla sugar, butter in flakes and egg in a bowl and knead to a smooth dough.
2. Form the dough into a ball, wrapped in foil to cool for 1 hour.
3. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Knead the dough, cut in half and roll out thinly on a floured surface.
4. Cut out the biscuits and place on baking trays lined with baking paper. Cut small holes, hearts or stars into each other with a small cutter. Cool baking tray with biscuits for about 15 minutes and then bake in the preheated oven for about 10minutes.
5. Let the biscuits cool and dust the perforated biscuits with icing sugar. Stir the jelly and spread on the inside of the non-punched biscuits. Place 1 perforated cookie on each and press a little.
For a cosy x-mas time
