Snowflakes with Jam – To keep warm in winter

I've already posted a lot of recipes for cookies with jam. However, I really like the shapes of snowflakes, so I came up with the idea of baking snowflake cookies with jam! What do you think about it?

 

Ingredients for Snowflakes with Jam:

 

250 g Butter

125 g Powdered Sugar

1 Lemon

1 Package of Vanilla Sugar

500 g Flour

50 g ground Walnuts

Jar of Fruit Jam (Strawberry or Raspberry Jam)

 

Required baking tools: Cookie Cutter – Snowflake

 

 

Method:

 

Cream butter with sugar, add zest and juice of one lemon. Mix walnuts with vanilla sugar, then add to the previous mixture. Gradually add sifted flour until a homogeneous dough is obtained.

 

Roll out the dough to a thickness of about 5 mm. Cut out the cookies with a snowflake-shaped cookie cutter. On half of your cookies cut out the middle with a circle-shaped mini cookie cutter.

 

Arrange the cookies on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and bake at 180 °C for about 5-10 minutes (depending on dough thickness).

 

Cookie decorating:

 

Here is how I proceed with decorating to get these pretty cookies.

 

At first, I cover half of each cut out cookie with baking paper and I sprinkle uncovered half with powdered sugar. After that I spread a thin layer of jam on the whole bottom surface of the cookies. Finally, I place the prepared cut out cookies (sprinkled with sugar) on top and I gently sandwich them together.
