Christmas Coo­kies

Christmas is just around the corner and for all of us who enjoy a sweet treat or two, Eli­sa­beth Feulner has just the very thing for those grey, rainy days … strea­ming Christmas songs while baking yummy coo­kies. A sure way to get in the Christmas spirit, and you won’t be able to wait for the fes­tive season by the time you’re cut­ting out these cookies.

The recipe I’m sug­gesting is one that I’ve been using for a long time now. There are two things going for it. First, you don’t ne­ces­s­a­rily have to be a baking ma­estro to make these coo­kies, and second – and the main thing, of course – they taste truly de­li­cious. Just be sure to re­serve enough time, be­cause de­pen­ding on the size of the bis­cuits you cut out, it can take a while to spread out each of the layers. I always tend to use re­la­tively small cookie cut­ters, be­cause I find this makes the coo­kies taste even better, and it looks like there’s more of them too.

Happy Christmas and happy baking!

  • 150 g flour
  • 40 g sugar
  • 75 g butter
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 100 g mar­zipan paste
  • 50 g cho­co­late coating
  • 50 g apricot jam
  • Walnut ker­nels

Com­bine the flour, sugar, butter, egg yolk and a pinch of salt, and knead into a dough. Roll out thinly and cut out the coo­kies. Bake in the oven at 200 °C for 5 – 10 mi­nutes. Remove and allow to cool.

Spread some apricot jam on the coo­kies, and add a piece of mar­zipan. Then cover with the cho­co­late coa­ting and de­co­rate with a walnut kernel.

Tip: You can use up the white of the eggs by making some mac­a­roons later on.
