- 1/2 vanilla bean
- 270 grams powdered sugar
- 150 grams butter (softened)
- 250 grams all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 0.5 deciliters water
- 200 grams powdered sugar
- lemon juice
- 280 grams raspberry jam
- crushed pistachios
- raspberries (Lyophilized)
- Split the vanilla pod in half lengthwise. Run the unsharpened side of a knife down the length of each pod half to scrape the seeds. Add them 70 grams of powdered sugar.
- In a medium-sized bowl, put the softened butter and add the vanilla sugar. Mix.
- Add the flour and baking powder. Stir and then, gradually add in the water. Knead to get a homogeneous dough ball.
- Cover with a film and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celsius.
- Remove the dough from the refrigerator, wait for 5 to 8 minutes before rolling it out finely on a working surface. Since you are going to superimpose 2 layers of dough, it is better to have a thin layer of dough.
- Using a round cookie cutter, cut your circles (around forty) and place them on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
- Bake for 8 minutes.
- In the meantime, pour 200 grams of icing sugar in another medium-sized bowl. Add a few drops of lemon juice for a fluid icing. Make sure the icing is not too liquid so that it does not run off your cookies.
- Place the cookies on a wire rack to let them cool. Spread raspberry jam on half of them and cover with a second circle.
- Glaze the cookies when coo. Directly add the pistachios and lyophilised raspberries on top.
- Allow the icing to set.
