Description

Rich butter cookies sandwich a layer of jam between them for this sweet and adorable dessert. The cookies feature ground hazelnuts for a nutty and bold flavor that perfectly complements the fruity jam. If hazelnuts aren't your thing, or you are out, simply swap them for almonds for a just as delicious treat. A dusting of powdered sugar beautifully contrasts the bright jam and gives these cookies an elegant look.

Ingredients

250 grams flour
salt
30 grams hazelnuts (powder)
1 eggs
150 grams butter (cut into pieces)
20 grams brown sugar
1 egg yolks
jam
70 grams powdered sugar

Directions

1In a bowl, add flour, hazelnut powder, sugar, a pinch of salt, and egg and mix gradually adding in butter. Once the dough forms a ball, stop kneading. Another option is placing all the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and pulsing until the dough starts forming a ball. Cool for 2 hours.
2Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
3Roll out the dough on a floured surface. Using cookie cutters, cut the dough into strips. Arrange the cookie dough on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Mix the egg yolk with a tablespoon of water and brush the cookies with this mixture. Cook about 5 to 10 minutes until lightly browned.
4Spread a little bit of jam on half of the cookies and cover them with the remaining cookies. Sprinkle with icing sugar or serve as is.
5Vary the recipe by substituting the hazelnut powder with almond or walnut powder.
