Angel Eyes

Angel Eyes

Something for the fruit lovers among you. A simple light dough with jam. You are welcome to adjust the variety of jam to your taste. I like especially cherry or currant, but apricot or apple are great choices as well.

Portions 42

You need

  • 250 g Flour
  • 1 TSP Baking Powder
  • 100 g Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Pinch of Salt
  • 1 Pck. Vanilla Sugar
  • 2 Egg yolks
  • 150 g Butter
  • 4 TBSP Red Currant Jam

Here’s how to do it

  • Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Add sugar, salt, vanilla sugar and the egg yolks. Cut the butter into pieces and add them to the bowl. Knead all the ingredients with your hands until you have a smooth dough. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for about 30 minutes.
  • Line 2 baking sheets with baking paper and preheat the oven to 200 °C.
  • Once the dough has rested, shape it into about 42 balls and place them on the baking trays with a little space between them. Use a floured wooden spoon to make a cavity in the center of each dough ball. You can use any round object you have at hand.
  • Then heat the jam slightly while stirring until it becomes liquid and fill it with a teaspoon into the cavities of the cookies.
  • Put the trays one after the other into the oven for about 10 minutes. Then take the cookies out of the oven and let them cool on a rack.
