  • 100 grams (1 stick) cold butter, cut into cubes

Instructions

  1. Dough: in a food processor with a steel blade, put flour, almond meal, cornstarch, butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and salt and blend until a crumbly mixture is obtained.
  2. Add the yolk and continue to blend until large chunks of dough form. If the dough does not combine into large lumps - gradually add a little water.
  3. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface, and form a disc shape with your hands.
  4. Wrap in plastic wrap and cool in the refrigerator for about an hour.
  5. On a floured surface, roll out the dough about 3-4 mm thick and cut out cookies of the desired shape. Make a small hole in ½ of the cookies using a small round cookie cutter.
  6. Place the cookies on a baking pan lined with baking paper.
  7. Preheat the oven to 170c degrees.
  8. Bake the cookies for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Cool completely at room temperature.
  10. Fill each pair of cookies with jam and close to a small sandwich.

Recipe Notes

  • Keep the cookies in a closed container for up to a week.
  • You can fill the cookies with any spread you like or jam in other flavors.
  • Instead of almond meal you can use any other ground nut you like in the same amount.
