These cookies made with winter spices and stuffed with delicious jellies. They’re delicious when it is cold. And they also are great when served at Christmas (or gave away as a homemade gift).
This year I bake cookies at Christmas. Again, because I bake every year. Today I made a cookie that maybe looks a bit trickier, but is actually very simple to make. I started with a cookie dough flavored with gingerbread spices, because these wintry spices include cinnamon, cloves and cardamom and those are wonderfully warming and belong to the winter season. As a filling I chose strawberry jam. . Now there is the problem in this house that the children are quite fond of this jam. So I could just get a few spoons from the pot to use with the cookies. And for the cookies the same rule applied as for the jam, they were gone in a wink.
- the cookies must remain the same size (otherwise they won’t fit), it is important that you put the dough cold in the oven. That way the form will remain the same.
- you want to roll the cookies easily, put them on a baking mat and cover the dough with a plastic sheet. That way the dough won’t stick to your rolling pin and the cookie is already in the place it should be (on the baking mat that is).
