Christmas Cookies with a Secret!

Hi Everyone,

Christmas baking time! Love it but this year I really have no time so have been cheating away by using Migros cookie dough. Which I am happy to say taste fabulous and there are so many wonderful flavours to choose from – smile!

Still buying pre-made cookie dough doesn’t stop me from being creative. Check out these super Aniseed cookies with an Almond filling. They are going down a treat here.

The Aniseed dough I used was bought in Migros but for those of you not living in Switzerland or if you prefer to make your own pastry the recipe is in a previous years post

Christmas Cookies with a Secret!

The ingredients are super simple:

  1. Roll pastry to approximately 2mm and then use a heart shaped cutter to create heart shaped cookies. Place evenly on baking tray. leaving a little space between.
  2. Place slices of marzipan in the middle of half of the hearts
  3. Brush edges of the cookie with egg white and then press a second layer of cookie on top – being careful to seal along the edges.
  4. Leave to dry for 12 – 24 hours
  5. Once dry pre heat oven to 140° Celsius
  6. Bake for 25 minutes

Once baked and cooled, brush a layer of icing on each cookie and then coat with slithered almonds or another topping of your choice.

These cookies are sure to impress!

    1. Hi Lieske,
      You have to dry these cookies so that they get “feet”, sounds funny but these cookies need time to try and rise a little 🙂

      Happy Friday dear! xx
