Merry Christmas

There's no Christmas without Linzer Cookies, so I asked my friend Carin to come over to my place and help me bake a few for a little Noël à Paris I organised later that week. It was of course just an excuse to spend a great day with my friend and these cute little hedgehogs are result of that afternoon. We were both excited to see during our little Christmas get-together that everyone enjoyed them as much as we did. The recipe couldn't be easier so don't be afraid to give it a try.

100g powdered sugar
300g flour
200g butter
1 egg
25g vanilla sugar
zest of lemon

Mix together all the ingredients (except the jam), wrap the dough with a plastic and leave it to rest for one hour in the fridge. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180 degrees. 

Great tip from my mum! Roll out the dough between two sheets of plastic foil to 4mm thickness. Start cutting out your cookies with a cookie cutter. Place the cookies on a baking tray and cook for 7 minutes or until lightly golden, keep a close eye on them! Once cool, spread the jam on each solid cookie and top with the halves with the cut-out center. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.

Merry Christmas everyone! May your Christmas sparkle with moments of love, laughter and goodwill. xx
