Walnut Cookies with Strawberry Filling

Hello my friends! Happy Thursday!

I’ve been baking cookies but they seem to rather disappear quickly…I haven’t made that many varieties yet, the usual ones that have been made for centuries and I always try out some new recipe. I’ve made my Soft Gingerbread Cookies already twice!

A few weeks ago, just as I was getting into the holiday spirit, I had to learn that my dad has cancer. Needless to say I was not in the mood for blogging or anything like that anymore. But it is better to keep busy and I am trying to post regularly again.

I’ve made these super yummy walnut cookie stars, they are filled with strawberry jam.

Walnut Cookies with Strawberry Filling

Ingredients:

  • 250 g spelt flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 100 g honey
  • 200 g butter, soft
  • 1 egg
  • 150 g walnuts, finely ground
  • 150 g strawberry jelly

Instructions:

-Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

-Combine flour and baking powder. Add all other ingredients and mix until well combined. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

-Roll dough out to about 3 mm thickness, cut out equal amounts of stars with a hole and without.

-Place on prepared baking sheets and bake in a preheated 180 C oven for about 8-10 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown. Let cool completely.

-Spread jam onto stars without a hole and top with a cookie that has a hole.

Tip: You can use unbleached all-purpose flour instead of the spelt flour. Other nuts can be used, like hazelnuts or almonds. Use red currant or raspberry jelly instead.
