5th door of the Advent calendar
- 250 g softened butter
- 125 g sugar
- 3 egg yolks
- Some grated lemon peel
- 375 g flour
- Currant Jelly
- Icing sugar for dusting
Whisk the butter and sugar with a blender until you get a creamy consistency.
Add the egg yolks and lemon zest and knead in the flour. Cover and leave to rest for a while in the fridge.
Form small balls from the dough and place them on a baking tray covered with baking paper. Make a little dimple in the middle of the balls (for example with your little finger or the handle of a wooden spoon) and fill with the currant jelly.
If the jelly is too firm, warm it up a little beforehand. Bake the cookies in a preheated oven at 180 °C for approx. 10-15 minutes.
Let the cookies cool down on a cake rack. Dust the cold cookies with icing sugar.
