Linzer Christmas Tree Cookies


Here is a recipe for some easy and decorative Christmas cookies.  Merry Christmas everyone ♥

You need:  600 g flour, 220 g icing sugar (plus some for decorating), 4 egg yolks, 1 tsp vanilla essence, 400 g butter, raspberry jam

Combine all ingredients (except for the jam) to a dough and refrigerate for at least half an hour. Roll out the dough to about 5 mm and cut out shapes with a cookie cutter of your choice.

Punch holes or shapes into half the cookies before baking. Bake at 180 degrees for 8-12 minutes, or until the edges start to brown.

Remove from oven and allow to cool for at least 15 minutes. Spread some raspberry jam on the cookies without holes, and sprinkle some icing sugar over the cookies with holes. Combine the two parts carefully to avoid the icing sugar falling on the jam, so that the cut-out shapes stay bright red.
