Vanilla cookies

By Sanda Pagaimo: www.littleupsidedowncake.com


500g flour, sifted
250g butter
4 tbs of caster sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
Juice of one lemon
Vanilla infused icing sugar
Rosehip Jam (I used cherry jam)


Preheat oven to 180 ̊C (350 ̊F)

In the bowl of a stand mixer, add butter and caster sugar, beat until light and fluffy. Add egg and egg yolk, combine. Add lemon juice, stir, then add flour.

Roll out dough to a thickness of 1.5 cm.

Using a 2.5 inch cookie cutter, cut out round and place on a lined baking tray.

Cook in the oven for approx. 20 minutes. The cookies should remain pale visually.

Cool on a wire rack, when cold toss each cookie in a bowl containing a few tablespoons of powdered/ icing sugar then sandwich two cookies together with a teaspoon of sieved cherry or rosehip jam.
