15 portions
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup almond, peeled
  • 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 cups unsalted butter, soft
  • 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 6 tablespoons Strawberry jam, or jam to taste
  • 2 teaspoons powdered sugar, to decorate


Mix the flour with the almonds in a food processor. Mix until the almonds grind very well.
Add 2 tablespoons more flour and baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Stir again.
Put the sugar, butter and lemon zest in a bowl for blender . Acre the butter for 3 minutes and add the egg yolks. Continue beating until fluffy.
Slowly add the flour mixture to the yolk mixture until a dough forms. Knead it a couple of times with your hands.
Divide the dough in two and put on plastic paper (egapack) and wrap each ball of dough. Let cool for 1 hour.
After an hour, heat the oven to 180 degrees and put flour on a flat surface to work.
Remove the dough and flatten until it is 3 mm thick. With a cutter in the shape of a star cut each cookie (they should come out as 36 of each dough).
Repeat the previous step but now cut on a mold equal but smaller a hole in the center of each cookie (this is what you see filled with jam). Put the cookies in a greased tray.
Arrange cookies in a greased tray (about 2 cm away so they do not stick) and bake for 10 minutes (first one tray and then the other).
Let cool in a rack and when they are cold, spread half of the cookie without a hole with jam and put the other one on top. Sprinkle with icing sugar.
