The Gift of Giving---#4---Hungarian Double Decker Cookies
The Gift of Giving recipe #4
Hungarian Double Decker Cookies
I enjoy these cookies, the slight cinnamony flavor blends really well with the taste of the apricot jam. I usually make these without the icing sugar coating. (I seem to be a slob and I always get more icing sugar on my clothes than in my mouth) These look really pretty if you use the scallopped edged cookie cutters.
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 2 egg
- 1 1/2 cup butter or margarine (do not use whipped margarine too much water in it)
- 3 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 3 tbsps sour cream
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- Apricot jam (any types of good quality jam can be used)
- 1/4 cup Almond slices (filberts can also be used)
- icing sugar for sprinkling (optional)
- 1 egg & spash of milk (egg-wash)
Cream butter, sugar and add eggs. Beat well, add flour, salt and cinnamon. Add sour cream, continue to knead dough by hand until soft. Refrigerate for 2 hours. Roll on floured board to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into rounds. Cut center out (using a small cookie cutter) of 1/2 of rounds. These are the tops of the cookies. Stack 'tops on bottoms', drop small spoon of jam in center 'holes' egg-wash, sprinkle with almond slices. Bake at 375 degrees for 7-10 minutes or very lightly brown. Sprinkle with icing sugar while still warm. (I prefer these without icing sugar as I seem to be a slob and wear half the sugar on my clothes)
