Vanilla Cookies

Updated: Feb 14

  • Vanillas biscuits or cookies are made in several ways, you can supplement them with walnuts, or almonds, or they can be plain, with the addition of lemon peel, but vanilla extract is present everywhere, even jam. Vanilla cakes are easy and simple to prepare. They are ready quickly. Follow the recipe.

Ingredients: mold 2.5-3 cm, simple, total time: 65 min. 25–30 biscuits
  • 300 g of flour

  • 200 g of softened butter or fat

  • 100 g of icing sugar

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 1 bag of vanilla sugar/ 10 g

  • 1 pinch of salt

  • powdered sugar for dusting

For the Filling:

  • apricot jam or your preference

  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla essence

  1. Preheat the oven to 170 °C.

  2. In a large bowl, mix the flour, powdered sugar, vanilla sugar and pinch of salt. Add the softened butter cut into small pieces and work the dough with your hands or with a food processor until it becomes a homogeneous mass. Add the egg yolk and continue kneading until the dough becomes smooth.

  3. Form the dough into a ball, cover it with plastic wrap, and place it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.

  4. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and shape the dough into balls the size of a walnut. Squeeze each ball between your hands to form an oval shape, and then fold it in slightly, so the ends are pointing slightly up. You can work with the help of a mold: Roll out the dough with a rolling pin on a floured work surface, let the dough be about 5-6 mm thick and pull out the molds.

  5. Place the vanilla cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, bake in a preheated oven for about 15–20 minutes, or until golden brown. Do not allow them to be overcooked because the vanilla beans must be more pale.

  6. Let the vanilla beans cool completely.

  7. Mix the jam with the vanilla essence.

  8. Take a vanilla extract and spread some jam on it and cover it with another vanilla extract, creating a shaped cookie. Continue until you run out of vanilla. Sprinkle the vanilla beans with icing sugar before serving. Enjoy! Buon appetito!
