Stuffed Apple Cookies
Are you ready for another Tasty Tuesday ?
I definitly am. So today I wanted to share the recipe for my beloved apple cookies with you. I think I was first introduced to them when I was maybe twelve years old and they have been an all time favourite ever since. The best thing is probably that they can be enjoyed through out the whole year, which is always great. In winter I recommend to eat them when they are still warm. Oh, I just love them and I could eat them, without doubt, every day.
But beware, you’ll need a little patience with these, because the dough has to stay in the fridge overnight. But let’s get started!
For the dough: For the stuffing:
• 200g curt • 2-3 apples
• 200g butter • 1tbsp honey/agave syrup
• 200g flour • Cinnamon (I recommend 1 tbsp)
• 1/2tsp baking powder • 1tbsp butter
• 1 pinch of salt
• 1 egg yolk
Take all ingredients for the dough exept the egg yolk and put them into a big bowl. Knead everything together until you get a nice moldable dough, mold it into a ball, wrap it with some aluminium foil and place it in the fridge for the night.
It’s a new day!
Let’s start with the stuffing. Peel the apples and slice them up into tiny little pieces. Now place a pot on your stove and heat it up. Turn the heat down to medium, put the butter into the pan and melt it. Get your apple slices and stew them for about 5 minutes, while stirring every now and than. Pour in the honey and the cinnamon, stir it all together, turn down the heat and let it simmer for another minute. Put the pan somewhere it can cool down a little. Heat up your oven to 200°C.
Get the dough out of the fridge, roll it out thinly (~2mm) and cut out round shaped cookies (I like to use a normal drinking glass). For one cookie you’ll need two slices. Place a piece of baking parchment on a baking tray and put one half of the dough slices you made on it. Now take your stuffing and put a little more than 1 tsp.in the middle of every cookie. Wet the outer edges of the cookies with a little bit of water, place the other halves on top and press them gently together. Apply some of the egg yolk on top of the cookies (If you don’t eat eggs you can definitly leave this part out, like I do). Place the baking tray in the oven (middle rail) and bake the cookies for about 10-12 minutes until they are golden. If you didn’t use egg yolk they’ll won’t get that golden.
