Christmas time is as a well baking time and while I do like to stick to some traditional baking I tend to add something new here and there, too, as mentioned as well under my post about traditions.
So when a dear friend moved away and left me a jar of lemon curd, I decided to add some lemon curd cookies this year again. Lemon curd is something I came across while mingling with some lovely Brits during our stay in Germany and the thought of baking them brought up some nice memories! Easy, quick and delicious!
Lemon Curd Cookies
1 egg, room temperature
110gr unsalted butter, room temperature
240gr plain flour
60gr caster sugar
pinch of salt
1/4 teaspoon almond flavouring (optional)
abt 20 teaspoon lemon curd
icing sugar for coating (optional)
Beat the sugar and butter until creamy.
Add the egg and mix until well combined.
Add a pinch of salt and almond flavouring (optional) and mix with spatula.
Shift in the flour.
Mix with spatula or hands until it all comes together.
Make a ball and wrap in clingfilm and chill in the fridge for about 30min.
When chilled take the dough out of the fridge and form into small balls (about the size of a walnut). Flatten slightly, with a teaspoon make a dent in the centre for the lemon curd.
Fill each cookie with lemon curd.
Bake in preheated oven at 180deg for 10-13 min.
Transfer to wire rack and let them cool down.
Sprinkle with icing sugar (optional).
Keep in airtight container and enjoy!
