Somehow, I could never really get warm with these cookies, because you see them in the stores all over the year, therefore they have not much to do with Christmas at least in my eyes. However, it has just turned out that this is one of the most favourite cookies, at least in my area. They are also sold in local farmer's shop and I had to try quite a bunch of them. I must say some were good, but others totally dry. So I decided to bake them myself and took them with me to my favourite farmer's shop. As they liked them very much, I have received an order from them, so I have spent the past few days Spitzbuben.

250 g butter
125 g powder sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
1 pinch of salt
1 egg white
350 g flour

Cream butter with powder sugar and vanilla sugar. Add the rest of the ingredients and knead a smooth dough. Chill for 1 hour. Roll out about 2 mm thick and cut round forms with a cookie cutter. Bake in the preaheated oven on 170°C for 7-8 minutes, then let it cool on a wrack. Take two cookies and fill with any kind of jam you desire.

These look so elegant and festive! Definitely adding these to my Christmas baking repertoire. I'm not very skilled with icing so I like that these look nice without any additional decorating!
