Little Plum Packets

Pflaumenpäckchen Its already the third advent and I still did not post a single Christmas cookie recipe! I have to change this immediately!

But until now I bake the traditional cookies in our family: Vanilla crescents, Liebesgrübchen, Black and white Kisses and Linzer Rings. But in the December Magazine of “Schrot and Korn” there were a cookie recipe that temped me very much. Little Plum Packets a butter cookie filled with plum butter and ground nuts.

They looked very complicated but when I read the recipe I realise that they are much easier to do the I thought. You just has to cut out stars, place a little bit of the filling in the middle and fold the pointed ends of the star over the filling and close everything with a hazelnut.

The cookies are great: a soft fruit and nut filling with hints of vanilla and cinnamon. I like them very much!

    Ich glaube, ich kenne diese leckeren Teilchen unter einem anderen Namen. Dreieckshut, oder so. Da wird auch keine Haselnuss als Deko benutzt. Deswegen sieht es wie ein Hut aus.

      @Manu: Meinst du Dreispitz-Kekse? Die werden, glaube ich, aus einem Kreis gemacht, dessen Seiten zusammen gedrückt werden – auch sehr hübsch. Diese hier sehen durch die schmalen Spitzen des Sterns schon anders aus.
