Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
assembling and decorating 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours 22 minutes
Servings 35 sandwich cookies

Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 Tbsp bitter cocoa powder
  • 5 Tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 yolk
  • 16 Tbsp butter, room temperature
  • 1 Tbsp milk, optional
  • Marshmallow cream and red currant jam to assemble cookies

  1. On flat,clean working surface, combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, yolk, and butter. If you will knead the leftovers again, you need 1 tablespoon of milk to keep the dough soft for another rectangular layer.

  2. Prepare two baking sheets and cover them with parchment paper. Leave aside.

  3. Preheat the oven to 180 C / 356 F.

  4. Roll out one half of the dough to get 3 mm thick rectangular. Cut the shapes and transfer them on the baking sheet. Be extra careful with the upper part and separate the dough from the cutter using toothpick.

  5. Since there is no baking powder in the dough, you may place your cutouts close one to another before baking.

  6. Bake one tray for 12 minutes, take it out and insert another.

  7. Once the cookies are cold, assemble them combining marshmallow cream and raspberry jam to get sweet but tangy flavours of filling.

  8. Once you assemble all the cookies, dust them with powdered sugar according to your taste.
