Juhuuu... I'm in baking mood on this holiday seasons. Maybe because I miss the smells of cinnamon, ginger etc.. or I just had a lot of energy since my return from Rehabilitation centre in Goldegg a few weeks ago. I don't know. And it isn't important to find the reasons, I think.
I always wanted to use "dinkel wheat" (spelt) for baking cause I've heard that it is healty. I was searching on net and found some recipes. But the recipe below is my own variation and I hope you will like the cookies as much as I do.
250 g dinkel-wheat
50 g ground almond
125 g butter (room temperature)
100 g cane sugar
1 whole egg
1 tbs cocoa powder
a pinch of cinnamon powder, salt and baking powder
for garnish: icing sugar or white chocolate
Beat the butter and sugar until pfluffy, add eggs, continue beating. Mix dinkel-wheat, cocoa, almond and all other ingredients except marmalade. Put this mixture into egg-butter. Knead the dough, round it and wrap with plastic foil, resting it for about 30 minutes.
Roll the dough and form it using cookies cutter (for example a star or other form). Bake for about 15 minutes (160°C). Cool them down. Take one cookie, put a little bit orange marmalade and take another cookie, stick them together. Make with the rest of the cookies. If finish you can garnish them with icing sugar or white chocolate. Store them in air-tight container.
And I wish u all the happines of this wonderful time of the year. And stay healthy, guys! :-)
