One thought on “Wordless Wednesday: Just Three More Days”

  1. Somebody asked on Facebook for the recipe of the cookies. Here it is:
    500g Flour, 250g Butter, 250g Sugar, 2 Eggs, 1 package Vanilla Sugar (or 1 tsp Vanilla Extract). Mix like shortbread (cut in butter, knead everything together as quickly as possible). Cut out cookies, large + same size rings (large cookie cutter + small one). Bake at 200°C (400°F) for 8-12 minutes or until done. Glue together with dark red jelly or strained jam (these ones are black currant jelly, but I’ve used grape or red currant jelly too; you could also use a raspberry jam with the seeds strained out. Point is you want the colour contrast). Sift icing sugar over top. Keep in tins, carefully guard from marauding hordes. 🙂
    Oh, and they’re called Spitzbuben (cheeky boys) or Prinzesschen (little princesses). Another way to do them is to cut out large, medium and small ones and triple-decker stack them; that’s the proper Spitzbuben.
