Sorry guys, before I will start to publish my British Favourites… I just want to share some Swedish cakes and cookies I have baked today (hope it’s ok with you). You already have seen the cookies with the Strawberry Marmalade on. I just wanted to show you a picture with ones that have got Pear and Blueberry Marmalade on. 😀
Recipe (makes 18)
- 150 gr butter
- ½ dl sugar
- 1 egg yolk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
- 3 dl plain flour
Brushing and decoration
- egg white
- pearl sugar
- 1 tablespoons with St. Dalfour’s pear marmalade
- 1 tablespoon with St. Dalfour’s wild blueberry marmalade
Stir the butter and sugar until fluffy.
Add the egg yolk and vanilla. Work the flour quickly into the mixture. Shape the dough into a 40 cm long roll.
Let the roll rest in the fridge until it’s fixed.
Cut the roll into 2 cm thick slices. Roll each of them. Place the balls afterwards into paper cases on a baking sheet.
Press your thumb in the middle of each cookie to make a dimple. Brush them with the egg white and sprinkle with pearl sugar. Put some marmalade into the dimple.
Bake in middle of the oven at 200 degrees C, 15 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown.
