200g butter

100g powdered sugar

300g flour

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ cup milk

Strawberry jam


Mix flour, salt and powdered sugar in a food processor. Add butter and process in short pulses to a crumbly mixture. Transfer to a bowl and gradually add milk, until a soft dough is obtained.

Wrap in plastic wrap and put in the fridge to set for an hour or two.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Roll out the dough on lightly floured baking paper to a ½cm thick sheet. Cut into shapes and place on a tray lined with baking paper – half with a hole in the middle and half without. 

Bake for 10-12 minutes until the cookies start to turn golden. Cool completely. Sprinkle powdered sugar generously over the cookies with the hole in the center. Fill the whole cookie with spoonful of jam. Put a cookie with powdered sugar (and a hole) on top of each bottom with jam to get a sandwich. Store in a single layer in an airtight container at room temperature.
