All cookies already eaten up? Bull’s-eye poppy seed biscuits
December 3rd, 2017 | Süßes
This year’s first advent coffee party and all cookies already eaten up? Now rescue is at hand: Bull’s-eye poppy seed biscuits are good looking and can be filled with various red jellies – just what you find in your store: currant or grape jelly for example. My personal favourite is elderberry jelly to fill them.
Christmas cookies: Bull's eye poppy-seed biscuits
(Note: the dough needs to rest overnight! Makes about 100 pieces)
Filling & decoration
That’s how the wife of the Captain does it:
I use a freezer bag with a cut off corner to fill the cookies. This way the jelly can be easily and precisely applied.

Monkfish – an extraordinary fish dish
Monkfish is generally a delicacy, no question. In this recipe the solid fish comes with black, sea-aromatic spaghetti. Together with the tomato sauce, which is deglazed with vodka and refined with vanilla, the plate convinces by strong, bright colors, phantastic flavors, bite-proof fish and very special pasta – all topped off with a little fresh mint. A feast for all senses!read more
Finally, a side dish that also works on the grill: Salsa Verde Potatoes replace the classic grill companion, the French bread. Anchovies, capers and olives give great flavour, and fresh herbs add the ultimate kick. Whether the pan is on the stove or the grill in the end is irrelevant to the taste.read more
