Christmas cookies: Bull's eye poppy-seed biscuits

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)

140 g icing sugar
sieve and mix with
330 g soft butter
1 pinch of salt
1 untreated orange, grated peel
mark of 1 vanilla bean
stir and add
400 g flour
sieve the flour on top of the dough, add
140 g ground poppy-seeds
sir, knead to a smooth dough, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate over night
quarter the dough, shape into rolls of 25 cm in length and cut into 1 cm long pieces, form balls, place on a baking tray lined with baking paper
press hollows into the biscuits with a wooden spoon, place them in a cold place for 30 minutes and bake at 160° C for 12 minutes

Filling & decoration

200 g elderberries or currant jelly
gently warm
2 TS icing sugar
sprinkle the cooled cookies with icing sugar and fill it with the liquid jelly

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.

„Too good for the bin“ is a German campaign against food waste. Health food magazine „Schrot & Korn“ [whole grain & corn] made a competition in their September issue: Topic was the use of old or stale bread. The authors of the two best recipes had been invited to visit this year’s book fair in Frankfurt to cook their recipes in the show kitchen of the „Gourmet Gallery“ together with bio-leading chef Christian Kolb. I won this trip with my recipe of an onion bread soup!
