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.
