I definitely have those feels. And if you don’t have all the deserts and cookies planned out yet, here’s a simple recipe for tasty little treats that are also gonna brighten up your holiday table. These are great to make in advance, as they can keep for weeks stored in an airtight container.

METHOD:

In a bowl whisk together dry ingredients. Add in cubed butter, egg and vanilla and using your fingers form smooth dough. Flatten the dough into a disc, wrap in cling foil and refrigerate for at least an hour.

When ready to bake, allow the dough to loosen for 5 minutes at room temperature so it’s easier to work with. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Roll out the dough on a well-floured work surface and cut into desired shapes while cutting small holes in half of the cookies. Spread the cookies on prepared baking sheet and bake for 6 minutes. The cookies will get lighter in shade, but don’t let them start browning. Allow the cookies to sit for 5 minutes on a baking sheet then transfer them on a wire rack to cool off completely.

To assemble the cookie sandwiches, spread jam on cookies without a hole and toss the half with a hole in caster sugar. Carefully assemble the two together and store cookies in an airtight container in a dry and cool place for later. Or serve them right away if you are so inclined.

Jeste li svjesni činjenice da je Božić za manje od tjedan dana?! Naravno da jeste, mislim, svi imamo kalendare. Ali, stvarno, ne čini vam se kao da su nam se blagdani jednostavno prišuljali? Ja definitivno imam takav osjećaj. A ako već niste isplanirali do kraja koje ćete kekse i kolače raditi, evo vam jedan jednostavan recept za male poslastice koje će baš fino razveseliti blagdanski stol. Ovi keksići se mogu napraviti i unaprijed, jer drže i par tjedana ako ih čuvate u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 25 – 30 keksa / 16,41 kn za sve)

Za tijesto:

8 velikih žlica glatkog brašna (0,50 kn)

4 velikih žlica kukuruznog škroba (1,00 kn)

4 velikih žlica šećera u prahu (0,40 kn)

Prstohvat soli (0,01 kn)

125 g maslaca, na sobnoj temperaturi (7,50 kn)

1 jaje (1,50 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

Za složiti kekse:

Pekmez po izboru (5,00 kn)

Šećer u prahu (0,20 kn)

Dodatno:

Brašno za posipanje (0,10 kn)

PRIPREMA:

U zdjeli pomiješajte suhe sastojke. Dodajte maslac narezan na kockice, jaje i vaniliju te rukama umijesite glatko tijesto. Spljoštite tijesto u disk, zamotajte u prijanjajuću foliju i stavite u frižider na barem sat vremena.

Kada ste spremni za pečenje, izvadite tijesto iz frižidera na 5 minuta da se malo otpusti i da vam bude lakše s njim raditi. Zagrijte pećnicu na 200°C. Obložite protvan papirom za pečenje i stavite na stranu. Razvaljajte tijesto na dobro pobrašnjenoj radnoj plohi i režite u željene oblike, a polovicu keksa napravite s rupom. Raširite kekse na pripremljenom protvanu i pecite 6 minuta. Keksići će pobijeliti kako se peku, ali pazite da ne počnu tamniti. Pustite ih 5 minuta da odstoje na protvanu i onda preselite na rešetku da se ohlade do kraja.

Da napravite keksić sendviče, polovice bez rupe premažite pekmezom, a polovice s rupom uvaljajte u šećer u prahu, pa pažljivo spojite kekse. Čuvajte keksiće u hermetički zatvorenoj posudi na suhom i hladnom mjestu. Ili ih poslužite odmah, ako ste tako raspoloženi.
