Try making them with your favorite jam.

Ingredients: about 15 cookies

50 g
Granulated sugar (for the dough)
7 g
Cake flour
60 g
Almond flour
20 g
Baking powder
1/4 teaspoon
★Granulated sugar (for sprinkling)
2/3 tablespoon
★Jam (any kind you like)
1 tablespoon


1. Put the jam (I used marmalade this time) in a bowl and mix well with a spoon to soften it.
2. Bring the butter to room temperature. Or you can put the butter in a dish, cover with plastic wrap, and microwave for about 20-30 seconds to soften. Then mix well with a whisk to cream the butter.
3. Add the 7 g of granulated sugar and mix well.
4. Sift the cake flour, almond flour, and baking powder into the bowl. Mix with a rubber spatula until the dough comes together.
5. Form the dough into a round ball.
6. Put the 2/3 tablespoon of the ★ granulated sugar in a dish. Roll the dough into 1.5 cm balls and place them in the dish of sugar.
7. Roll the balls of dough in the granulated sugar and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
8. Press lightly with your finger to make an indentation in each cookie.
9. Using a small spoon or a teaspoon, spoon some of the softened jam from Step 1 into the indentations in each cookie.
10. Bake in a preheated 180ºC oven for 13-15 minutes.
11. Right after baking, the cookies will be very soft, so leave them on the baking sheet to cool. They're done.
