Ingredients (5 servings)

  • 330 gr Flour
  • 130 gr Caster sugar
  • 130 gr Soft butter
  • 3 Small eggs
  • 5Table spoons strawberry jam
  • 2 Table spoons icing sugar.

Directions

  1. Put flour, sugar, soft butter in a bowl. Break eggs and add them. Knead until pastry is smooth (about 10 minutes)
  2. Flatten it with your hands on a plastic wrap, pack it and put it in freezer for 30 minutes
  3. Once cooled down, roll it out . It must be about 2 mm thick. Don’t forget before rolling it out to sprinkle a bit flour on your work surface to avoid pastry to stick
  4. Preheat oven to 180°
  5. Place grease proof paper on baking sheet
  6. Cut up pastry with a 10 cm diameter pastry cutter. You should get 8 pieces
  7. Place them on the baking sheet. Cut up again 4 of them with a 2,5 diameter pastry cutter and make 3 holes on each. If your pastry cutters are two large or two small, don’t worry you will just make more or less holes
  8. Bake it for 15 min
  9. Once cooled down outside oven, sprinkle icing sugar on the 4 with holes. It must be totally covered with icing sugar
  10. Place a table spoon strawberry jam in the middle of the plain pieces, and cover with each sugared white top (grab on sides to avoid fingerprints)
  11. Jam should overflow from holes
  12. Yum, what a delight…
