谢谢美女的好介绍哦!
 These cookies are filled with strawberry  jam, taste slightly sweet-sour and with the lovely aroma of lemon zest. They will definitely brighten your day!

建议吃时才搽果酱, 这样可以保持饼干酥脆度。
Strawberry Sandwich Cookies 草莓酱夹饼
(Recipe adapted from: Butter.Flour & Me,  Eileen Dairy)

Ingredients
90g Butter (at room temperature) 
50g Brown sugar
125g Cake flour/low protein flour (sifted)
3/4 tsp Baking powder
15g Ground almond
1/2 tsp Lemon zest (I used one lemon)
1/2 tsp Vanilla essence

Filling
Strawberry jam (I used organic strawberry spread)

Dusting
Confectioners' sugar for dusting

Method :
  1. Beat butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Add in lemon zest and vanilla essence, mix  to combine.
  2. Add in ground almond, cake flour & baking powder mix on low speed until the dough comes together in a mass.
  3. Dump the dough out onto your work surface and shape into a flat disk. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  4. Roll the dough out between 2 pieces of paper wrap, about 3 mm thickness, half of the dough cut with a flower shaped cookie cutter (for bottom).
  5. Another half of dough, cut with the same flower shaped cookie cutter, then cut the center of each cookies with a smaller flower-shaped cutter (or any other shape).
  6. Place cookies on an baking sheet.
  7. Bake in preheated oven at 170C for 15- 20 minutes, until the edges begin to brown.
  8. Allow the cookies to cool to room temperature.
  9. Dust the cut out cookies with confectioners' sugar and spread strawberry jam on each cookie. 
  10. Sandwich your cookies together.

** These cookies are crispy, but once they are filled with the jam they start to soften. So if you want the cookies to stay crisp, fill them with the jam the day of serving.
