my favourite cookies ever – you need:

dough: 200 g flour – 75 g corn starch – 1 teaspoon backingpowder – salt – 1 egg – 150 g butter

filling: 1 orange – 100 g ground almonds/or marzipan – 75 g icing-sugar

knead into a soft and smooth dough and chill for at least 2 hours – while chilling the dough, prepare filling: mix the almonds or marzipan with the icing-sugar and add the juice of the orange until it is a smooth spread (careful, you don’t want it to be too liquid, otherwise you have to keep adding almonds and suger)

after chilling the dough, roll it out and cut out round pieces (approx. ø 5-6 cm) – put half a teaspoon of the filling onto each round and fold it in half, carefully closing the edges with your fingers

bake at 200° C for 15-20 minutes – take out and let cool

melt some dark chocolate and drip it over the finished cookies to give them an extra-special taste – they are best after a couple of days, when the aroma had time to exude
