They´re made with almond flour and filled with raspberry jam. I used raspberry jam because it was the one I had on hand, but you can also use peach, plum, strawberry…

You can bake a batch or two because they freeze very well! Serve along with a coffee for a perfect afternoon tea.

Variations

I used raspberry jam because it was the one I had on hand, but you can also use strawberry, plum, peach… or any you prefer. You can make half one flavor and half another.

Sometimes I make these cookies with a homemade strawberry ginger jam https://almondyes.com/strawberry-ginger-jam/ and they are delicious.

Storing

The cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the fridge for 5 days. You can also freeze the cookies once they have cooled completely, in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to 3 months.
