Holiday shortbread cookies with quince apples



    400 g of flour
    100 g of potato starch 
    200 g of sugar
    250 g of butter
    2 eggs
    1/2 packet of vanillin
    1/2 packet of yeast
    Lemon flavouring

    Quince apple preserve

    Icing sugar


Mix the two flours together and place them in the shape of a fountain on the work top. Make a crater and fill it with the sugar, butter, eggs, vanillin, yeast and lemon flavouring. Blend these ingredients together and then knead them into a smooth dough starting from the center, without kneading it too much.

Let it rest in a fresh place for at least half an hour. Roll the dough out to a thickness of ½ cm and cut out apple shapes with a cutter.

With a smaller cutter cut out a circle from the center of half the cookies. Place all of the cookies on a greased and floured or baking paper-lined tin.

Bake in the oven preheated to 180°C for 10 minutes. Let them cool and then spread some quince apple preserve on the whole cookies and place the ones with the hole in the middle over the preserve.

Dust them with icing sugar.
