With such an unusual appearance, I hasten to reassure that the process is not complicated and you only need to follow the recipe and step-by-step instructions. And so, let's get started ...

Cookies with apple and jam filling detailed recipe

Combine flour, sugar and a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl. Next, add softened butter and swirl on a mixer until the dough begins to crumble.

Further, without ceasing to scroll, in a small stream, enter about 1/3 cup of water and knead until a homogeneous elastic mass. Warming up, roll it into a ball. We cover with polyethylene and send to the refrigerator for 20 minutes.

After a while, as the dough has cooled, you should sprinkle flour on a cutting board and use a rolling pin to roll out the dough into a thin layer, about 3-5 mm.

Further, with a special mold or with the help of a glass, circles of a small diameter, about 5-6 mm, will need to be cut out of the dough.

The next step is to prepare the filling: peel the apples, remove the core and cut into small pieces. Place in a deep bowl, sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and stir.

On half of each cut piece, set wooden skewers in the center so that the upper tip of the sticks not only does not lick, but should also be slightly lower so that it is convenient to press down the edges of the dough.

After the skewers have been installed, put the thick jam or jam and a little apple filling with cinnamon strictly in the center.

And only then, on top of everything, carefully cover with another piece of exactly the same dough and lightly crush the edges with your fingers.

In order to better fix the dough so that the filling does not fall out, and of course, to give a stylish effect to baking, you should pinch the edges with a broken skewer.

Place kitchen paper on a baking sheet and lay out the cooked items in a layer. In a small cup, beat down the egg yolk with one teaspoon of milk and grease the baking surface.

We send to the preheated oven. Cook at 180 degrees until golden brown, about 20 minutes or more.

When ready, let cool and dust with icing sugar.

As a result, baking turns out to be soft, moderately crumbly. The cookies just melt in your mouth. Something will even resemble pies only with a sweet filling. In short, you should try it!
