When I was just starting to get used to the family kitchen, it was my honorable duty to cook the simplest Viennese cookies, since only this delicacy did not require baking experience or any special knowledge from the culinary specialist. Very tasty and delicate, it is suitable for everyone who wants to quickly get sweets for tea at home, without standing in the kitchen for hours.

Today I still make the famous Viennese cookies with jam, which my children really like, and I use the same step-by-step recipe from my grandmother's notebook. I decided to share this experience with dear readers, since there is hardly a person who would not like small sweet treats, but there are not so many suitable recipes on the Web.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Mix the flour with baking powder and salt.
  2. Then we sift it through a sieve at least three times.
  3. Melt the butter in a water bath to a liquid state.
  4. Important! In addition to a water bath, there is an option to melt butter in a microwave or multicooker, or simply on the stove in a small iron bowl (in this case, set the heat to low and stir the butter in the process).
  5. Then we put it in a cool place to cool down.
  6. Assembly
  7. Fill the eggs with melted butter and sugar.
  8. Stir with a whisk and whisk at medium speed.
  9. Add a third of the flour while continuing to beat.
  10. Then we remove the device and, adding the remaining flour, manually knead the dough.
  11. Did you know? Your dough should be solid, easy to roll into a ball and not stick to your hands or bowl. If it turns out that it is still watery, add a little more flour and knead the mixture well again. Try not to add flour with tablespoons, but only with teaspoons, because it is better to suffer a little and make the perfect dough than to get hard as a stone, cookies at the end.
  12. Bakery products
  13. Carefully cover the baking sheet with baking paper, level the edges.
  14. We cut off about a third of the total mass of the dough and send it to the freezer.
  15. Spread the remaining dough without a rolling pin over the baking sheet to the very sides.
  16. At the same time, we try to make the layer as flat as possible and not thicker than 5 mm.
  17. Cover the top layer evenly with jam or pitted jam.
  18. Important! If your jam is too runny, add a tablespoon of corn starch or potato starch to it, then stir. If there is no starch, manually blind the edges of the layer with low sides so that the jam does not spread.
  19. After that, take out the dough from the freezer, which should already harden.
  20. We rub it with a coarse grater directly on the jam, distributing the powder over the entire layer.
  21. Let the workpiece stand a little at room temperature.
  22. We set up the oven to heat up to 200 degrees.
  23. Place the prepared cookie cutter on the middle wire rack
  24. We bake for about 20 minutes, then visually check for readiness.
  25. As soon as the top layer of the dough has acquired a slightly ruddy color, remove the baking sheet from the oven.
  26. While still hot, cut the layer into cookies with a sharp knife.
