Variations and Substitutions
The use of almond flour in this recipe will give it an extra layer of flavor, added texture, and a nutty taste. If you like to use other nuts, feel free to do so. You can use hazelnut instead. Roast and ground them as fine as the almond flour. However, if you are allergic to nuts, you can make it 100% all-purpose flour.
In terms of filling, there are tons of varieties to choose from. You can make your own combination of fruits and use raspberries, apricots, or strawberries. You can also try hazelnut spread, dates, dried fruits and nuts. Make them in advance and serve them in assorted flavors and shapes that kids will definitely love.
Let’s Make It Vegan
This cookie recipe can also also be vegan-friendly. Turn these to vegan by using vegan butter instead, replace eggs with flaxseed, and you have one nice holiday cookie in no time.
Almond Sandwich Cookies with Orange Marmalade Filling
- 150 g Almond flour
- 250 g flour
- 1 pinch salt
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 200 g softened butter
- 80 g sugar
- 1 egg at room temperature
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 200 g orange marmalade
- powdered sugar for dusting
- Start by preheating the oven to 350° F.
- Combine almond flour, all-purpose flour, salt, and baking powder until well combined.
- Use the paddle attachment on your stand mixer to beat softened butter and sugar for about five minutes. Then add the egg and vanilla, and mix until thoroughly combined.
- Add the dry ingredients and stir until a dough forms. Shape the dough into a disk, wrap it in plastic film, and chill for two hours or overnight.
- Prepare about 3 baking sheets and line them with parchment paper. To cut out shapes, roll out the dough to a thickness of about 4 mm, and use my Linzer cookie cutters to cut the shapes.
- Allow the precut cookies to sit on the baking sheets and freeze for a couple of minutes before baking them.
- Remove from the oven after 8 minutes and let cool on the cookie sheet.
- Take two matching halves. Spread some orange marmalade onto the bottom half of your cookie and sandwich them together. Dust the tops with icing sugar.
You can rotate the baking sheet after 4 minutes to stop the cookies on the back from browning excessively. The cookies shouldn't brown too much.
