Baking Success Or Baking Mess


1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg, room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cups hazelnut or almond flour
1/2 teaspoon Fleischmann's® Baking Powder
1/2 teaspoon fine salt
teaspoons orange zest
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 cup jam, for filling
Powdered sugar, to finish


In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment cream butter & sugar until fluffy.

Add the egg & vanilla extract. Beat until combined.

Sift in the flours, baking powder, salt, orange zest & nutmeg. Beat until dough comes together.

Shape into a disc, wrap in plastic wrap & refrigerate until firm. Once dough has chilled, preheat the oven to 350(f) degrees & line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to 1/4 inch thick.

Using your favourite cookie cutter shape, cut out dough & place 1/2 inch apart on the baking tray. Using an extra small cookie cutter, cut out a hole in half of the cookies.

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until golden around the edges.

Let cool before filling with jam & dusting with powdered sugar.
