Hey my dears,
The way to the heart is well known through the stomach. That’s why, due to Valentine’s Day, I not only created a recipe for ‘vegan ravioli hearts‘, but also made some delicious and vegan biscuits with a red jam filling.
I thought, maybe someone else needs a quick “last minute” gift idea ?!
I think home-baked cakes and biscuits are the best way to surprise our loved ones. And to make it even heartier, I made the filling in heart shape.
These biscuits do not only taste good on Valentine’s Day, but all year round. For example, to any coffee and tea party, you can always serve these sweet biscuits well. With that, you’ll definitely bring a smile to every guest‘s face. But also as a snack for in between or to take away, these biscuits are great.
The biscuits can be easily stored locked in a cookie jar at room temperature for about one week and even taste better the next day. I always find it convenient to have a few home-baked treats at home, because the store-bought ones usually contain not so great ingredients – either there are any additives or flavors or just too much sugar or animal products, such as eggs and butter.
So we prefer to bake ourselves! Then we know what is inside. Or what do you mean?
Let’s start with the recipe:
Delicious vegan biscuits with heart-shaped jam filling (Spitzbuben Cookies)
- 300 g light flour, spelt or wheat
- 50 g of ground almonds (I used peeled)
- 80 g of fine sugar
- a bit of ground bourbon vanilla
- some lemon zest
- 175 g margarine / vegan butter
- 3 tbsp soymilk
- 100 g jam (I used cherry-pomegranate)
- icing sugar for dusting
- First mix the flour, ground almonds, sugar, vanilla and lemon zest.
- Then knead with margarine / vegan butter and almond milk until a smooth dough is formed.
- Form the dough into a ball shape, wrap in cling film and let set in the fridge for about 1 hour.
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celsius.
- Remove the ball from the fridge and roll it out (approx. 3 mm thick) with a rolling pin on a flour-dusting surface.
- Cut out or shape cookies as desired. I made round circles.
- Cut out half of the biscuits with a smaller heart cookie cutter in the middle.
- Spread the biscuits on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for about 8-10 minutes. Then allow to cool.
- Heat the jam in a saucepan to make it more fluid.
- Spread a bit of jam on each bottom piece with a pastry brush and place the top piece with a heart on top. Then also fill up the hearts with jam.
- Leave to cool until the jam has become firm again, dust with icing sugar as desired and done!
