Lovers' Cookies


Serves: 30 cookies
Total time: 45 min
Thermomix: 2 min

Ingredients

290 g flour
125 g sugar
125 g butter
1 egg
A pinch of salt
100 g of transparent hard fruit candy (color selected according to your wishes)
Two heart-shaped cookie cutters of different sizes

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 375°F
2. Place the hard candy in a clean and dry mixing bowl. Grind 5 sec/speed 10 then move the contents of the bowl through a fine strainer to keep only the contents of the candy powder and remove any remaining pieces. (see tips) Set aside.
3. Place the egg and sugar in the mixing bowl. Mix 1 min/speed 3.
4. Add flour, butter and salt and mix 1 min/speed 4, possibly helping with the spatula through the lid's hole. 
5. Form a ball and protect it with plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 20 minutes.
6. Spread the dough on a floured surface or between two sheets of parchment paper. Cut hearts (see photo) and place on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Complete the cookies by filling the hollow center of each heart with candy powder prepared in Step 2 (see photo).
7. Bake 10 minutes at 375°F in a pre-heated over. 
8. Allow the cookies to cool before handling them. Let the caramel candy harden.
9. With the remaining cookie dough, make a dough roll, slice biscuits, possibly decorate with small sugar hearts (see photo) or powder candy and also cook for 10 minutes at 375°F in a pre-heated oven.


Tips and Variation(s)

  • For this recipe you'll need transparent hard candy or Christmas sweets as used in the recipe. They should not be soft or filled-candies.
  • In step 2, it is preferable to mix only 5 sec and having to pass the result to the strainer, rather than mix longer because the heat will make the candy powder stick to the bottom of the mixing bowl.
  • When cutting with the cookie cutter, it is possible to use a straw to make a hole that, after baking, will allow us to slip a ribbon and suspend or tie the lovers' cookies.
