Healthy, because

Even smarter

Thumbprints are classic cookies that should not be missing on any cookie plate. That these are not super-healthy is something everyone should be aware of. Nevertheless, we have made this clasic Linzer Augen a little healthier by using flour type 1050, ground hazelnuts and less sugar. These ingredients provide fiber for a healthy intestine and high-quality fatty acids for good arteries.

You can replace the ground hazelnuts with ground almonds, then the rogue recipe is quite classic. 


14 ⅘ ozs Pastry flour
7 ⅖ ozs sugar
2 tsps Vanilla sugar
1 pinch salt
4 ½ ozs ground Hazelnuts
½ lemon
9 ozs butter
2 small eggs
7 ozs Raspberry jam
powdered sugar (for dusting)
How healthy are the main ingredients?

Preparation steps


Mix together flour, sugar, vanilla sugar, salt and hazelnuts in a bowl. Zest the lemon and add zest to the mixture. Melt butter. Add melted butter and eggs to the mixture to form a dough. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and let rest at least 30 minutes in the refrigerator.


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


Roll out dough to approximately 1/10 inch thick and cut out cookies using a crimped circle cookie cutter. Cut a small circle (1/3 inch) in the center of half the cookies. Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes until light golden brown. Allow to cool on a wire rack.


Meanwhile, heat raspberry jam. Spread jam on the whole cookies, topping each with a cookie that has the center removed to create a sandwich. Cool cookies completely and allow to dry for 1-2 hours. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and serve.
