Hilda rolls (German: Hildabrötchen) are German sandwich cookies filled with jam. They are very similar to, and perhaps interchangeable with, Linzer cookies.
Ingredients[edit | edit source]
- 300 g all-purpose flour, sifted
- 110 g sugar
- 1 package vanilla sugar
- 1 egg
- 150 g butter
- 125 g powdered sugar
- 2 spoons water
- 2 tablespoons jam
Procedure[edit | edit source]
- Knead the flour, butter, sugar, vanilla sugar, and egg into a dough. Chill for a while.
- Roll out the dough to about ¼ cm thick.
- Cut round cookies out of the dough. For half the cookies, cut a small shape out of the middle—these will be the tops.
- Place the cookies on a greased tray and bake at 150°C for about 20 minutes. Let cool.
- Combine the powdered sugar and water to make a smooth icing. Carefully dip the top cookies in the icing to coat one face.
- Spread some jam on the bottom layer cookies. Top with the iced cutout cookies.
