Crescent cookies with jam and walnut


For the dough you will need:
225 g (1-3/4 cup) all purpose flour
1 large egg
120g (1 stick) butter, softened
60g (1/2 cup) confectioners sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder

For the filling:
1/2 cup ground walnuts
1/2 cup jam (traditionally apricot butter)

 Mix all ingredients for the dough and knead it util everything is well incorporated.

Take small pieces of the dough to fill your molds with a thin layer of dough.

  You need only a thin layer, as the dough will spread a little and you want to put filling inside.
 Bake at 375F for 8-10 minutes or until it has a light brown color.

 Let them cool enough so you can safely touch the mold and turn the molds upside down to remove the cookies. 

 Let the cookies cool completely before filling them.

 In a small bowl mix the walnut to the jam.

 Use a spoon to fill your cookies.

 Fill half of the cookies with the walnut and jam filling.

Stick the other cookies on top.

Sprinkle with confectioners sugar.

  
 Enjoy!
