Cuor di mela- Apple filled cookies

apple cookies

I’m back with yet another really yummy recipe.

This will be my last post for a while, a little more than a month, as I will be finally, FINALLY leaving for my such awaited trip to Asia 😀

Lately I have been craving my favourite cookies from Mulino Bianco, cuor di mela. I swear, I always try my hardest and best not to buy them cuz they never last more than 10 minutes, and I’m talking a whole bag of them! Luckily I had all the necessary ingredients and tweaked a few to what I had in the house 😉

INGREDIENTS

Pastry:

250 gr plain flour

100gr cold cubed butter

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 egg

100 gr sugar

Filling:

2 red apples

20gr brown sugar

2 tbsp strawberry jam

1 tsp vanilla sugar (not necessary I just added it for a change)

For the pastry, put everything in a bowl and work until you manage to form a compact and evenly combined dough ball. Its extremely hot and and humid here in Brisbane right now, so when I would suggest, once you obtain the ball, the wrap it in cling film and put in the freezer to rest. I actually put it in a bowl with ice cubes on top and bottom in the freezer.

While the pastry is resting, cut the apples in small cubes. Put all the ingredients in a saucepan adding 2 tbsp of water and let cook for 15 mins. Once it’s done, pour in a dish to let it cool faster.

Turn oven on 180°. Get the pastry from the freezer, and flatten it and cut round with a glass or a cookie cutter. Fill some of the rounds with the cooked apple and use the other rounds to cover them and close with your fingers pressing on the sides.

Cut two slits on the very top, place the cookies on a parchment lined tray and bake for 15 mins or wait for the sides to slightly brown.

They seem a bit pale but as long as they are cooked it’s fine, you want to avoid eating raw dough!
