Cookies with almonds, oranges and jam

Cookies with almonds, oranges and jam

Put the almonds in the oven for 6 or 7 minutes so that they have a reddish tinge. Then cool and mix in a blender.

Soft butter is mixed with flour, sugar, then almonds, orange juice, salt powder, orange peel and vanilla. A ball of dough is formed.

Let the dough cool for 30 minutes.

Remove it, divide it in two and each piece of not very thin stretches, then cut shapes, press with your finger in the middle where the jam is placed.

Bake for about 15 or 20 minutes at 180 degrees. as the oven heats up very much, it is possible that the baking time will decrease at the second tray, so be careful not to burn them.

It is kept for about a week in tin boxes (if possible) and wrapped in cake paper (if the children do not devour them in the meantime) ... :))))


These cookies are a great taste. Try to make them.

for the dough:
flour & # 8211 225 gr
cold butter & # 8211 150 gr
egg yolk & # 8211 1 pc.
ground almonds & # 8211 50 gr
baking powder & # 8211 1 teaspoon
for the filling:
gem & # 8211 3-4 tablespoons
crushed almonds & # 8211 10 gr
for decoration:
black chocolate

Sift the flour and mix it with the baking powder, the cold butter cut into pieces, the ground almonds and the egg yolk. Knead well to obtain a homogeneous dough, which we wrap in cling film and let cool for 1 hour.

When it has hardened quite well, take the dough out of the fridge, break small pieces from it and shape rolls with a diameter of 1.5 cm. We cut the roll into 6 cm pieces, to which we give a rectangular shape with the help of a ruler. Arrange spaced on an oven tray, lined with baking paper. With the help of a teaspoon we make cavities along the length, leaving borders at the ends (see image).

Fill the cavities with magiun (I used apricot magiun) and press with crushed almonds.

Put in the preheated oven (180 degrees) for only 10-15 minutes (we follow the process anyway). When the cookies turn golden, remove the tray from the oven and let it cool.
Meanwhile, melt a few squares of dark chocolate in the steam bath, pour it into a baking paper croissant, the top of which has been cut and decorate our cookies.

Ingredient Flourless Cake With Oranges

  • 2 oranges, around 300-320 grams
  • 240 grams of almond flour (I used flakes that I ground as finely as I could in the electric coffee machine)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 220 grams of sugar
  • optional: 2 tablespoons of almond flakes, if you choose to give up the cream

if you opt for the cream version, you also need the following:

  • 400 grams of Philadelphia cheese
  • 250 grams of whipped cream
  • powdered sugar to taste
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • decoration: 1 tablespoon lightly browned almond flakes in the pan, 1 tablespoon finely chopped candied orange peel, mint leaves

Preparing Flourless Cake With Oranges And Philadelphia Cream

Orange preparation

1. The ingredients for the flourless cake with oranges are quite simple. It's quite difficult for me to buy almond flour, but I do well with the almond flakes that I grind as finely as possible when grinding for coffee. Oranges & # 8230 are their season, it's a shame not to take advantage.

2. Wash the whole oranges well, rubbing the peel with a clean sponge. Put in a pot with cold water (2-3 liters of water, to bathe the oranges at will). Put the pot on the fire. Bring the water to a boil and after 15 minutes the oranges are removed with a whisk. The water is thrown away. Repeat the procedure 3 times, so that the bitterness contained in the oranges disappears. After the last boil for 15 minutes, let the oranges cool. Cut into pieces and clean as much of the seeds as possible.

Preparing the composition with oranges

3. Turn on the oven and set it at 180 ° C. Boiled oranges are processed with a blender until a puree is obtained.

Only now are we starting to actually take care of the basic composition for our flourless cake with oranges. Ouale is separated. Put the egg whites in a large bowl, well degreased. Mix the yolks separately with half the sugar until a light cream is formed. Add over the yolks the orange puree & # 8211 from which I kept 2 tablespoons to flavor the cream & # 8211 and almond powder. Homogenize with the mixer at low speed.

4. Whisk the egg whites together with the salt. Add the remaining sugar, gradually, beating vigorously until a firm meringue is formed and the sugar is completely dissolved. 1/3 of the meringue is mixed with the yolks with oranges and almonds. The whole composition is poured over the rest of the foam egg whites and homogenized with a flexible spatula, permanently raising the composition from the bottom of the bowl to the surface, so that the air accumulated in the egg whites is not lost, this being the only & # 8222 growth agent & # 8221 our flourless cake with oranges.


5. Pour the composition for the flour-free cake into a form greased with butter and lined with flour (or lined with baking paper). Level well. A shape of 22-24 cm is suitable. diameter. If you opted for the cream-free version, sprinkle 2 tablespoons of almond flakes on top of the dough. Put the cake in the preheated oven at 180 degrees and bake for 50-55 minutes, until it passes the toothpick test. If a clean toothpick is inserted into the cake, it must be clean when it comes out. If it has sticky marks, it means that the cake is not ready. After 20-25 minutes, the cake can be lightly covered with an aluminum foil or a sheet of moistened baking paper, so as not to burn on the surface.

Cream preparation

6. While my flourless cake cooled, I prepared the cream: I mixed the Philadelphia cheese until it became creamy, then I gradually added the whipped cream and beat with the mixer on high speed until a frothy composition was formed. I added the preserved orange puree, vanilla extract and 4 tablespoons of powdered sugar. For my taste it was enough, if you like sweeter you can supplement the amount of sugar.

7. After the flourless cake has cooled, I cover it with philadelphia cream in a generous layer. I sprinkled lightly browned almond flakes in the pan, candied orange peel and fresh mint leaves.

I can't tell you what a pleasant and refreshing taste, what a lovely texture this flourless cake with oranges has! Maybe the section in the image below will tell you more than I can.

We enjoyed this wonderful cake and we wrapped a third of it and gave it to a child. He is not a child with a difficult family situation, only with a mother who is too busy to make homemade cakes. It's a gesture I often make, but this time I decided to join the campaign of the girls from Savori Urbane, one of the most beautiful that the Romanian online has seen, it's about Cakes for the neighboring child (click on the link for details).
