[Last minute idea] Mother’s day cookies

It’s time for Mother’s Day! A whole day celebrating and honoring the most important woman in our life. The woman, who gave birth to us, was with us when we were making our first steps and mistakes. Mum, our guide through life, who is always there for us. Therefore it’s fair enough to have a whole day for saying your mum how much you love her!

I tried to express my love with a nice self-made present and of course some cookies. These sweeties are topped with a fruity marmelde filling and a marzipan crown! Just in case you need a last minute present idea, what do you think about these?

Directions:

  1. Prepare baking sheets. Preheat oven to 200°C.
  2. In a bowl knead together the flour, butter, sugar, salt and the egg. Roll dough out and cut out hearts or any other shape you like and put them on your baking sheets.
