What's not to love about lemon curd?
Adapted from freundin special 23/2009
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
150 g butter, room temperature
75 g powdered sugar
pinch of salt
150 g ground almonds (without skin)
150 g flour
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon Limoncello
125 g lemon curd
1-2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- Beat vanilla, butter, and powdered sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and salt. Add almonds, flour, lemon zest and Limoncello and knead until you have a smooth dough. Let cool in fridge for about 1 hour.
- Preheat oven to 150°C (300°F). Roll out dough on a floured surface and cut out about 70 hearts (or any other shape). Cut out a smaller heart in the middle of half of the already cut out hearts (these will make the top ones later when you put them together). Bake for 10-12 minutes and let cool.
- Put a small amount of lemon curd on each bottom heart (without hole), put top hearts (with hole) on top. Dust with powdered sugar.
Very good! But they could be even more lemony. Maybe add a bit more lemon zest to the dough or even lemon juice instead of Limoncello?
