    My Private Note



    terrace ...

    Units: US | Metric



    • 1/2-1 cup jam



    1. 1
      Press the four hard-boiled egg yolks through a sieve and set aside.
    2. 2
      Put the first four ingredients into food processor.
    3. 3
      Cut cold butter into pieces and add to the flour mixture. Mix in food processor until pea sized clumps are formed.
    4. 4
      Add hard-boiled and raw egg yolks and mix until large clumps are formed. Don't overmix dough. Take dough out of food processor and knead a few times to form the dough. Wrap dough in foil and put in the fridge for at least 15 minutes.
    5. 5
      Meanwhile preheat oven (390 F, 200 C). Grease a baking tray.
    6. 6
      Take dough out of the fridge and divide into portions you can handle. Knead the dough a few times.
    7. 7
      Flour the workspace and the dough very lightly and roll out thin (like a back of a knife) using a rolling pin.
    8. 8
      Cut out cookies using cookies forms. To make the terrace cookies you need a "large", a "medium" and a "small" cookie form of the same shape. If you don't have cookie forms in different sizes, you can cut out cookies with a knife.
    9. 9
      Bake cookies for 7-10 minutes. Baking time depends on your oven. Cookies should be lightly brown (don't overbake them).
    10. 10
      Let cool cookies completey on a cooling rack.
    11. 11
      Meanwhile heat up the jam on low heat so that it gets a little more fluid.
    12. 12
      Make the terrace cookies: put a little of the jam on the underside of the medium sized cookie and put on the large one. Put a little jam on the small cookie and put on the medium one. Dust with caster sugar.
    13. 13
      Store cookies in an airtight cookie box.
    14. 14
      NOTE: The number of cookies depends on the size of your cookie forms and how thin you roll out the dough. So my number is just a vague guess.
    15. 15
      NOTE: Baking/cooking time is given for one baking tray.

      I made this today but used heart-shaped cutters. I had some trouble with assembly but figured it out in the end. Very tasty but I am finding it hard to save some for tomorrow.
