If the dough is very sticky, add a little flour. If it’s too dry and crumbly add few drops of water gradually until you get a dough that’s easy to work with.

7 oz / 200 gr. cold butter
3.5 oz / 100 gr. sugar
2 egg yolks
1.8 oz / 50 gr. almond powder
8.8 oz / 250 gr. flour
1 Tablespoon sesame seeds
Cut the butter into cubes and transfer to the mixer. Beat until creamy and smooth. Add the sugar and mix together until you get a smooth mixture. Add the egg yolks one by one, mixing each until it is blended completely before adding the next one. Add the dry ingredients and mix slowly until the dough comes together. Form the dough into a flat circle, cover and place in the fridge for half an hour.
Knead the dough on a well floured surface and cut your cookies. If you want jam cookies, choose one shape and for half the amount cut a circle (or other shape) out of the center. Transfer to a baking pan and bake 12 minutes or until cookies are golden.
Dust the` holes cookies` with a generous amount of powdered sugar. Spread a teaspoon of jam on each one of the `whole cookies`.
Connect every two cookies together, pressing gently and keep in a closed container.
