TWD - Little Rascals (Spitzbuben)
This week’s Tuesday with Dorie recipe is Liitle Rascals, known in their native Germany as Spitzbuben. They are delicious little sandwich cookies made with a dough containing ground walnuts, with two biscuits (one having a peek a boo hole in it) sandwiched together with jam.
Dorie warned that the soft dough might be a pain to work with, and she was not wrong!! I ended up leaving the cut out cookies on the paper I cut them out on and removing the dough from around the cutouts, as they were too soft to lift. I cut any jagged edges off when the biscuits came out of the oven.
The only small cutter I have is heart-shaped, so my biscuits have a heart-shaped peekaboo cutout, revealing the cherry jam beneath.
On a taste scale, these were devine, but on an ease of making, they rate as painful because the dough is quite temperamental.
To see what everyone else made this week and what they thought of it, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.
