Recipe Card


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 14 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 5 - 7 tablespoons apricot jam


  • Step 1

    In a bowl of a stand mixer machine, place the sifted flour and cold butter. Using the paddle attachment, whisk the ingredients together until a sandy texture forms. Next, add in the egg yolks, lemon zest, orange zest, vanilla, and powdered sugar. Mix on high speed for a few seconds until a crumbly dough forms.

  • Step 2

    Transfer the dough to your worksurface and knead together until it is compact and holds together well. Form the dough into a ball and place into a bowl in the fridge for 30 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Preheat the oven to 350℉. Line a rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper.

  • Step 4

    Once chilled, remove the dough from the fridge, and roll it out on a floured surface until it's about 1/8" in thickness. Use a flower-shaped cookie cutter and cut flower cookies. Make a tiny hole in the center of half of the flower-shaped cookies. You can use a toothpick, straw, or piping tip to make the hole.

  • Step 5

    Place the cookies onto the prepared pan. Refrigerate the cookies for 15 minutes. Then, bake for 12 minutes.

  • Step 6

    Once the cookies have baked and cooled to room temperature. Turn the cookies over. Place a teaspoon of apricot jam into the center of a full cookie (aka, a cookie without a hole). Then, place the cookie with the hole over the jam, to make a sandwich. Repeat with the remaining cookies.
