Gevulde Koeken....Almond cookies


I love this almond cookies......I tried them in Holland, and now I'm baking them at home....

Almond paste

125 grams of grinded almonds

110 grams sugar

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon of lemon zest

1/2 teaspoon almond essence


320 grams of flour

180 grams cold butter cut into small pieces

150 grams sugar

1 egg

Some almond halves to decorate

In a food processor, combine the ingredients of tha almond paste until you have a smooth paste. Set aside.

In a food processor or by hand, combine the flour and sugar, add the butter. Then add the egg, and some water if you need it. Make a cookie dough that can be worked with a roll pin. Let it rest for 30 minutes in the fridge.

With a roll pin, make a 3mm thick dough. Cut them in circles with a cutter. Place half of the circles on a parchment paper on a  baking tray. With your hands, make a small ball of the almond paste, and flatten it. Place it on a half of the circle, and with a beaten egg, brush the edges. Place the other half of the cookie on top. Brush it with the beaten egg, and decorate it with an almnd slice. Bake them in a preheated oven at 325F for 18 minutes or until golden bron. ENJOY! 


  1. These marzipan filled cookies look so very yummy and would make a great addition to the holiday cookie tray too.

  2. I love almond cookies too and these definitely sound like ones that I need to try.
