This is a gem of a recipe. If you prefer to make your own jam for it, go right ahead, but they taste equally good with a nice quality store-bought jam.

Ingredients

  • 3 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 Cup ground walnuts
  • 1 1/4 Cup lard
  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 egg yolks
  • juice and zest of one lemon
  • 2 Cups of apricot jam or whatever you prefer
  • 1 Cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean

Directions

Mix the vanilla bean with the confectioners' sugar, set aside.

In a mixer beat the lard and sugar until creamy. Add all the eggs, the lemon and the zest. Gradually add the flour and walnuts.

Mix until it becomes a dough. Form the dough into a disc, cover and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

Dust a large surface with flour and roll the dough out to about 1/3 inch thick. Using whatever shape you want, cut out the shapes you want.

Place the cookies on parchment-lined baking sheets. Place the cookies 2-inches apart from one another.

When the cookies are cool, spread the jam onto half the cookies and top it with another cookie.

Enjoy!
