Belgian Cookies

Belgian Cookies

This is a recipe from my Mother-in-Law which had been passed down to her through the generations. It uses cookie cutters which you can find at any kitchenware store, dollar store or second-hand store. 

The buttery cookies are filled with jam and decorated with icing. This is a family favourite recipe and fun to make with the kids.

Belgian Cookies 

Makes 18 cookies

1 cup soft butter
1/2 cup icing sugar
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon milk
Pinch of salt

Raspberry Jam

Icing:

3/4 cup icing sugar
2-3 tablespoons milk

Directions: 

Preheat oven to 325° F.

Cream together butter and sugar with a mixer. Add cornstarch and flour. Slowly add milk, salt, and mix well. 

Roll out dough on a floured board to 1/4-inch-thick and cut into desired shapes. Bake until dry and dull looking, about 12 to 15 minutes.

While still warm, spread one cookie with raspberry jam and top with another cookie of the same shape.

For the icing, mix together the icing sugar and milk until it is a little runny. Spread a thin layer of icing over the top of each cookie, as desired.
