EASTER COOKIES by Fräulein Klein

We are getting in a good easter mood, and what better way than baking som wonderful cookies.
So we teamed up with the sweet German blogger Fräulein Klein who made this great recipe of Easter Egg with lemon curd... uhmmmm.

350 g. flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
70 g. sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoon grated lemon
1 tablespoon lemon juice
75 ml. oil
60 ml. milk
250 g. quark 20%
Powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
Lemon curd

And here is how to do it:

Mix flour and baking powder in a bowl. Add all remaining ingredients. Drain the water from the quark before putting it in. Knead the ingredients into a smooth dough. Put plenty of flour on the table and roll out the dough to an approx. 3 mm thickness.
Cut out the eggs with an oval-shaped cookie cutter. Make a small oval hole in the center on half of the eggs. Bake them golden brown in the oven for approx. 15 minutes at 150 degrees. Allow to cool. Sprinkle the eggs (with a hole) with a mixture of powdered sugar and vanilla sugar. Lubricate the eggs (without a hole) with lemon curd and put the eggs (with a hole) on top.
Enjoy your Easter eggs!
