Some suggest blackcurrant jam, but my favorite for this is mixed jam or perhaps strawberry or plum jam. It has to be solid. I used about 4 table spoons of jam, but I made big holes to fill it in.
For this step I use my machine to whisk it together.
In a large bowl I put in the butter, sugar and vanilla sugar and I whisked it together to a "foamy" consistent or mix until it is well mixed and soft.
Add the eggs and the egg yolks and mix well again.
Add the flour and mix lightly with a spatula then add the grounded walnuts. I didn't need the spatula for long, because the dough was starting to come together. At the end I used my hands to combine it well and make a ball from a nice soft dough.
It had to rest for two hours in the refrigerator.
When the time passed I took out only a part of the dough. The rest was still cooling in the refrigerator.
I first rolled it out to a "snake" and cut it into - what I tried to be - even pieces.
From each piece I made a ball, put in on a tray - that was lined with baking paper and took my wooden spoon and made a small hole in the middle. Then I carefully put the marmelade in the hole. When the tray was ready I baked it at 190°C for 14min.
After 13min I took one out and because it was golden-brown on the bottom side I knew they were done.
From the owen I put them carefully on a cooling rack to cool and sprinkle it with some icing sugar.
Now I have to put them somewhere save so no one will eat them until the weekend.
And I heard from the other room "Good luck with that".
