Just in time for Christmas baking - tasty Spitzbuben with Organic Red Currant filling!
Prep Time: about 35 min.
Resting Time: about 1 Std.
Baking Time: about min.
Difficulty: medium
Yield: about 40 cookies

Ingredients for the dough:

  • 200g butter (lactose free if necessary)
  • 150g Frusano Corn Sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 350g flour

Ingredients for the filling:


  1. With a hand mixer, beat together the butter, Organic Corn Sugar from Frusano, egg and salt until creamy.
  2. Sift the flour into the wet ingredients and work into a smooth dough. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour
  3. Knead the dough again and roll out onto a lightly-floured work surface to about 3mm.  Cut out circles with a diameter of about 6cm.  From half of the circles, cut out a small star.
  4. Preheat the oven to 200°C (top and bottom heat). Place the circles and little stars on a baking-paper-lined baking pan and back on the middle rack of the oven for about 8-10 minutes.  Let cool.
  5. Warm up the Organic Red Currant Spread from Frusano slightly, while stirring. Spread a little on each of the circles and top with one of the circles with a star cut out.  Create little sandwiches with the stars in the same manner.  Store in a cookie jar.
Have fun cooking and Bon Appetit!
