Nastar, one of my kids favourite cookies, is filled with pineapple jam. It doesn´t look good enough, but the taste is really good. Next time, I´ll make it in a better form ^_^
125 g butter
125 g margarine"Blue Band"
50 g icing sugar
3 egg yolks
400 g all purpose flour1 egg yolk extra for garnish
filling: Homemade pineapple jam
2 pineapples, cut in chunks
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 tablespoons castor sugar
1 stick cinnamon
1 sachet vanille sugar
blend the pineapple chunks in an electric blender. Sift to drain off excess juice. Cook pineapple, sugar, cinnamon stick, vanille sugar, salt in a sauce pan over medium heat and let them simmer. Stir until the mixture dry and thick.
Beat in eggs yolk, icing sugar, margarine and butter with a high speed mixer for about 2 minutes. Fold in flour. Roll the dough and fill with pineapple jam. Place on grease baking trays then paint the top of cookies with egg yolk. Bake in preheat oven at 180°C for about 20 minutes.
