Pineapple filled sandwich cookies
We had a date with our neighbors for Mexican traditional enchilada making. Kristen makes the best enchiladas so I finally got her to teach me. They were amazing and soon as I get the OK from Kristen I will post the recipe here. As a thank you and for a sweet ending I baked pineapple sandwich cookies. The pineapple fried quinoa I made yesterday inspired me to make these cookies.
½ cup almond meal
1 ½ cup white spelt flour or all-purpose flour
½ cup sugar
½ tsp. baking soda
Combine almond meal, flour, sugar, baking soda and butter in a food processor and mix until it’s a firm dough ball. Wrap in plastic and place in fridge for 20 minutes. Preheat oven to F400. Roll dough into just larger than a quarter size ball and place on a cookie sheet. Use back of a fork to press balls slightly flat. Bake for 7-10 minutes, until golden brown. Let cookies cool completely. Spread pineapple preserve on flat side and pair up two cookies to make a sandwich.
