Easy Chocolate Raspberry Stars

Schokosterne

I had a little bit of chocolate pie pastry left. Originally I hadn’t planned to bake. But, you know, it just happened. So I decided to make these cute little chocolate raspberry stars. Thank God I have so many colleagues I can take my baked goods to, otherwise I would be about 200 pounds! Funnily enough, my colleagues loved them. Isn’t it interesting that the simple recipes are usually the best?

These cute little stars are easy to make and are a fun activity with children. Yes, you have to chill the dough, but once that is done, you can cut out any cookie shape you want, put a little bit of jam on them and then they are ready to be baked. I put them on a stick because I find that cute, but obviously you can do without. I made these cookies more Christmassy like, but obviously you can also be more summerish (see photo below), so it really depends on the theme of the day you are making this for. If you go for the vanilla version as below, omit the cocoa and instead add two teaspoons of vanilla extract. I always make my own.

VanillesterneI love that these cookies are so versatile. You can either go with the typical sugar cookie with a little vanilla (see recipe adaptation above), or as I did with the chocolate version. I find raspberry jam is best for the chocolate version, but obviously that is up to you.

Ok, so let’s keep things short today, let’s make some cookies!

Easy Chocolate Raspberry Stars

Print Recipe
Serves: 20-40 stars, depending on size Cooking Time: 40min preparation + 15-20min of baking

Ingredients

  • 125 grams of all-purpose flour
  • 40 grams of regular sugar
  • 12 grams of unsweetened cocoa
  • 70 grams of cold butter
  • 1 egg
  • Jam (I used raspberry)
  • Sticks to put them on

Instructions

1

Mix flour, sugar, cocoa and butter quickly with your hands into crumbs. Then add the egg, knead a little more and form into a ball. Cover in plastic wrap for at least half an hour in the fridge.

2

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

3

Roll out dough on floured surface and cut into desired shapes. Be sure to make holes in half of the cookies. I used a smaller star shape for this.

4

Transfer cookies to baking sheet. Place a teaspoon (not too much!) of jam on the cookies without holes and place cookies with holes on top. I used a toothpick to be sure that the jam is evenly distributed and the hole covered fully. Stick sticks between the two cookies.

5

Bake between 14-20min, depending on size.
