Peach Cookies are an impressive dessert perfect for summer days, that look and taste like peaches. These cookies are known worldwide and are usually made during the holiday season reminding to many of us of the beautiful childhood days.

 

I personally think these cookies are great for peach season. I’ve tried to keep the recipe as easy to prepare as possible. I’ve simply made some buttery cookies that are filled with a peach flavored filling, matched together and dipped into colored liqueur and coated with sugar for an amazing look and taste. Hope you will try it out and enjoy!

Ingredients
  • Makes about 15 peach cookies
  • Cookie Dough
  • 1 2/3 cup (210g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp (6g) baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp (1g) salt
  • 1/2 cup (110g) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup (60g) powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp (5g) vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp (45g) sour cream
  • Lemon zest from 1 lemon
  • Filling
  • 1/4 cup (30g) ground pecans or walnuts or almonds
  • 1/4 cup (80g) peach jam
  • reserved cookie crumbs
  • For decoration
  • 2/3 cup (160ml) Peach liqueur, divided
  • red food coloring
  • yellow food coloring
  • fine sugar
  • green leaves

Directions


  1. Preheat oven to 350F (180C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

  2. Prepare cookie dough. In a large bowl mix butter with sugar and lemon zest until creamy. Add egg and mix until well combined. Mix  in vanilla extract and sour cream.

  3. In a medium bowl whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.

  4. With mixer on low incorporate flour mixture to butter mixture.

  5. Grease your hands with softened butter or oil. Scoop about 1 tbsp (15g) of dough and shape into balls. Place the balls on the prepared baking sheets.

  6. Flatten the balls slightly .

  7. Bake for 13-15 minutes until bottoms are lightly golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool completely.

  8. When cookies are cooled use a small sharp knife to remove the cookie center crumb and place it in a bowl as it will be used for the filling.

  9. Prepare the filling. Break the reserved cookie centers into crumbs.  Add peach jam and ground pecans or walnuts over the reserved cookie crumbs and stir to combine.

  10. Place the filling into a piping bag fitted with a plain tip (I’ve used a 9 mm tip).

  11. Fill the cookies and match two cookies together.

  12. Decorate cookies. Add about 1/3 cup (80ml)  peach liqueur into a small bowl. Add yellow food coloring. Add another 1/3 cup (80ml) peach liqueur into another bowl and add red food coloring. In another bowl add a bit of fine sugar.

  13. Dip about a half of each sandwiched cookie into the yellow liqueur and then into the red one. Let it drain a bit and then roll into sugar to coat evenly.

  14. Place the peach cookies onto a serving platter and decorate with green leaves if desired. Enjoy!
