What are jelly donuts filled with

Are you all in the Christmas spirit already? If not, it's time! ;) Maybe a little advent calendar will help, something to nibble on and some Christmas music to get in the mood? So "Last Christmas" is already running in a loop here - unfortunately you can't hear it, but today I can offer you the 9th door of the Food Blogger Advent Calendar with some delicious cookie sandwiches;)

Yes, food bloggers also make Advent calendars - some of you may have noticed;) Our calendars cannot be placed next to the screen in the office or in the living room, but every day there is a (virtual) door with one or two surprises.

Today we have December 9th and accordingly I have the 9th door of the Food Blogger Advent Calendar (take a look at the Facebook page for more information - at the bottom there is also an overview of who is on which day) . Since Cookie Friday is also on my blog at the same time, I thought to myself, there will also be Christmas cookies today. Delicious marshmallow sandwich cookies with jam. Sounds good right?

Two chocolate biscuits nestle against a layer with a soft marshmallow and jam, coated with delicious chocolate ... that's how love stories begin and not with "Once upon a time ..."; P

I think so, even if you are not a big marshmallow fan (many think these things are too sweet), the combination with jam, biscuits and chocolate will convince even the last doubter. Especially when you bring a good jam or sandwich with you on the boat. I can particularly recommend the jams from Marmelicious *. I took a relatively "classic" jam here - cranberry and orange jam (with cardamom) *. The guys from Marmelicious have many other delicious flavors on offer - some of them very unusual combinations. Take a look around the site and you'll see what I mean

And because I think the jams are so good, they are here and now three jam packages (see below) of it to win. Sounds good, doesn't it? Then you can easily try out how the jams taste - I'm sure there are some jam fans here. What do you have to do? Very easily: Tell me in the comments what you have already baked with jam or would like to bake it. The lot will decide in the end and maybe I'll try out one or the other idea and show you what came of it :)

So hit the keys! But first read the conditions of participation at the bottom! Do you have until Monday, December 12th, 2016 at 11:59 p.m. Time to comment, then the winners will be drawn by lot and notified. That's it. Tomorrow, by the way, Fabienne von Freiknuspern will continue with the advent calendar. Have a nice Advent weekend!

2. Preheat the oven to 180 ° C (350 ° F). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. Roll out the dough on a floured surface and cut out 40 circles, each 6cm (2.4 inches) in diameter. Place the pieces of dough on the baking sheets with enough space between them and then slide a baking sheet into the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes. Take out of the oven, let cool for a short time on the baking sheet and then place on a wire rack to cool down. Bake the remaining biscuits in the same way and do not turn off the oven afterwards.

Spread the jam on the undersides of the remaining biscuits and set aside. Bake the biscuits with the marshmallows in the oven for 2-3 minutes, remove them and then immediately squeeze the sides of the biscuits with the jam together. Cool on a wire rack.

Roll out the dough on a floured surface and cut out 40 rounds - each about 2.4 inches (6cm) in diameter. Place on the baking sheets and bake one sheet at a time for 8-10 minutes. Take out of the oven and let cool down on the baking sheet for a moment, then transfer to a cooling rack and let cool down completely. Repeat with the second baking sheet - do not turn off the oven averwards.

3. Half the marshmallows. Turn half of the cookies upside down and place on a baking sheet - place a marshmallow on top. Brush some marmalade on the backside of the other half of the cookies and set aside. Place the ones with the marshmallows in the oven and bake them for about 2-3 minutes. Take them out and immediately place the cookies with the marmalade on top of the cookies with the marshmallows and press together. Let cool down on a wire rack.
