If you can guess from the title: It’s about mulled wine! Do you like mulled wine? I’m a little torn about that. It depends on my form on the day and how good the mulled wine is. 😉 But today’s recipe with homemade mulled wine…I would’ve eat all of the jelly if we wouldn’t need it fort he cookies!

So today I have tasty Mulled Wine Cookies for you! And finally I could use the mulled wine spice I won last year at Mr. Applepie’s. 🙂 But of course you can use several spices for the same effect.

For the dough
  1. • 125 g cold butter
  2. • 250 g sugar
  3. • 250 g flour
  4. • 1 pack of vanilla sugar
  5. • 1 egg
For the mulled wine jelly
  1. • ½ orange
  2. • ½ lemon
  3. • 125 ml red wine
  4. • about 1 tsp mulled wine spice
  5. • 125 g jam sugar 1:1
  6. • Alternative to the mulled wine spice: 2 cinnamon sticks, 3 star anise, 5 cloves
  1. For the dough cut the butter into small pieces and knead it to a dough together with flour, sugar, vanilla sugar and egg. Wrap it into clingfilm and put it in the fridge for about 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180 °C/356 °F and roll out the dough on a dusted surface, about 4-5 mm thick. Now cut out cookies in form of stars, hearts or circles and from the half of the cookies cut out small stars, hearts and circles. Place the cookies onto a baking tray covered with parchment paper and bake them for 8-10 minutes until they’re golden.
  3. While the cookies cool you can make the jelly. Cut orange and lemon in slices and together with red wine and spice boil it up. Take the pan from the stove and leave to draw for about 15 minutes. Afterwards remove the fruits and spices with the help of a strainer and boil up the mulled wine again. Now add the jam sugar and boil it while stiring. Take it from the stove and let it cool a little.
  4. Spread the slightly cooled jelly on a cookie and place another cookie with a notch on top. Fill the notch with jelly. Repeat the process with all cookies.
  5. If you like you can dust the cookies with powdered sugar.
