  • 2.5 cups all purpose flour
  • 8 tbsp butter (110 grams)
  • 0.5 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 tbsp plain yogurt or kefir
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 0.5 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda


  • 8 oz Plum Butter about 225 grams


  1. Mix butter and powdered sugar together into a creamy texture.

  2. Add egg yolks, sour cream and yogurt, or kefir, and mix everything well together.

  3. Add lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla, and continue mixing.
  4. Finally add the flour, and using your hands knead the dough into a ball.

  5. Cover the kneaded dough with foil and put it in the fridge for a minimum of 30 minutes. You can leave your dough in the fridge overnight or 24 hours if you like.

  6. Once cooled, take half a portion of the dough and roll it flat with a rolling pin. About 1/4 of an inch (0.5 cm) thick. You can use plastic wrap to avoid sticking.

  8. Place a teaspoon of plum butter onto each circle. 

  9. Fold it on three sides into a shape of a triangle.

  10. Place your shaped cookie onto a cookie sheet.
