Peaches are cookies that my mother regularly prepared when I was a kid. They are basically consisted of baked biscuits glued with jam, then colored and eaten of course :) I prefer to leave them to stay overnight before eating. These are delicious and charming cookies for all generations.


  • 2 eggs
  • 200 g sugar
  • 100 g melted fat (or butter)
  • ½ bag baking powder (5 g)
  • 350 g flour
  • 5 tablespoons of jam
  • granulated sugar
  • rum or rum extract 
  • edible color (yellow and red)


  1. Mix eggs with sugar and melted fat.
  2. Mix flour and baking powder separately.
  3. Combine everything and knead until dough doesn't stick to your fingers anymore.
  4. Create a square form, then cut in smaller cubes with equal size. From each cube form balls with the size of walnuts.
  5. Arrange on a baking paper.
  6. Put to bake in a preheated oven at 200 C degrees for about 13-15 minutes, don't worry if they become a little browned. 
  7. When cool, hollow out each piece and mix crumbs with ¼ jars of jam, add 50 ml rum (or rum extract the appropriate amount, it's better for children), mix well and charge hollowed holes and glue the two half-balls.
  8. Pour a little water in one cup, add yellow edible color and in other cup with water add red edible color. Depending on how strong color we want, the less water we add and vice versa. Coat peaches with color using a brush and leave for few minutes to be a little dry, or when only a little damp, roll them in crystal sugar (if you want to prime them more sugar, then immediately roll in sugar while still wet). You can also just dip them in color. but do that carefully. Or you can use only one red color and put some only in the middle of both sides. Experiment! Thus continue with the rest of the peaches.
