For the poppy seed dumplings, crumble the butter pieces with the flour. Then add sugar, salt, orange juice and vanilla sugar and knead everything into a smooth dough. Let it rest in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.

Sprinkle the work surface with a little flour. Divide the dough into 3-4 pieces. Form individual pieces into rolls and cut down pieces about 2 cm wide with a knife.

Form these into small balls, roll in poppy seeds and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. With the handle of a wooden spoon or your finger, press a hollow into the center of the ball to form a doughnut. Mix the jam well and generously fill the cavities of the poppy seed doughnuts with it.

Bake the poppy seed doughnuts in the preheated oven at 180 °C for about 12 minutes.

Preparation Tip:

For variety in the Christmas cookies recipe "Mohnkrapferln" provide different types of jam.
