Ingredients
  1. 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  2. 3⁄4 cup granulated sugar
  3. 1 large egg
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  5. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  6. 1 cup almond flour
  7. 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  8. 1⁄2 teaspoon ground ginger
  9. 1⁄2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  10. 1⁄2 teaspoon lemon zest
  11. 1⁄2 cup lemon curd
  12. 1⁄2 cup confectioners’ sugar
Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, beat butter and granulated sugar at medium speed with a mixer until fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes, stopping to scrape sides of bowl. Beat in egg and vanilla.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flours, salt, ginger, nutmeg, and zest. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating just until combined. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1⁄8 inch thick. Using a 2-inch fluted square cutter, cut as many cookies as possible, rerolling scraps as needed. Place 1 inch apart on prepared pans. Using various 1⁄2-inch cutters, cut out centers from half of cookies.
  5. Bake until edges are lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool completely on pans.
  6. Spread 1 teaspoon lemon curd on flat side of whole cookies; top with cutout cookies, flat side down. Sift confectioners’ sugar over assembled cookies. Store in airtight containers up to 3 days.
