Lena from „Mein leckeres Leben“ has prepared a Mother’s Day recipe for you:

And this is how it's done:

Ingredients (for about 12 pieces)

  • 250 g wholemeal spelt flour
  • 125 g bold butter
  • 1/2 tsp Ceylon cinnamon, grounded
  • 200 g curd cheese or cream cheese
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1-2 tsp raw can sugar


For the coating

  • 4 apples
  • 1 egg
  • 150 g cream cheese
  • 1/3 tsp bourbon vanilla, grounded
  • 1/2 organic lemon, grated
  • 4 tsp raw cane sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Ceylon cinnamon, grounded
  • 2-3 tsp whipped cream, for spreading
  • icing sugar for dusting


  1. For the dough, knead all the ingredients together and chill for half an hour.
  2. For the topping, mix the egg with the cream cheese, vanilla, lemon zest and 2 tbsp sugar in a bowl.
  3. Mix 2 tbsp sugar with cinnamon in a small bowl.
  4. Cut the apples into thin slices.
  5. Preheat the oven to 180°C hot air. Line two baking trays with baking paper.
  6. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured work surface, about 3 mm thick.
  7. Cut hearts out of the dough with a knife. Knead the rest of the dough together again, roll it out and cut out hearts again.
  8. Roll up the edges of the dough a little to make a small high rim. Spread the dough hearts on the baking trays.
  9. Spread 2 tsp of the vanilla cream cheese cream on each of the dough hearts. Place the apple slices on top.
  10. Brush all with liquid whipped cream and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  11. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until golden brown and crisp.
  12. Leave to cool slightly and sprinkle with icing sugar to taste.
