These cookies have been following me since I was a child, helping my Mom to make the dough circles.
As kids, we used to look at the process eagerly, waiting for them to come out of the oven.
The hardest part was smelling the pretty smells but still had to wait till they cool down.
I made them a couple weeks ago but since then, quite a few asked me to post a recipe so, here is one that is simple and good, as long as you treat the dough carefully.
I realized that the most liked filling for them is chocolate so I will post it here although there are so many other options.
The dough can be prepared by hand or food processor.
Ingredients for the dough
- 1.5 Cup (225g) Flour
- 1/2 Teaspoon Baking powder
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla essence
- 100g Butter (unsalted) at room temperature
- 2 egg yolks
- ~75g Sour Cream
- 50g Sugar
- 10g Vannila sugar
- 2-3 teaspoons cacao powder(if you want a choclate dough)
For the filling
- Any chocolate spread, for example, Nutella 4dl
- 3-4 tablespoons bread crumbs
flour, baking powder and both sugars in a bowl.
add egg yolks, butter & cream and mix till you get a solid dough.
If needed, you can add 1-2 tablespoons of milk.
Leave the dough for at least an hour in the fridge, wrapped in plastic.
(for chocolate dough mix with the cacao powder).
Meanwhile, prepare the chocolate spread filling by mixing it with the bread crumbs. This will make sure that the filling will stay solid in the oven and will keep the shape of the cookies.
- Preheat the oven to 180C
- Roll the dough to 5mm thickness and cut out circles of approximately 8 – 10 cm diameters.
- Add the chocolate filling in the middle and fold into a triangle shape.
- Bake to 180C for 12-15 minutes or until nicely golden.
- If you want to use the mixed dough, cut 5cm wide stripes out of the chocolate and the light dough, place them by each other and slightly press to make one.
- Take the trays out of the oven, let the cookies rest for 5-10 min and then spread icing sugar before serving.
