Ingredients for this Homemade traditional Romanian cookies
- 200 gr sugar
- 2 eggs
- 200 gr lard (pork melted fat) or butter
- lemon zest
- vanilla sugar
- 10 gr baking powder
- a pinch of salt
- 480-500 gr flour
To make the dough I've mixed the eggs with a pinch of salt and the vanilla sugar (10 gr) and the caster sugar.
Mix very well until the sugar is almost melted and the color of this mixture is creamy yellow.
Now add the lard or butter at room temperature and of course mix very very well.
Is time to add lemon zest, backing powder and start adding flour gradually, working the dough (kneading) and adding flour until the dough doesn't stick to the hands.
Let the dough for 30 min in the refrigerator.
Now, to form the cookies I use the old manual machine that use to mince meat and a cookie form adapted to this machine, but you can use those cookies press kit
Place the cookies on the baking sheet and bake in the preheated oven at 180 degree C for 10-15 min.
