Make Up Cookies!

Today I have woken up with a wish: to eat “cornulete”! When I was a child I was imagining that I was the boss of a pastry shop and that when I would enter the shop, all my employees would honour me with different sweets: “Madam, you need to try our latest invention, some cookies that you have never eaten before, the best in the world!”. I have grown up and my wishes have changed, no pastry shop attracts me anymore, but yes, I still like cookies;)

Here is the simple recipe of cornulete, a Turkish invention that all the Eastern European countries have borrowed.

(Me smelling the vanilla essence…)

or be creative and make up your own filling.

You start mixing all the ingredients…let’s be honest, it does sound simple!

Well, it is the first time that I am trying to make them, so I have no idea what will be the result. It is good to take some risks in life.;)

A friend of mine from Romania sent me an encouraging message: “go ahead, I am sure they’ll turn out great.” Are you sure?

The dough has to be put in the fridge for lets say one hour!

I mixed the nuts with the jam or with the nutella.

Spread out the dear dough( see, I am already talking to it in a nice way…so it doesn’t get upset and mess my recipe up). Cut it in slices.

I think the cookies are ideal as a gift for grouchy people who get upset easily!

Time to get them in the oven… Byeeeee, see you in 25 minutes or so…until you find that they look baked(how “precise” I am:))

And they taste great! Come with a bottle of Romanian wine, Grasa de Cotnari or Busuioaca de Bohotin and lets eat them all!

A Romanian old song for parties and pictures of the old Bucharest.
