This cream cookie recipeis a traditional, very traditional recipe that my grandmother gave me, are common ingredients we use in the kitchen, the only difficulty is getting the cream, it can be close to a farm and buy milk fresh, boiled at home and take the cream, this is something a bit tricky depending on where we live or get a cream for pastry at the supermarket.
In my case I managed to buy the fresh cream to a farmer who sells milk near my home, I’ve been lucky !. But not detract cream bought also the result that we ensure that it has passed all health checks required.
So without further ado, let the recipe, Let’s go, Foodies !!!!
– 1 cup cream
– 1 cup of sugar
– 2 eggs
– A teaspoon of baking
– Flour (necessary to knead).
First, we mix the cream and sugar basic route very well until both ingredients are integrated. Now we add the teaspoon of baking soda and eggs and return to beat until all very united.
It’s time to put the flour into a paste that does not stick to your fingers.
Once we have worked sufficiently dough, knead about 15 minutes, we can extend it with a roller and go forming the cookies. The maximum light the oven so that it warms …..
Below the will put in the oven tray on baking paper to prevent sticking and we put, as every oven is different, the approximate time is 15 minutes but we have to be mindful that they start to brown, is and then when we get turned off. And this, we just need to start to cool taste them.
Christmas comes and what better to prepare a typical sweet of these dates as Recipe Marron Glacé.
Despite being an easy recipe to make, you have to be very careful when preparing chestnuts, as these should not be broken, we should pay attention to the good presentation of our dishes because they must “get” first through the eyes of the diners . Let our Recipe, Let’s go, Foodies !!!!
– Half Kg. chestnuts.
– 400 gr. of sugar.
– 1 vanilla pod or 2 tablespoons vanilla sugar. Preparation:
We take a small cut in each of the chestnuts and then put them in hot water blanching about 10 minutes.
Then also we are taking away the peel, thin skin being careful not to break.
The we put in a saucepan with water and let cook until tender.
While the syrup prepared with the following ingredients;
– 1 liter of water.
– The 400 gr. of sugar
– The vanilla bean.
Mix everything in a saucepan and cook over medium heat 15 minutes.
After the minutes, we lower the heat to low and add the chestnuts, now being careful not to break the cook for about 10 minutes.
After this time, we turn off the heat and let stand chestnuts in this syrup for 24 hours.
The next day is the last step that we have the oven.
We covered baking tray and put chestnuts, one by one, carefully 😉 below the bake for 20 to 125 ° until well dried.
Let cool and ready to serve.
Do not want to be heavy and insist that what is important in this Recipe is the care that must be taken so that we do not break the chestnuts, therefore, according to the minutes graduation I gave I each taking into account that has a kitchen and oven, rather than leave them until the end of time I have given, it is preferable to go looking for doneness every so often, because chestnutsare broken very easily and although the taste does not change the presentation YUP.!!
