"Olma" pechenyesi ("Apple biscuits")
Hi there my dears! God bless us all in our wonderful and amazing lives!!! I feel so positive and joyful right now, that I wanted to share my LOVE and energy with you all! I just want to say that, keep on dreaming and believe in everything good! I love you all!!!
As for recipe:) I don't really remember the origin of these biscuits, but I know them from my childhood, so I can relate them to our cuisine:) Try to choose sweet, medium sized apples, which are flavorful and not so juicy. I made 6 "Apple"s out of this recipe:)
130 grams of butter or margarine
100 ml of full fat cream
Half a tsp of baking powder
Half a cup of powdered sugar
Plain flour as needed (better start to measure flour, as sometimes it's complicated for beginner cooks, sorry, xoxo)
6 tsp of cinnamon powder
Handful of black raisins
Handful of any nuts (I used almonds)
Grate butter using the big eye of the grater. Add in 1 cup of flour and start to mix, rubbing it between the palms of your hands. When it gets crumbly, add in sour cream, sugar, baking powder and mix again with spatula. Now start adding more flour, mix with hands, until you will form medium hard dough. Cover and put in fridge for 1 hour.
Divide the dough in 6 equal parts. Clean your apples using special knife.
Now, roll out one of the pieces of dough and sprinkle some cinnamon on top, put apple in the middle and fill with nuts and raisins. Sprinkle more cinnamon on top.
Pinch out the edges, to finely cover the apple. Put one clove at the top.
Repeat with other dough pieces and apples. Bake in preheated oven, using the middle rack, until nice, light golden in color. Take out and generously sprinkle with powdered sugar. Mmmm, yummy! Enjoy!
