It`s been a long time since I haven`t posted anything. Easter cleaning and cooking got all my time. I made many kind of cakes this Easter, the chocolate cake wrapped in coconut, ishler, baigli, creamy cake and the lemon cake. As I have some free time, I will post every recipe! For now, it`s just these amazing ishlers.
For the dough you need:
- 600 gr flour
- 400 gr butter
- 1 spoon baking powder
- 200 gr grinded nuts
- 150 gr powdered sugar
- 2 eggs
- pinch of salt
- 2-3 spoons milk
Now you have to just knead the dought with all these ingredients, but be careful to knead it very well.
Share the dough in 2-3 parts, and work with one part at a time. Put it on a wooden board, or kitchen counter (first pour some flour so the dough won`t be sticky). Use a roller pin to strech out evenly the dough.
Now just cut out some round shaped cookies using a cup. You can make them as big or as small as you want. I used a middle sized cup (and I made aprox. 60 ishlers). Put baking paper in a tray, and then put the cookies. If you have patience, they will be perfectly round, if not, they`ll look like mine :)
Leave them in the oven for about 10-15 minutes. The edges should be a little bit goldy.
They look great, don`t they? :) Okey, and for the cream, I used a simple butter cream. Here is what you need:
- 400 gr butter
- 250 gr powdered sugar
- 1-2 spoons cocoa
First, mingle the butter with the powdered sugar.
You can add 1-2 spoons of cocoa. If you add 2 the cream will be darker, if you add only one, the cream will be lighter.
Now that the cream is done, just make some sandwiches using the cookies and the cream. You can put as mush cream as you want.
And now comes the frosting. I used melted chocolate, but I made a big mistake. I melted the milk chocolate in the microwave. God knows what happened, but the chocolate didn`t came out as I expected. But I had to use it, since I didn`t have anything else in hand.
The ishlers still tasted amazing, although they didn`t look that good. We decided we`ll eat them all, because they didn`t look good enough to show them to guests (and that wasn`t a problem at all).
Another great thing about these little cookies, is that you can make them like one week before holidays! You can easily store them in the fridge for one week. Enjoy them :)
