Peaches cookies

It has been some time since my last recipe and I actually has prepared some pictures for the new one. Few months ago we saw these cookies in a Bulgarian shop and my husband wanted to taste them as they looked very appealing. I like baking and also I always prefer to do it myself rather then buying it, as I know what goes inside and mine goes off (if they survive in a week or less) as the one that we buy form the shop can stay for months and still look and taste as they are just made.

Now I know I am on a diet and trying to be good as I gained few kilos these last few weeks, but I really like backing and this is one of my favorite recipes form my childhood. The peaches are always a hit. So here is the recipe:

Ingredients:

For the cookies:

  • 4 eggs
  • 5 1/2 cups flour
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 cup of sunflower oil
  • 3/4 cup yogurt
  • 1 tea spoon of backing soda
  • 1/2 tea spoon backing powder

For the cream:

  • 1 cup of milk
  • 250g butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup finely chopped of walnuts

 

  • Marmalade
  • Food coloring (yellow and red)
  • sugar for coating

Preparation:

Switch on the oven to 180 degrees C. Whisk the eggs and the sugar until well blended (1 min). Add the rest of the ingredients and make a soft dough (without over kneading it). Leave it for min 30 min (but no more then 1 hour and a half) in the fridge. After this make a small balls (as big as a a walnuts) and put them on a backing sheet. Have in mind that they will rise so leave them space. Bake for 10-15 min or until golden at 180 degrees C. when the cookies are ready and nicely cooled, dig in the middle part as shown on the picture bellow. (Do not throw the crumbs)

For the cream put the milk on the stove and when warm add the butter and sugar and mix until the sugar dissolves. take it out of the fire and let it cool for 10 min, add the walnuts and the crumbs from the cookies. It should look something like this:

Now with using a tea or coffee spoon fill up the cookies with the walnuts and crumbs mixture. After they are ready use the marmalade to stick two of them together. Prepare two bowls with milk – in one add form the yellow coloring in the other one red coloring.

dip one half in the red coloring and the other half in the yellow one, then sprinkle some crystal sugar on top. In Bulgaria they used to put some green leaves to make it look authentically, but I didn’t have so hope you like it even without. Also if you prefer you can do the coloring before you stick the two halves, it is up to you. Here is also one little secret – they taste even better the next day, if you can hide them :o)

ENJOY!!!
