​Date and Nut Cookies

​Date and Nut Cookies
Makes 25 cookies
Dough Ingredients:
1 kg all-purpose white flour
400 g melted margarine (400 g)
1 cup oil
1 cup lukewarm water
2 eggs
1.5 cups sugar
20 g baking powder
20 g vanilla sugar
Filling ingredients:
 450 g date paste
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup (80 g) powdered sugar, for sprinkling
Place the flour in a large bowl with the baking powder, vanilla sugar, margarine, eggs, oil, salt, and water and knead until the dough combines and forms a uniform ball. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and allow the dough to rest for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to medium, 180°C.
Divide the dough into four parts.
Roll each part out to a thickness of 0.5 cm.
Spread with a generous layer of date paste, sprinkle the paste with walnuts, and finally, sprinkle with cinnamon.
Roll up the dough into a cookie roll, seam-side down, and do the same with the other three parts.
Bake for 30 minutes, until the cookie rolls are still pale, not browned.
Remove from the oven, and wait for ten minutes or until the roulades have cooled down. Then slice the rolls into 3 cm-thick slices.
Generously sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Welcome to my blog. You'll find recipes, stories and mainly, experiences here. As far back as I remember myself and my family, everything always revolved around food. I grew up in a home brimming with good food and with a mother who loves to cook. She inherited her recipes from her own mother.
