Please congratulate me… I finally achieved to cook these yummy cookies. Don’t ask how many times I tried. I just don’t want to count. After each failure, I promised myself not to try again. However, I couldn’t help breaking my promise as I see great cookie photos on the net. I did it at last.
This morning, when I woke up, I had the same feeling: Craving for cookies! I tried to be positive as I believe in the power of positive feeling. I opened my window to get some fresh air, watched the rain for a while, turned on the music player (playing Yann Tiersen) and found myself preparing the cookie ingredients once again.
The result was great! That’s what my husband and brother said with “yummmmm!” sound effect. So how did it come?
Yann Tiersen Kurabiyeleri
• 1 cup sugar
• 1 egg
• 1 stick (125gr) butter, room temperature
• ½ lemon, zest grated
• 2 tsp lemon juice
• 2 cups flour
• 2 tsp ginger
• 1 tsp baking powder
• Pounded almonds and whole almonds for garnish
Preheat the oven to 180C (356F)
Mix egg and sugar until smooth. Add butter and go on mixing. The mixture should be creamy. Put grated lemon zest and lemon juice in it. Now add flour and ginger little by little and mix it with a spoon. The dough shouldn’t be too hard or too soft. Take small pieces, first roll them, then flatten.
Put the pounded almonds in a bowl. Roll the flattened cookies in the pounded almonds and put them on greased sheet. Finally place whole almonds on cookies. And bake it for 15 minutes. When they are done, do not leave them in the oven. Take the tray out. Let them cold. And serve these cookies with a cup of tea.
You can not guess how I’m happy with them, my first success on cookies.
