A Turkish dessert made with cookies, cheese and syrup.
Prep Time:20 minutes
Cook Time:20 minutes
Total Time:40 minutes
For its syrup:
2 cups water
1 ½ cup sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
For its dough:
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
5 tbsp butter
150g unsalted cheese or ricotta
First, you should prepare its sherbet. Boil water and sugar in a pot about 10 minutes. Once it boils, add lemon juice. Boil it one more minute and take it from fire.
Preheat the oven to 180C (400F).
Sieve the flour in a tray. Break eggs in the middle of the flour. Mix it with your hands. Then add baking soda, butter and crumbled unsalted cheese. Knead all of them well. It should be soft enough, but shouldn’t be sticky. Lay greased cooking paper on a tray. Roll about 20 pieces from the dough as big as a walnut. Put them in the tray and cook then for about 20 minutes until golden.
After they are cooked, take them out from the oven. Let them cool for about 20 minutes. Then, heat the sherbet again and when it boils, put these dessert cookies into the boiling sherbet and boil them until they get soft. This takes about 10 or 15 minutes. Then take them with the help of a colander.
Serve it cold. If you like, you can serve it with ice cream or cream.
