I am very partial to Turkish pastries, so I periodically follow new recipes, I subscribe to several Turkish channels. About a year ago, the presented recipe got into my cookbook. It won me over with its simplicity of preparation, unusual appearance and, of course, taste. The cookie is called Dondurma kurabiye, which translates as ice cream cookies. It turns out that the cookies are very tasty, fragrant and crumbly. It can be prepared with chocolate, cocoa, nuts, mint, etc. Help yourself!
In a bowl, combine the butter at room temperature, vegetable oil and egg.
Beat with a mixer.
Next, sift the corn starch, powdered sugar and vanilla.
Beat with a mixer until smooth.
Next, sift half a portion of flour and baking powder of the dough. Beat it up.
Then add chocolate drops or just finely chopped chocolate. Mix with a spatula.
Sift the remaining part of the flour and knead the dough with your hands. The dough should gather into a ball when pressed.
Fill the ice cream spoon with dough, lightly tamp it down.
Press the spoon on top with the palm of your hand (so that the dough does not run away from the spoon ahead of time), press the handle of the spoon and let go.
It turns out a beautiful relief pattern, similar to a ball of ice cream. Spread the cookies on a baking sheet, covered and, if necessary, greased with vegetable oil. Bake in the oven, preheated to 170 degrees, 20 minutes. The cookies should remain light. I got 17 pieces.
