Cinnamon cookies…Tarcinli kurabiye (turkish)

Sweet blog entry to follow…

After an hour of afternoon blog surfing I had major 9:00pm sugar craving… I was inspired to make cookies (again)…These days I am inspired by “a friend to knit with”. I discovered her blog last week through a knit project… and, if you think I have domestic talents look at this lady. She has 3 kids, she is a great cook, an excellent knitter, she sews, she is a photographer and she has fashion sense. I don’t know if women like her sleep… she has “cookie of the week” posts that helped me so much to try out new recipes knowing someone else had success with it… to top it off, she has kids who can tell her what they like, so my little ones will probably eat them… I chose the following cookies, because:

i) I love cinnamon

ii) Dear husband hates cinnamon, but he will give it a shot if presented in right context

iii) we have a late night TV watching-tea-and-cookies ceremony every night

The only thing I modified was that I baked them for 14 minutes instead of 10. Family members requested crunchy outside with chewy inside… I also started with cold butter instead of room temperature… Cut the butter in 1cm wide chunks, then follow recipe to the T… Even if you don’t like cinnamon give this recipe a try… cookies were consumed in less than 20 minutes with only 3 left for the kids…

Until next time…Enjoy… g.

Recipe in Turkish…

Tarcinli Kurabiye

  • 1 bardak seker (125 ml sivi alan bir bardak)
  • 125 gram tereyag
  • 1 buyuk yumurta
  • 1 tatli kasigi sivi vanilya ya da 1 paket toz vanilya
  • 1 1/2 bardak un
  • 1 1/2 tatli kasigi tarcin
  • 1 paket kabartma tozu ya da 1 tatli kasigi
  • 1/2 cay kasigi softa tuzu (ince tuz)
  • uzerine tarcinli seker (yarim bardak seker, 1 tatli kasigi tarcini karistirin)

-Tereyagini 1 cm kalinliginda kes. Sekerle bir kasede mikserle cirp. Mixer yoksa tahta kasikla ezerek krema puturlu krema sekline gelene kadar karistir.

-Yumurta ve sivi vanilyayi ekle. Sivi kullanmadiysaniz, sadece yumurtayi ekleyin.

-Un, tarcin, kabartma tozu ve tuzu bir kaseda karistir. Toz vanilya kullandiysaniz, bu tereyagli karisima ekle…

-2-3 dakika hamur top halina gelinceye kadar karistir.

-Stretch filme sarip 2 saat buzdolabinda beklet… Hemen pisirmek istiyorsaniz derin dondurucuda 30 dakika bekletebilirsiniz…

-350F (175C) getirin.

-2cm capinda toplar yapip avucunuzun icinde yavasca bastirin.

-Tarcinli sekere batirip 2cm araliklarla az yaglanmis firin tepsisine koyun.(tepsinizi yaglarken sivi yag ya da margarin gibi yanmayacak bir yag kullanin. Pisirme kagidi kullanmanizi tavsiye ederim)

-Firininizin ayarina gore 10 ile 14 dakika arasinda kurabiyelerin kenarlari hafif kizarinca alin… Uzeri citir ici yumusak istiyorsaniz 14 dakika, tamamen yumusak istiyorsaniz 10 dakika…

NOT: Kurabiyeler tereyagli oldugundan cok pisirmeyin, altlari hemen kararir. Firindayken yumusak olsalar bile soguyunca hemen sertlesiyorlar. Turkiye’deki firinlar Amerika’dakilerden farkli oluyor… O yuzden kek ayarinizdan biraz dusuk bir isida pisirmenizi tavsiye ederim. Emin olamiyorsaniz 150 derecede arada sirada kurabiyelerin altina tahta spatulayla bakarak pisirebilirsiniz…

Yaparsaniz yorumlarinizi bekliyorum.  

Afiyet olsun, g.
