russian tea cakes

for claudia,a wonderful friend

sau pe romaneste ,niste bilute cu unt si nuca,numai bune de papat la craciun,care se fac foarte repede,sunt simple,aromate,placute.reteta este luata de pe all recipe(cu unele mici ajustari personale) ,unde sunt prezentate mai multe variante.in orice caz,cineva spunea ca in familia sa se fac de patru generatii si sarbatoarea craciunului inseamna si prezenta acestor mici bilute pudrate cu zahar…eu subscriu,prajiturelele acestea micute inscriindu-se in lista acelor lucruri cu care asociezi sarbatorile mari.

ingrediente:
-200grame de unt,la temperatura camerei,
-2 fiole cu esenta de vanilie,
-100grame nuca maruntita,
-cca 350 grame faina,
-6 linguri rase de zahar pudra+100 grame pentru decor.

incepem prin a preincalzi cuptorul.apoi mixam untul cu vanilia,obtinem o crema spumoasa,in ea adaugam zaharul pudra,mixam bine,apoi nuca si faina ,treptat.definitivam aluatul cu mina…apoi formam bilute cu diametru cam de doi cm,pe care le asezam intr-o tava negresata,poate doar tapetata cu hirtie de copt(eu nu m-am mai obosit…).
introducem tava in cuptor,la foc potrivit,cca 20 minute,pina cind portiunea in contact cu tava incepe a se rumeni usor.atunci scoatem tava,o lasam la racit 5 minute si scoatem bilutele din ea.le tavalim prin zahar pudra si le gazduim in cutii de carton sau tabla pina la craciun…cind le mai tavalim o data prin zahar ,inainte de a fi servite.enjoy!

    We make these in Greece and Cyprus as well and are called kourabiedes, only we use almonds as we use the walnuts in another Christmas cookie called melomakarona. In Cyprus kourabiedes are also our wedding cakes. I am planning to make some soon.

    I'll never understand Romanian language but I would say these goodies look absolutely stunning. I'm saving it up for later use. Thank you so much for sharing it. By the way, your new header picture & background looks great! Feel like snowing for real! Planning for any holiday vacation?

    Cum spunea cineva mai sus, sunt asemanatoare cu prajiturile grecesti kourabiedes. Imi place sa le fac si pun in ele putin cuisoare macinate, le da o aroma de sarbatoare 🙂
