ŞEKERPARE

 
Makes 38 cookies

During Ramadan, we would like to have dessert after iftar. These desserts are usually very sweet like this one...

Ingredients:

  • 2 sticks of butter ( melted )
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 4 tbsp of semolina
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp of shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp of baking soda
  • 3 cups of flour
Syrup:

  • 2+1/2 cups of sugar
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1tbsp of lemon juice

First mix all of the syrup ingredients in a medium pot and boil them for 10 minutes on a medium heat. Let the syrup cool completely.



Preheat the oven to 350F. Mix melted butter, powdered sugar, semolina,eggs, coconut, baking soda in a large mixing bowl. Add flour slowly to make the dough soft.  Take a small part of dough like a size of walnut and give it a cookie shape. Place a hazelnut ( or a piece of walnut or pistachio or almond whichever you have in your hands ) on top of cookies. Place them on the baking tray. Bakef or 30 minutes or the cookies change their color to brown.Take the tray out of the oven and pour the syrup slowly on top of cookies and let the cookies absorb the syrup for 6-7 hours.

Do these cookies have shelf life? Should the left overs be refrigerated or do they stay good at room temperature?
