Makes 26 cookies.

  • 1 lb ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup semolina flour
  • 1 cup of all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla sugar
  • 1/3 tsp of baking powder
  • 3 cup of sugar
  • 2+1/2 cup of water
  • 1 tbsp of fresh lemon juice
Take the ricotta cheese in a strainer and cover it with plastic wrap over night. Place a deep cup under the strainer to let the liquid out and let it sit in the refrigerator.

Next day, mix all of the syrup ingredients in a medium pot and boil them for 15 minutes on a medium heat. Let the syrup cool completely.
Take ricotta cheese from the refrigerator and place it in a large bowl. Add the eggs, semolina flour, powdered sugar, flour, baking soda and vanilla sugar in the same bowl and knead until well combined.
Take small parts ( about the size of walnut ) from the dough and give them the shape of small balls. Place them on a greased baking tray. Decorate with whole hazelnut. Preheat the oven 350 F. Bake the cookies for 20 to 25 minutes.
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.

Beautiful posts and recipes.
Have a query regarding the use of peaches in Turkish cuisine. Did see recipes with quince and apricot but could not find any with peaches. Is there any Turkish dessert recipe using peaches?

?, you can use unripened peaches just like quince but there is no other recipe with peaches as far as I know.
