ITALIAN ALMOND AND RAISIN COOKIES

If you like Italian cookies, try this fantastic recipe!!

 

Ingredients:

170gr (0.75cup – 6oz) flour

220gr (0.8 – 7oz) almonds flour

150gr (0.6cup – 5oz) sugar

160gr (0.7cup – 5.6oz) butter

100gr (0.4cup – 3.5oz) raisins

1 pinch of salt

icing sugar

 

 

METHOD

First of all put raisins in warm water to soften, then squeeze them and dry them with a cloth.

Mix together both flours, sugar and salt, then add eggs, cold butter and finally raisins. Stir well.

Place the dough in a polythene bag and leave it in the fridge for 1 hour to rest.

For the cooking: now it’s up to you, you can choose between crunchy or soft cookies (I still can’t decide which one I prefer!).

For soft ones, form little balls (big as a nut) and place them on a baking sheet, then bake at 160°C (310F) for 10-11 minutes (take out when they start colouring on the edges).

For crunchy ones, after formed little balls press them lightly and bake at 160°C (310F) for 15-17 minutes (the should be a nice brown colour).

Sprinkle them with icing sugar when still hot.
