MELT IN THE MOUTH TURKISH SHORTBREAD COOKIES! -

In North Africa & the Middle East are many variations of the humble shortbread, they all go by different names but are all very similar in taste & appearance. This Turkish recipe is very similar to my favourite Algerian shortbread called Ghraybia. I also like to make these using 2 cups of Self Rising flour (omitting the baking powder) & to use a mix of 3 tbsp ghee plus margarine to make 2 cups (when doing this I omit the vanilla as I like to taste the sweetness of the ghee).

Total Time 30 minutes

Prep Time 10 minutes

Cook Time 20 minutes

Yield 25 cookies

Number Of Ingredients 5

1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2 cups flour
1 cup icing sugar (split into 2 half cups) or 1 cup confectioners' sugar (split into 2 half cups)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Steps:

  • Preheat the oven to 160c.
  • In a medium sized mixing bowl, cream 1/2 a cup of the icing sugar, the butter & the vanilla.
  • Sift the flour and the baking powder, slowly add to the creamed butter. Mix well with a wooden spoon.
  • One thoroughly combined, roll a teaspoonful of the dough at a time into balls. Place the balls on a baking tray lined with parchment or baking paper.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, they should be cooked through - firm - but remain pale in colour.
  • Dust the shortbread straight from the oven with some of the remaining icing sugar (sieved).
  • Allow to cool, then just before serving dust again with the rest of the icing sugar.

TURKEY COOKIES RECIPE -

Build an Oreo turkey with Oreos, candy and frosting. This would be a fun activity for (school-age) kids at a Thanksgiving gathering to put these together. They can display them at their dinner place and eat them for dessert....if they can wait that long. The recipe I am listing will be to make one dozen turkeys.

Total Time 15 minutes

Prep Time 15 minutes

Yield 12 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 7

24 Oreo Double Stuff cookies
12 miniature peanut butter cups
12 malted milk balls
1 cup candy corn
4 ounces chocolate frosting
4 ounces white frosting
red food coloring

Steps:

  • Place one Oreo cookie as the base. Put one teaspoon of chocolate frosting on top.
  • Place one small peanut butter cup on it's side so that the top and bottom are perpendicular to the base -- and stuck in the frosting. Place a teaspoon of chocolate frosting on the top(widest part) of the p-butter cup.
  • For the second cookie. Stick some candy corn into the Oreo 'stuff' along one edge for the feathers -- pointy side down. They should fan out around the edge. If you have trouble doing this, you can help them stick with some white frosting.
  • Place this second Oreo cookie (the tail) on it's edge and sticking to a dab of brown frosting on the back of the peanut butter cup.
  • Place a dab of chocolate frosting on top of the peanut butter up (for the head). Place a malted milk ball on top for the head.
  • Take a small amount of the white frosting in a separate dish. Mix in red food coloring.
  • Use a toothpick with the white and red colors to place eyes, and wattle. You can pinch off the small pointy top of a candy corn and dip it in brown frosting for the beak.
  • Your turkey is complete!
