I started this year with stories and photos and I will continue with another story. This is the story: Beautiful morning in the kitchen with a little boy almost 3 years old, flour everywhere, my hands full, his hands full, his clothes covered in flour, no time for photos, lots of fun and lots of cleaning in the end. But, one of the best days of my life.
Kids get bored so fast and you need to give them something to play all the time. This is what I did with my son that morning. I gave him everything, because I needed to finish what we started. So I end up with flour on the floor, on the chair, in my hair, in his hair, etc. So between making the biscuits and cooking them in the oven I didn’t have time to make them look good.
I have a “I love biscuits” stamp for over a year and I was dying to use it. That morning, I decided to use it,but all my fun went away when I saw I will not have time to play with it. So my biscuits look like they were in a war, my kitchen looked like it gone break done soon, but my kid was so happy so I would not care less.
I just hope that I saved the day with the photos. Sometimes a good photo can save a disaster in the kitchen.
– 3 eggs
– 4 yolks
– 2 tablespoon sour cream
– 1 glass brown sugar
– 200 g butter
– 1 teaspoon ammonia (or baking powder)
– 1 cup crushed nuts
Preheat oven at 200 degrees Celsius. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Put the ammonia in a glass and add lemon juice on top. Mix butter with sugar till you have a cream. Add the eggs, yolks, sour cream, ammonia and the nuts. Start adding the flour till you get a hard dough. Put it in the fridge for 1 hour. Take it out.
Roll out dough to about a 1.25 cm thickness. Cut out biscuits with a lightly floured round cookie cutter. Place on prepared baking sheet and brush the tops with the whites and bake for about 10 –15 minutes or until the tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center of the biscuit comes out clean. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack. Serve them simple or make a cream and glue 2 biscuits together. Enjoy!
