All biscuits in Albania are simple and can have sugar water added to them to form puddings. These butter biscuits use butter (homemade Albanian butter is amazing in this recipe!) and sugar to sweeten them.
We make these in the early evening, adding chocolate chips or marshmallows to them to make a treat snack with my children’s milk – warm, soft and chewy, you have to eat more then one.
Tip: Try adding chocolate chips, mini marshmallows or white chocolate!
Prepare the Dough
In a large mixing bowl, add the sugar, butter and syrup and mix well into a creamy texture.
Add the flour, soda and vanilla and fold into the mixture to form a dough. With flour on your hands, break the dough into 12 pieces and roll each one into balls.
Place the biscuits on a greased / lined baking tray 5cm apart and use the palm of your hand to flatten slightly. Sprinkle them all with some sugar.
Place in the oven at 180 degree for 12-15 minutes. The butter biscuits should be a light golden and squishy in the middle.
Leave to firm for 5 minutes before serving.
