There’s nothing quite like a homemade biscuit especially when fresh straight from the oven and these are a family favourite in our house!
Albanian Kurabie is just like eating scones, the texture, the smell and the taste is very similar. Traditionally, these cookies are eaten as they are – they don’t get hard and keep for many days. However, we also serve them as an Albanian dessert by soaking them in some sugar water – yum!
Whenever I am eating these cookies I always feel like breaking them in half, spreading on some cream and adding some jam.
They come in two flavours plain / vanilla or lemon but I’ve experimented and found that you can add shredded coconut to the mixture to make some coconut versions or sprinkle with icing sugar for a sweeter taste.
Prepare the Dough
In a large mixing bowl add all the ingredients and mix together until a dough is formed. The dough should be stick - add extra flour if you find the mixture too sticky to work with.
Using the extra melted butter, rub some over your hands before breaking the dough into 20 equal sized pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Before rolling each ball rub melted butter over your hands each time.
Place the balls of dough onto a greased / lined baking tray 5cm apart - you will need to split the balls into two batches cooking one batch at a time.
