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.

Steps

1
Done

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.

2
Done

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.

3
Done

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.

4
Done

Cooking

Brush eat ball with beaten egg and place in the oven at 180 degree for 20 minutes. The Kurabie will be a light golden colour and slightly squishy in the middle. Place on a cooling rack to cool.
