Here is recipe for grandma style cookies that I love very much!
800 grams (7 ¼ cups) of flour
500 grams (2 ¼ cups) of margarine
8 tablespoons of water
4 tablespoons of vinegar
Make a dough. You’ll need to divide it in several parts because it is a pretty large dough. Roll each part of the dough at the time on thickness of about 2 milimeters (about 0,04 inch), so it should be thin. Cut the cookies with a round cutter or a glass.
Jam (I suggest plum jam)
Put a 1/3 or ½ teaspoon of jam on each cookie and fold it. You’ll get a shell shape. To close the shells, press the upper side to bottom side lightly with fingers and then with a fork to get rounded edge like a shell. I think that you can do it with plastic press ravioli maker, too. I never tried because I have very big one so it is not suitable for cookies.
Bake in preheat oven on 350 F (170-180°C) till they get light golden color. They’ll be darker on the bottom side. It’ll take about 20 minutes or more, but I would check it after 15 minutes, just in case :).
When the cookies are baked, roll in the confectioners sugar while they are still hot.
I hope you’ll like and try this recipe. I love these cookies very much. They are true grandma style cookies :).
