If you like Italian cookies, try this fantastic recipe!!
170gr (0.75cup – 6oz) flour
220gr (0.8 – 7oz) almonds flour
150gr (0.6cup – 5oz) sugar
160gr (0.7cup – 5.6oz) butter
100gr (0.4cup – 3.5oz) raisins
1 pinch of salt
First of all put raisins in warm water to soften, then squeeze them and dry them with a cloth.
Mix together both flours, sugar and salt, then add eggs, cold butter and finally raisins. Stir well.
Place the dough in a polythene bag and leave it in the fridge for 1 hour to rest.
For the cooking: now it’s up to you, you can choose between crunchy or soft cookies (I still can’t decide which one I prefer!).
For soft ones, form little balls (big as a nut) and place them on a baking sheet, then bake at 160°C (310F) for 10-11 minutes (take out when they start colouring on the edges).
For crunchy ones, after formed little balls press them lightly and bake at 160°C (310F) for 15-17 minutes (the should be a nice brown colour).
Sprinkle them with icing sugar when still hot.
