These gorgeous window-like cookies are almost too pretty to eat!

Ingredients (10)

Dough

Nougat

Start Cooking

Make the Cookies

Yields 30 cookies.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).

  2. To make the dough, cream margarine, sugar, and vanilla sugar until smooth. Add egg and mix for another minute, then add flour. If dough is crumbly, add one to two tablespoons cold water until dough is smooth and easy to work with.

    Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour.

  3. To prepare the nougat, place corn syrup in saucepan and heat over low flame. Add sugar and margarine while stirring. Keep stirring until margarine melts, then add almonds and citrus peels. Mix until smooth and remove from flame.

  4. Pour mixture onto silicon mat or Gefen Easy Baking Parchment Paper surface and cover with parchment paper. Using a rolling pin, roll out to a rectangle 1/4-inch thick. Refrigerate.

  5. Remove the dough from refrigerator. Lightly flour work surface and dough. Roll dough out to a 1/4-inch thick sheet. Using 3-inch round cookie cutter, cut out cookies. Place on silicon pan or baking pan lined with parchment paper. Cut out 2-inch circle from the middle of each cookie and remove the inner circle to make 1-inch dough rings.

  6. Remove nougat from refrigerator and cut into 1-inch squares or break off similar-sized chunks. Place each square in center of dough ring. (Nougat will melt and spread to fill the entire ring during baking.)

  7. Bake for 15–20 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Remove from oven and allow to cool.

  8. Wait until the cookies are completely cool to remove from the baking trays; otherwise they’ll fall apart. You should have gorgeous window-like cookies.

Note:

These cookies keep well in a sealed container for two weeks, and much longer in the freezer.

 

Tip:

•Don’t let the corn syrup and margarine mixture get too hot, because the margarine will end up floating to the top.
•For a more elegant look, cut the citrus peels into very fine cubes.
•You can break the slivered almonds into smaller pieces as well.

    I think that the shuk has many dried fruit stores. But here is a recipe you can use to make it at home. Take half cup citrus peels (clean them well) Place peel strips in large saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes longer. Drain. Repeat this process two more times. Take 1/4 cup sugar and 2 Tablespoons water in saucepan and bring to boil. Put peel in mixture. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes till reduced. Watch this carefully since sugar and water carmelizes fast. Maybe double recipe and keep extra on side.
