Lady fingers


Domino cookies

  • 100 GRAM FLOUR
  • 3 EGGS, split
  • 150 GRAM SUGAR
    • 250 GRAM FLOUR
    • 125 GRAM SUGAR
    • 125 GRAM BUTTER
    • 3 TBSP CACAO
    • 1 EGG, split
    Whisk the egg whites until they are fluffy. Slowly add half of the sugar, keep whisking. Put the egg yolks with the remaining sugar, the vanilla sugar and a tablespoon of hot water in a bowl and put this bowl in a pan of hot water. Beat the mixture 5 minutes, using an electric mixer. Add the four. Add the egg whites, stir carefully. Make lady finger shaped cookies on a greased baking tray with a piping bag. Bake the cookies 10-15 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.

    Knead the butter, sugar and flour and a pinch of salt together and divide the dough in three parts. Add the cacao to one part. Put the dough in the fridge for half an hour. Roll both the white and the brown dough into two long thin rolls, so you have four rolls. Lay a brown and a white one together and glue them with egg white. Put a brown one on top of the white and a white one on top of the brown, use some egg white again. Roll out the remaining dough into a thin rectangle and fold it around the cookie bar. Now cut slices and brush these with egg whites. Put them on the oven tray. Bake 15 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.

    These cookies look very similar to chessboard cookies, but the composition is different.
