Do you like cookies? Do you like using common household ingredients? Do you like minimal work for maximum desserts? Well, listen up.
Everything you need to make these cookies (yes, all of the 4 ingredients) is probably in your house right at this very moment. “Please, make these cookies,” the ingredients scream, “they’re so delicious. I want to be useful!”
These cookies take all of 20 minutes start-to-mouth to make, and they’re crumbly (like sand, get it?) and perfectly nutty. And anyway, I think it’s safe to say that the less work involved, the better, no?
..so I’ve been favoring savory pastries lately. Sue me.
I keep seeing these really pretty “crossover pastries” everywhere, and they just seem so darn beautiful. I’d been thinking about trying it for a while, but didn’t get around to it. Today, however, I made my own dough and got to work.
Now, from what I’ve seen, crossovers are usually made with puff pastry dough. I found another one of my grandma’s recipes, this time for the dough. It is so easy to make it’s almost criminal, and you don’t even need a mixer. You just stir with your fingers and bam! dough. Also, there’s no egg in this recipe, except for the egg wash on top.
