So I thought I’d photograph the event and share it with you all.
Kifli is an Eastern European sweet treat that is made by rolling biscuit dough over a dollop of jam.
These little crescent delights are not exclusively Croatian, as my research uncovered, but this here is a Croatian recipe given to my mum .
These biscuits are so good they disappear from any kitchen bench in record time. I remember having friends from school over who would look at these biscuits in curiosity and go on to eat their fair share!
My whole family truly loves these biscuits, and I am lucky enough that my mum is still motivated enough to bake these wonderful treats for everyone. I have not yet attempted this recipe…and don’t anticipate I will have to as long as mum is there to spoil us all!
5 cups SR flour
1 cup SR Cream
125g butter 1 cup sugar
Jam (one that is very solid, not at all runny)
Mix softened butter with sour cream and beat in eggs.
Add sugar and flour, mix well.
When combined, put out on a floured bench and knead for a few minutes, so it all comes together nicely.
Roll into a log shape and cut into 5 equal pieces.
Roll each one out like a pizza, about a 1/4 inch thick (about 5mm).
Cut into 16 wedge shaped slices,sort of like you would slice a pizza. (see photo)
Place a tsp of jam on the thick edge of the wedge and roll up.
Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
