I survived Christmas day.
There were moments of breathlessness or maybe just not wanting to breathe…
Tradition crept in throughout the day, dutifully performed. These cookies are a tradition.
It’s Boxing Day, the sun is shining, my family is healthy. Perspective is clearing…
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, chilled and cut into 8 pieces
4 ounces cream cheese
2 tablespoons buttermilk
Egg white, lightly beaten
Place flour and salt in the bowl of your food processor – pulse to combine
Add butter pieces and pulse 10 times
Add cream cheese and pulse until combined
Add buttermilk and pulse until mixture pulls away from the bowl
Divide dough into 3 equal pieces and flatten into discs.
Wrap each disc in plastic and refrigerate for 3 hours
Preheat oven 375*F
On a well floured board, roll discs into circles 1/8 inch thick with a rolling pin
Spread top with 2 tablespoons raspberry jam and sprinkle with coconut
Divide the circle into 8 triangles
Starting at the wide end, roll the triangles up and place on a parchment lined baking sheet
Brush each cookie with egg white then sprinkle with sanding sugar
Chill rolled cookies for 15 minutes before baking
Cookies should be puffed and golden.
Cool on a rack then store in a well sealed container for up to 3 days or freeze up to 3 months
THE LOVE: Using homemade raspberry jam takes these cookies to another level!
