HAZELNUT COOKIES ( FINDIKLI KURABIYE )



These  little cookies are so nice and ready in no time for tea. it is my friend Funda's recipe with hazelnuts and raisins in, but you can use any dried fruit you desire. I also added the rose water which made it lovely and fragrant.

YOU NEED
  • 1 cup natural yogurt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs ( keep one yolk for the top of the cookies )
  • Half a cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tbls chopped hazelnuts
  • 2 tbsp raisins
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2tbsp rose water
  • 4 cups self raising flour
First mix the sugar and oil well together, add the beaten eggs. Mix  well. Add the hazelnuts, raisins, cinnamon to the flour and mix with all the ingredients into a smooth dough with the rose water. Shape into rounds, brush it with egg yolk and decorate with whole hazelnuts. Cook in pre-heated oven on 175C for 10-15 minutes. Serve warm.
