Preparation time : 30 minutes
Cooking time : 15 minutes
For the cookies mixture:
2½ cups butter or 600 g, cut into small pieces
9 cups plain flour or 1200 g
1 teaspoon salt
2½ cups icing sugar or 300 g
1 tin NESTLÉ® Sweetened Condensed Milk or 397 g
3 tablespoons rose water
6 tablespoons peanut oil or 90 g
For the filling:
½ cup chocolate chips or 120 g
½ cup dried figs or 160 g, finely chopped
In a mixer bowl, combine the butter, flour, salt and icing sugar, and mix with a paddle to obtain crumbly dough. Add gradually the NESTLÉ® Sweetened Condensed Milk into the mixture, and then the rosewater and nuts oil to form dough. Keep in the fridge for 20 minutes.
To prepare the filling, combine the chocolate chips and dry figs and keep aside.
Remove the dough from the fridge; take medium sized pieces of the dough and form each portion into a ball.
Make a space in the center of each ball by pushing your finger through from one end; stuff it with the filling and close it by pressing firmly.
Use a wooden mold to form a pattern on the upper side of each ball.
Arrange the cookies in a non-stick pan and bake in a preheated oven at 160 °C for 12-15 minutes. Keep aside to cool down and serve.
Cooking tips : Baking the cookies at a temperature as low as 160 °C is ideal for the transformation of the butter.
