One of my worst nightmares is to get a cold during summer! Summer colds get on my nerves and unfortunately it invariably happens to me every year. A few days ago I had a sore throat and therefore I tried a tea that I had never had before. I really enjoyed egyptian tea leaves and the good thing is that I didn’t have to add sugar or honey. The perfect companion for a cup of tea are these yummy cookies filled with a delicious apricot jam. They are healthy and contain no butter or sugar. I used an aromatic honey and extra virgin olive oil instead. You can find all these amazing greek products at the online delicatessen yoleni’s.
Don’t forget that with every order that contains an olive oil, Yoleni’s has a yummy gift for you: you will be sent a package of «chiotiko kelari» lasagne chips! The only thing you have to do is use the promocode yvlaz14oil. Take care, my dear friends!
1/2 cup walnuts, finely ground (flour texture)
3/4 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp «My olive oil» extra virgin olive oil
4 Tbsp «Meligyris» Cretan organic woodland honey with thyme & wild herbs or maple syrup
zest of 1 lemon
2 Tbsp lemon juice
a pinch of Sea salt flakes from Kythira island
«Papagiannides» kaisi apricot jam
«Cretan Herbs» Egyptian tea leaves
In a food processor combine olive oil, maple syrup/honey, lemon juice and zest. Combine flour with walnuts and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture into the wet ingredients. When you get a dough (if it is sticky, add some more flour), cover dough with a plastic wrap and cool in the fridge for 30 minutes. Then roll out the dough and form cookies with cookie cutters. Place them on a baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in preheated oven at 180 C for about 10 minutes. (baking time depends on their thickness). When ready, remove from baking pan and allow to cool. Then spread apricot jam on a cookie and cover it with another one. They are the perfect companion for a cup with Egyptian tea leaves. Enjoy!
