Cookies are also very popular with children, so they can be a much healthier option than commercial sweets. Children can eat cookies with yogurt, fruit or soaked in milk or just plain or with chocolate.

Homemade cookie recipe: how to prepare

First we break the eggs and separate the egg whites from the yolks. Divide the amount of sugar into two halves (70g by 70g).

Put the yolks in a larger bowl, then add half the amount of sugar, the turmeric and mix well until the sugar melts and is fully incorporated. Then add the salt, then the vanilla essence and mix until incorporated.

We will place a large sieve over the composition of the yolk and sift the entire amount of flour. We will NOT mix, we will leave the bowl like this.

Then, separately, whip the hard-boiled egg whites, like a meringue, preferably with a mixer. Then add gradually, while mixing, the rest of the sugar and lemon juice. We should get a solid and shiny meringue.

Above the bowl with the yolk composition, where we have sifted the flour, we put a third of the meringue composition and begin to incorporate it with a spatula, making wide and slow movements, so as not to destroy the small bubbles of the egg white foam. Then add a third of the meringue, then what remains, incorporating gently.

We put the dough obtained in the oven plate, the ideal would be to put them on a baking paper. You can put the dough with a small spoon or a shaped helmet. If you have them, you can use silicone molds.

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Place the cookie sheet in the preheated oven and let stand for about 10-15 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius. Check often so the cookies don’t brown too much!

When the cookies are ready and still warm, using a small sieve, scoop out a teaspoon of powdered sugar and sprinkle (through the sieve) over the cookies in the oven tray.

Allow to cool, then the cookies can be removed and placed on the plate.

Big appetite!
