Peach Cookies Recipe

Croatians say it’s a traditional dessert of their own (and call it Breskvice); Italians as well (and call them Pesche Dolci). I saw them at Austrians, Germans (Pfirsich Cookies), Spanish (Galletitas de melocotón), Russians (персиковые печенье), Hebrews (עוגיות אפרסק), americans (Peach Cookies), Turkish (Şeftali Kurabiye), Koreans (사랑스런 리얼 복숭아 쿠키). I bet you’d find them all the way to Tanganyika shore 🙂 We Romanians also have known these cookies for a long time, we love and cherish them.

I tried to make these cookies more bio-friendly, so I used baking soda instead of baking powder, and I replaced food coloring with fresh sour cherry juice and turmeric. Don’t worry about the taste, we’ll cover it with vanilla extract. Last but no least, I added cream to the composition which made the cookies soft and tender.

This recipe makes about 20 Peach Cookies (40 shells) of 4 cm diameter.
