Sweet snail cookies

I saw this recipe a long time ago in one of the culinary groups on Facebook, published by Nela Raykova. Her cookies were very small (maybe about 3-4 cm as far as you can tell by the picture) and were twisted as an eight. What impressed me most was the zeal with which she has thinned every piece of dough for the length and thickness of a pretzel stick and swirled them in tiny, exquisite works of art.

Well, I certainly have neither the time nor the patience for something like that, so I was a little careless in my own way! 😉 I just thinned the dough, rolled it up and cut out disks. But on the other hand, I bet on variations. The first are with just crystal sugar, the second are sprinkled with icing sugar and the third are with homemade cherry jam. At home, those with the icing sugar were the most appreciated (the sweetest ones, of course!) You can try to make them and with melted chocolate, they will become great! And why not with some salty stuffing – it will work very well since there is no sugar in the dough and the taste of the cookie depends 100% on what you add to it.

Here, look at the recipe and how I prepared it.

Enjoy! 🙂

3

Add the dry yeast. Stir with a whisk.

4

Start adding flour by sifting it. Since each flour is different, each dough will take a different amount of flour, so it's a good idea to start adding it a little by little. The lard in the dough is quite a lot, so even for a beginner it won't be difficult to get a well-formed ball of dough.

Once the dough ball begins to form,...

...transfer it to a floured top and knead until smooth.

7

Divide the dough into two equal parts. Let the dough rest for about 5-10 minutes.
Now it begins the shaping of the different types of cookies, which depends on your imagination and taste.

Preparation of Option 1:
8

In the first option, take one ball of dough and roll it out on a very thin rectangular crust - about 1-2 mm.

9

Sprinkle the crust with sugar and press firmly with a rolling pin to make sure it will stick to the surface of the dough.

10

Cut the dough in two from the short side. This will give you two narrower rectangles.

11

Make a tight roll from the wide side of the rectangle. If you want to get bigger rolls, don't cut the rectangle in two.

12

From the roll, cut disks about 0.5 cm thick.

13

Put them in a baking pan lined with parchment paper or a Teflon pad. If you want the sweets to become more fluffy, let them rest for about 10-15 minutes.

14

Bake the "snails" at 180 degrees for about 10 minutes, being careful not to burn them.

Preparation of Option 2:

Even without the extra sugar, the "snails" are sweet enough. But if you are a true sweet lover, you can further roll the snails in icing sugar mixed with vanilla while they are still warm.

Preparation of Option 3:
16

For Option 3, roll the second ball of dough. Spread the jam evenly on the crust.

17

Cut the disks. Place the "snails" in a baking pan covered with parchment paper or a Teflon pad. Sprinkle on top with about 1/2 tsp. sugar each. If you want the "snails" to be more fluffy, let them stand for about 10-15 minutes in the baking pan, but if you have already prepared the previous options from the first ball of dough, then the second has already rested. Whatever you do, you won't go wrong 🙂
