شیرینی کشمشی
شیرینی کشمشی از شیرینی های سنتی – مقوی و خوشمزه ی ایرانی هست که خیلی سریع و فوری و با مواد ارزان قیمتی میشه تهیه کرد. این شیرینی های نرم- نازک و در عین حال بالشتکی که با کشمش پر شدن و میشه در فریزر برای یکماه هم نگه داری کرد.

 

مواد لازم

صدوپنجاه گرم کره ی بدون نمک

صد گرم آرد

صد گرم شکر

پنجاه گرم کشمش

دو عدد تخم مرغ

نصف ق چ وانیل

طرز تهیه
اجاق را با حرارت 150 درجه ی سانتیگراد گرم کنید.
کره را با شکر برای 3 دقیقه هم می زنیم ( با همزن برقی). تخم مرغ ها رو دانه دانه به مخلوط شکر و کره اضافه می کنیم و همچنان هم می زنیم. سپس وانیل و بعد کشمش و در آخر آرد رو کم کم اضافه می کنیم. 3-2 دقیقه ی دیگه با همزن مواد رو مخلوط می کنیم.
روی سینی فر رو با کاغذ آشپزی می پوشانیم و از خمیر آماده شده به اندازه ی گردو روی سینی پخت می چینیم. فاصله ی بین خمیرها باید از هم کمی زیاد باشه چون در حین پخت خمیر ها منبسط شده و بزرگتر میشن.
سینی رو داخل فر قرار داده و بگذارید به مدت 15 دقیقه یا زمانی که دور شیرینی ها طلایی رنگ بشه بپزند.

Hello everyone, my name is Rozina. I am Iranian with Azerbaijani roots. I was raised in Iran but I am living in Scotland. I am passionate about cooking and preparing meals for my family and friends. I tell them the story behind the meal, the pronunciation of their Iranian name and the spices that used in Persian cuisine. I am an archaeologist, photographer, a cooking teacher, and very interested to introduce Persian and Azerbaijani meals, desserts and beverages to people from different cultures, as I love to try food from all over the world. Iranian cuisine is a combination of rice with meat ( chicken, beef, lamb, fish, turkey), nuts, fruits, dried and fresh herbs and vegetables. Iranian food is a celebration of flavor, colour and spices such as: saffron, cinnamon, cardamom, turmeric, dried rose petals, dried limes, cumin, .... I share my recipes in Farsi/English along with step by step photos of preparation. I take all my own pictures. I have learned my traditional Persian and Azerbaijani recipes from my lovely mother, and she has learned from her mother. Over the years, I have experimented and learned more recipes. Some of my recipes are a fusion Western and Middle Eastern cuisine. Some are forgotten from Persian cooking tables and I try with posting and sharing those ones, to preserve them. All my recipes and pictures are property of rozinaspersiankitchen. I would be pleased if you would mention my site if you wish to use any of them. So, if you are interested to know about Persian /Azerbaijani food taste, you can try my website. I will be glad to hear your ideas about my recipes. :) Thank you for visiting my website.
