Dominican biscuits

door Linda Terrizzi

'Buskuchi Dominicano' bring COLOR to your plate! The name already gives it away: These cookies originate from the Dominican Republic. There they are called 'galletas Martín' and are traditionally made by a local factory. This recipe was probably written down by Dominican expats who were homesick for their own island.

Either way, these little cookies with a hint of spice and a generous layer of meringue icing (“Suspirito” according to the Dominicans) are a perfect snack for those not too hungry. If you can at least stick to one cookie!



Ingredients:

For the dough

  • 50 gr butter, at room temperature
  • 76 gr icing sugar
  • 30 g brown sugar
  • a cap of vanilla essence
  • 1 tablespoon of milk
  • 1 egg
  • 200 gr flour
  • 1/4 sachet (4 gr) of baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons of cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ginger powder
  • 1 / 2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • a pinch of salt

For the icing

Preparation buskuchi Dominicano:

Mix 2/3 of the flour with the cornflour, baking powder, brown sugar, salt, cinnamon and ginger. Then set this aside. Keep the rest of the flour on hand for when the dough is not firm enough.

Then beat the butter with the icing sugar until creamy. Then add the egg, milk and vanilla essence.

Then mix this with the flour into a firm dough. Add a little more flour if the dough is too sticky. Finally, wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Then preheat the oven to 175 degrees. Now roll out the dough and cut out cookies of about 3cm in a round shape. Then place the cookies on a parchment-lined tray and bake for 8-12 minutes until lightly colored. Finally let them cool down completely.



To make the icing, beat the egg whites and then mix in the sugar. Then add if necessary a few drops of food coloring for a nice tan.

Then put the icing in a piping bag and pipe small roses on the cookies. Finally, let the icing dry for several hours (or better: overnight) until it is completely dry.

Enjoy your meal! You can store the cookies in a sealed box for up to a week.
