Orea – Fried cookies

door Linda Terrizzi

Orea is literally translated "ears". Yet these tasty, sweet dough-based cookies (thankfully!) aren't made of that.

Due to their shape, they look a bit like pig's ears and owe their name to that. Fortunately, the parable ends there. The orea are made simply and quickly. An ideal recipe for when you are in a hurry. You can eat them in different ways, with the topping you like best.



Ingredients

The orea are simple biscuits. You make them from soda dough, which is sweetened and later fried. It is best to fry in oil (not in deep-frying fat!) So that the cookies do not get a hard layer when they cool down.

After baking, the orea is sprinkled with powdered sugar and possibly some cinnamon. A nice variation on this is to decorate them with dashes of melted chocolate. Orea are very tasty both hot and cold!orea Antillean biscuits hamansoren fried biscuits Curaçao Aruba Bonaire recipe Jurino
