Christmas for me, as for everyone else is full of memories. Family gatherings, gifts under the tree and of course hours and hours in the kitchen making sweets. A memory like those is the following recipe. Family vacation in the island of Chios and me with my godmother, we are making Christmas biscuits with beer! Back then I had no idea how things with the beer will continue and that our paths will meet again. Taste them and you will remember me!
Ingredients for our recipe:
For the biscuits:
For the syrup:
For the biscuits
In a bowl we mix the oil with the beer and the sugar until we melt the sugar. We continue by adding the orange juice and the cognac. We add baking soda, baking powder and the cinnamon. We mix them all together until we make a homogenized mixture. In that we slowly add the flour until we make soft dough. We make small oval biscuits and we bake in a medium feet oven (180οC) for 40-45 min.
For the syrup
We mix all the ingredients in a small saucepan, in medium heat we mix them until the sugar is melted. When it starts boiling we count 8 min. and we pull it out of fire.
When our syrup riches a lower temperature and while our biscuits are still hot we put them into the syrup and we serve them.
1. If you don’t have measurement cups and spoons, use a cup of tea and use the same one for all your measurements. Do the same with the spoons, so that you have the same measurement way for all your ingredients.
2. After you syrup your biscuits you can sprinkle them with grated almond or walnut.
Good Luck and Happy Holidays!
