PEACH COOKIES FILLED WITH PASTRY CREAM

Peach cookies filled with pastry cream- Recipes with olive oil

I love this dessert because it combines the sweetness of pastry cream with a slightly alcoholic aroma.

INGREDIENTS FOR ABOUT 30 PASTRIES

3 eggs

300 g of sugar

140 g of olive oil

23 g of baking powder

800 g of all-purpose flour

60 ml of milk

Liqueur to dampen the peach cookies

140 g of Alchermes

200 g of Martini

Pastry cream to fill the peach cookies

PREPARATION

Line two baking trays with greaseproof paper.

Preheat oven to 190°C.

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs with the sugar, then mix in all the olive oil, then the milk, then the flour and the baking powder. The dough must be solid enough for you to knead it with your hands. Take little bits of dough and knead them to form little balls (around 4-5 cm in diameter). Place the dough balls on the baking try, some distance from each other, to avoid them sticking together. If the dough is not solid enough and the dough balls flatten out when you put them on the baking tray, you’ll need to add more flour. Bake for about 8 minutes, until golden. To prepare the pastries, combine the cookies in pairs, so that after the first baking, you can test the pastry size and adjust the size of dough balls to your liking before doing any further baking. Once the cookies are baked, let them cool and if you’re not going to prepare the pastries immediately, wrap them in a cloth. Properly stored cookies may be used even 4-5 days after baking.

Using the tip of a knife, carve out a small hole in the flat side of the cookies.

Once you have carved holes in all the cookies, mix alchermes, martini and a tablespoon of sugar together in a bowl.Take a cookie  and dip it in the liqueur; once it is wet on both sides, let it drip with the carved side facing down onto a plate.

When you have dampened 6 cookies, fill one cookie with a generous teaspoon of pastry cream and combine it with an “empty” cookie.

Take the pastry and roll it up in the sugar until it is covered. Finally, put the pastry in a pastry case.
If you dip the biscuit for too long in the liqueur, it may break, whereas if you dip it for too short a time, it may end up being dry. Experiment. Everything depends on the texture of the cookie. Then start over, dampening more cookies.

When you have prepared all the pastries, garnish them any way you want. I used a mint leaf – you could perhaps use some cream with a cherry on top. Keep them in the refrigerator. Prepare the pastries at least 8 hours before eating – that way, they’ll be at their best.

    I am not sure what is meant by “martini.” The ingredients list martini but to my knowledge that’s a mixed drink with gin and vermouth or maybe that’s what they mean.

      Hello Pastry Lovery ! Martini is a brand of vermouth very common in Italy, but every brand of vermouth is ok!
