You have to try this one. I know a strudel is not a cookie but if you slice this one thin enough, it will be like a cookie and it will be the first one to leave the serving cookies tray, so easy for a strudel recipe and you will end up hiding it from everybody, to be sure you will have enough left for your breakfast the day after…
225 gr. of butter
1 cup of cream (I use the whipping cream) but you can also use sour cream
2 cups of white flour
For the filling:
1 cup of any jam you have handy
1 cup of currants (dry raisins)
1 cup of walnuts broken in piece
1oz of rum (yes, the real one!)
Roll out in a nice rectangle, scoop on it 1/4 of the filling, spraying it to the corners. Roll the dough, like a log cake, deposit on an un-greased cookie sheet. Proceed with the others. Bake at 350F, 45 minutes.
Cut diagonally, and sprinkle with powder sugar, marvelous!
