Italian Cookies - Dolce Romias

Butter cookies. This is a lovely butter cookie recipe. I found out it on Star Online. It's a gorgeous recipe. Simple and kids can make it so easily without a cry.


250g butter, 40g egg white, 300g all-purpose flour, 2g salt, 100g icing sugar, 4g baking powder

Cream butter, add icing sugar and salt. Whisking thoroughly.

Add egg white and incorporate the sifted flour with baking powder.

Pipe the mixture onto a tray lined with parchment paper in shape of a small crown using daisy shaped nozzle or large fluted nozzle.

Crown filling

140g cream (35% fat), 140g glucose syrup, 140g brown sugar, 140g almond flake (crushed)

Put all ingredients in a pan and bring it to a boil. Then cool it.

Using a small spoon, fill the centre of the crown without going over the edge.

Bake filled cookies for 10-12mins in a 160 degrees Celcius oven.

The filling should have caramel appearance and the crown should be golden colour. Leave it to cool on the parchment paper.

Have your kids involved. There is a lot your kids can learn from this simple yet tasty recipe.

Pick a theme. Some suggestions;
1. temperature - celcious and farenheit - to measure how hot or cold something is
2. measurements
3. motor skills for the younger ones - this recipe uses a lot of manual labour!
4. arranging and organising
5. time

Happy Cooking and Teaching
