Bride Dessert (Gelin Tatlısı)


This recipe is again from my mom. She made this dessert for a tea party. Although I don’t like desserts with syrup that much, I must admit this one was awesome.

for syrup
3 1/2 cup sugar
3 cup water
1 tsp lemon juice

for cookies
3 cup flour
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 cup butter (almost melted)
1/2 luke warm milk
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup crushed walnut
1 tsp cinnamon


-Boil sugar and water. 5 minutes after it starts boiling, pour lemon juice and turn it off. Let it cool.
-In a bowl mix well butter, oil, baking powder, and milk.
-Add sifted flour and knead well.
-Make walnut size pieces from the dough. In your palm, first round each piece and then flatten them.
-For stuffing mix walnuts and cinnamon. Place 1 or 1/2 tsp of the stuffing in the middle of each piece. Fold it from both sides on top.
-Place them on a greased oven dish and bake at 380-390F until golden brown.
-As soon as you take them out of the oven, pour the cooled down syrup and let it soak.
-Once the little pieces soak the syrup, you can place them on a serving plate.
