So it turns out that we're pretty talented at baking. We made a special Hungarian dessert called Csodakifli, which translates to "miracle-super-awesome-crescent-shaped-pastry". Waldorf was particularly helpful at clean up time; he's the cutest vacuum cleaner I've ever seen.
Here is the recipe (you will need some help- we definitely did!):
“Miracle Crescent Pastry” - “Csodakifli"
2 cups of flour
1 cup of unsalted butter
a heaping tablespoon of yeast
¾ cup sour cream
juice of ½ a lemon
1/8 teaspoon of salt
½ cup powder sugar
First mix the butter, flour, and powder sugar. Add yeast, sour cream, juice of the lemon, and salt. Mix all ingredients very well. Your hands should be more or less clean... if they're not, then either you've been playing too much in the sandbox, or you should add more flour to the dough. Waldorf doesn't get to touch the dough because he doesn't wear socks when he is outside. The dough should be sticky but not liquidy.
Cool the dough in the freezer or refrigerator for an hour (you just want it to be cold, not frozen).
Home-made jam, chocolate powder, or walnut paste.
Take 1 cup of finely ground walnuts and mix with enough milk to be able to cook without burning the walnuts. Add ¾ cup sugar. Mix well. Cook on low/medium heat, stirring often, until the milk has evaporated some. Your paste is ready to be spread... and tasted!
Preheat the oven to 359 degrees. Roll out the dough so that it's very, very thin (1 milimeter)! Cut into squares and spread the filling you have made or bought. Roll them up and shape them so that they look like little crescents. Put the crescents on a cookie sheet and bake them for 35-40 minutes until they are golden brown.
YUMMMMMMM!!!!!! Waldorf doesn't get any of the chocolate ones.
oooo tasty. It's supposed to look like this:
So, we definitely nailed it:
