austrian raspberry shortbread – rakouské malinové sušenky

This is another awesome recipe from smitten kitchen, you can find the original here. The recipe makes a LOT of shortbread- this is pretty much perfect for anything where you’re baking for lots of people. Or just to eat by yourself (essay crisis, anyone?)

You need: 1 pound (460g) unsalted butter, slightly softened; 4 egg yolks; 2 cups granulated sugar (i used golden caster sugar); 4 cups plain flour; 2 teaspoons baking powder; 1/4 teaspoon salt; 1 cup raspberry jam (if you warm this up in the microwave and stir it with a fork it will be easier to spread as it will be runnier)

Cream butter until it’s fluffy, then add the egg yolks and give it a whizz until it’s all combined. In a separate bowl mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix the lot together and once it is combined, tip out onto a floured surface to shape into two balls of dough. Wrap these in clingfilm and stick them in a freezer for 3 hours.

Preheat the oven to about 170 c. Line a 9 x 13 inch baking tinwith greaseproof paper, and grate the first ball of dough into the bottom of the pan, making sure you have a nice even layer of dough shreds. Drizzle the jam evenly over the surface, then grate the other ball of dough on top. Don’t press down on the grated dough, or you won’t get the crumbly effect.

Stick it all in the oven for about 45 mins (or a little longer, it depends on your oven) and pull it out once it’s golden brown on top. Cut into pieces once cool.

Tahle dobrota je jako kombinace koláče a sušenky. Těsto se dá zmrazit a pak když se objeví návštěva, nebo jen chcete něco na zub, se dá rozmrazit a jednoduše a rychle upéct.

Suroviny: 460g másla, 4 žloutky, 450g bílého cukru, 500g mouky; 2 lžičky prášku na pečivo, 0.25 lžičky soli; 250g malinového džemu.

Nejdříve uděláme těsto. Měkké máslo ušleháme dokud není smetanové. Přidáme žloutky a mícháme. V jiné misce smícháme mouku, cukr, prášek na pečivo, a sůl. Tu směs přidáme k máslu, a všechno zpracujeme. Těsto rozpůlíme, a každou půlku zabalíme do fólie. Dáme do mrazničky a necháme alespoň 3 hodiny.

Do velkýho plechu na koláč dáme pečící papír. Nastrouháme první půlku těsta a rozprostřeme na dně. To polijeme džemem, a na džem nastrouháme druhou půlku těsta. Důležité je nastrouhané těsto nemačkat. Pečeme asi 45 minut (nebo dokud vrch není do zlato-hněda) 170 stupnů c. Po vychladnutí nakrájíme na kousky.
