Raisin-Sugar Cookies

(Uzumlu-Toz Sekerli Kurabiye)

Raisin-Sugar Cookies
125 gr unsalted butter, room temperature
4 tablespoon full (a little bit more then 1/3 cup) plain yogurt
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
1/2 tsp baking powder
~2 1/2 cups flour
6 tbsp Sultana or Golden raisins

1 egg white, lightly whisked
4-5 tbsp sugar

Mix all the ingredients except raisins, knead. When the dough comes together, add the raisins and knead again. Make chestnut-sized balls with your hands. First dip in egg white, then sugar only on one part of the ball. Place them on parchment paper on an oven tray with the sugar sides on top.

Preheat the oven to 385 F (190 C) and bake for about 25-30 minutes, until the tops take a light pink colour.

Makes 16-17 cookies.

Mmmmmmm, they look delicious, can't wait to try them out. I think you might have made an error: you wrote egg yolk in the ingredients but egg white in the recipe.

One of the dough ingredients is egg yolk. "Mix all the ingredients except raisins, knead."
One of the glaze ingredients is egg white. "First dip in egg white, then sugar only on one part of the ball. "

Dear Binnur,
I found your recipe for pogaca with feta and the one for breakfast buns... but I can't find the recipe of pogaca with yeast - is it somewhere on the website? I love them everytime i visit my boyfriend's family in Turkey and I'd really like to try them out myself.
Thanks, elaine

but wanna ask you,u wrote 2cups of flour for me i kept more than that as the dough was very sticky,and for baking it it took almost 1 hour :(??..not 25min,i think it depends also on the settings of the oven

Merhaba Guzel,
I corected it, thank you:)
If your oven bakes slowly, you may increase the heat up to 400 F!
