Jam Crescent Pastries(Cornulete cu gem)

I always loved these delicious crescent pastries, popular in many Eastern European countries. I already have on my blog another version of them, made with a different type of dough.

Banana Walnuts Chocolate Chips Soft Cookies

Banana Walnuts Chocolate Chips Soft Cookies

These banana walnuts chocolate chips soft cookies are one of my favorites cookies so far. I am personally not a big fan of crunchy cookies, but I do love the "cakey" or the chewy ones. I also do not like sweets that are very sweet, as I grew up back in Europe with sweets that had more flavor than sugar. If you are with me on this one, and you do not like things very sweet, these are the cookies…

If you never tried chocolate and Earl Grey tea together, you missed a lot…I did too, as it was for the first time when I made these Chocolate Cookies with Earl Grey Ganache. Rounds of chocolate sugar cookies are joined together with Earl Grey tea ganache, which adds the citrus taste and perfume of the bergamot orange to the filling.

The dough is cut with a water glass or a round cookie cutter, then a dollop of jam is placed in the middle. My grandmother used to fold the cookie in half and seal it with a fork. Relatively easy to make, the cookies are a delicious snack or dessert to have around. Dust these…
