Hamula (apple cookies): Directions

Step 1

Wash the apples well. Cut each apple in half and slice out the core. Preheat the oven to 200°C / 400°F. Arrange the apple halves face-down on the foil and bake for approximately 40 minutes or until soft.

Step 2

Remove the skins from the soft cooked apples. The puree will be used both in the dough and in the mousse.

Step 3

Cookies. Mix oat and wheat flour, add a pinch of salt and sugar, and mix well. Add unsalted butter and rub ingredients together by hand until you get buttery lumps.

Step 4

Add an egg and 100 g / 3½ oz. of apple puree. Knead dense shortbread dough. Cover it with plastic wrap and leave it in the fridge to rest for 20-30 minutes.

Step 5

Roll out the dough between two sheets of baking paper into a layer 0.5 cm / 0.2 inch thick. Cut out cookie shapes with a glass or a cookie cutter, and place them on a baking paper-lined tray.

Step 6

Bake for 7-10 minutes. Leave the cookies to cool.

Step 7

Apple mousse. Mix egg yolks with 225 g / 8 oz. apple puree, milk and sugar in a heatproof bowl. Stirring carefully, heat the bowl with apple mousse for 10 minutes over a pan with simmering water until it thickens slightly.

Step 8

Serve the cookies with cooled apple mousse.
