Cooking shortbread rings with nuts:

Step 1: Knead the dough.

Take a deep bowl, break an egg there, separate the yolk from another egg and set it aside, and send the protein to the future dough. Add butter, previously removed from the refrigerator and warmed to room temperature, sugar or icing sugar, baking powder, vanilla sugar and crushed salt. Beat the dough with a mixer or whisk until until sugar dissolves. Then add the flour and knead the dough. To make it easier to roll out the dough, you need to put it in the refrigerator for a while. The optimum temperature of the test is 20 degrees.

Step 2: Form the cookie.

Generously sprinkle the table with flour for rolling, take chilled dough, a rolling pin, and roll the dough into a layer 5-6 mm thick. Using molds, we form rings with a diameter of 8-9 cm and make a recess with a diameter of 2 cm inside each of them. For lack of special molds, you can use a glass and a cork from a plastic bottle. Dough trimmings can be quickly molded, rolled and cut again. Just do not knead them for a long time. We prepare the baking sheet - cover it with baking paper, put the rings on it and put in the freezer for 15-20 minutes. This is advisable since it will be much easier to work with cookies after that.

Step 3: Grease and sprinkle cookies before traveling to the oven.

While the rings are cooling, finely chop the nuts and fry them for 10 minutes, stirring constantly. Speaking of nuts, you can take any nuts that you like most. But remembering Soviet cookies, only peanuts always come to mind. We take the blanks from the refrigerator, set them in front of us, next to the toasted nuts and separately beaten yolk. We pick up a brush and start creating! Lubricate each ring with yolk and turn it oiled side on a plate with nuts. The yolk is necessary, because without it, the nuts will not hold. When everything is ready, immerse the baking sheet in the oven and bake cookies at a temperature of 200 degrees for no longer than 10 minutes. Be sure to keep it brown.

Step 4: Serve the sand rings with nuts to the table.

Sand rings with nuts will best complement the taste and aroma of tea and freshly brewed coffee. Feel a nice crunch of cookies and you will want to enjoy it again and again! Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- - You can find out that sugar has dissolved in the dough by rubbing the mixture between your fingers, large grains of sand should not be felt.

- - Instead of sugar, it is very convenient to use powdered sugar, since sugar dissolves longer.

- - You can’t fry the nuts, but in this case the cookies will have a different flavor.

- - Peanuts, if you use these nuts as a filling, it is better to peel if roasted.
