'Farm - bread' cookies

I tasted these cookies for the first at a small local food exhibition/competition. Most of the foods displayed there were typical Slovene ‘farm’ food. And these ‘farm - bread cookies’ were among them. They looked exactly like little farm baked brown breads with nice cracks on top and dusted with flour, and hence the name. They were delicious, and I wanted to have the recipe so badly. Blaž’s grandma and mama did not know it. So, when we went to Blaž’s aunt’s place last weekend, I asked her if she knows. And she did!! She had got the recipe in some booklet that came with newspaper during Christmas one year with recipes of cookies and cakes, and had made it before. The cookies take very little time to prepare and bake. A clean simple recipe it is. They look so tempting. And taste so wonderful. The outside is very crunchy, and then inside, the flavors melt in the mouth. An interesting combination of textures, crunch, and melting flavors these cookies are.

(Makes ~50)

3 egg yolks
250g coconut flour
120g chocolate powder
120g ground walnut
3 egg whites
200g sugar powder
For coating: 100g sugar powder


1.      Mix well the egg yolks, coconut flour, ground walnut and chocolate powder.
2.      Beat the egg whites to form hard peaks. While beating, slowly add the sugar powder.
3.      Gently fold the beaten egg white into the coconut flour mix to form a uniform mass.
4.      With wet hand make little balls (~2cm) and roll them in sugar powder.
5.      Bake in pre-heated oven at 175°C for around 15 minutes (on the middle rack). While baking, the cookies will crack like farm-made bread.
6.      After cooling, they should be crunchy outside and soft inside.
