Kiflice Recipe (Jam Filled Crescent Cookies)
With a tender flaky outer cookie and lucisous filled center, it's not a surprise that Croation kiflice, or jam-filled crescents are an absolute favorite dessert amongst grown-ups and kids alike.
Servings: 64 cookies
- 1 tsp instant yeast
- 2 tbsp sugar
- ½ cup milk warm
- 1 egg
- 2 egg yolks
- 3 tbsp sour cream
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 2 cups butter
- 1 cup plum jam or other filling of your choice
- 1 packet Vanilla sugar
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Dissolve yeast and 1 tsp of sugar in warm milk.
In a separate bowl combine eggs with sour cream with a fork. Add in yeast mixture.
In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, shredded butter and mix until blended together. Add in yeast mixture and mix on medium speed until well combined.
Remove from mixer and kneed briefly to form a large ball.
Divide into 8 even-sized balls.
Roll each to an 8 inch circle. Cut each circle into 8 trinagluar slices (like a pizza).
Add 1-2 tsps of filling to the wide edge of the triangle (as much as will stay in when the pastry is rolled).
Turn the corners in a little bit (helps to keep the filling from draining out).
Starting on the wide side of the triangle, roll each triangle to form small crescent shapes.
Arrange onto ungreased cookie sheet or parchment paper about 1” apart.
Bake at 350°F for 12-14 minutes, until slightly golden.
