We baked an amazing Hungarian cookie today for our big Sunday lunch; it is called "Reszelt Túrós." The duration of the preparation lasts about fifteen minutes, but it needs to be baked in the oven for about an hour. I'm travelling back to Budapest today and I'm sure that my roommate in the dormitory will be extremely happy, because this is her favorite cookie. For this week's recipe I took many pictures and I also made a video, so you will see how easy it is to prepare this tasty goody. Here is the recipe, don't be afraid to try it:
Ingredients (for the pasta)
40 dkg (14,1 oz) flour (liszt)
15 dkg (5,3 oz) powered sugar (porcukor)
1 egg’s yolk
25 dkg (8,82 oz) margarine (margarin)

How to become master of the Hungarian kitchen #8
Mush together the ingredients of the dough. (See the video below) Put the white of the egg in a separate bowl because you will use it for the filling later. After the pasta is ready, split it into two. Put the dough to the fridge while you are preparing the filling.
Preparing the filling doesn't last more then 5 minutes. Mix together the 3 eggs yolks, vanilla sugar, pudding powder and the powdered sugar. Add the curd cheese, the whipped foamy 4 egg whites adding raisins if you like. Find a medium sized baking pan and evenly grate one part of the dough on the bottom of the pan. Put the filling over this layer of dough, and then grate the balance of the dough on top.
In a preheated oven, on 350 Fahrenheit (180 Celsius), bake the cookie for about 50-60 minutes. In order to make sure your cookie is ready or not, stick a toothpick into it and if it comes out dry, the cookie is ready. Allow it to fully cool, and then cut it into little squares. Enjoy!
