INGREDIENTS FOR YIELDS
For the cookies:
1/3 cup (75g) Butter, cold
4 tablespoons (30g) Powdered sugar
1/4 teaspoon Salt
3/4 cup + 1 tablespoon (100g) Flour
2 tablespoons Milk, cold
For the meringue:
3 egg whites (100g)
3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons cup (175g) Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla paste
For the chocolate cover:
250g Dark chocolate
2 tablespoon Vegetable oil
Make the cookies: in a food processor or using a hand dough blender, blend butter, powdered sugar, flour. Blend until crumbs are formed.
Add milk and blend until dough is formed.
Transfer to clean working surface and shape into a flat disk form. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 170C (340F)
On a floured working surface roll out the dough into 1/4-inch (1/2cm) thickness. Using a cookie cutter, cut 2-inch (5cm) circles.
Bake the cookies for 12-14 minutes or until lightly golden, set aside to cool completely.
Make the meringue: in a bowl of a stand mixer combine egg whites and sugar. Place the bowl over a double boiler (a pot with simmering water). Mix until sugar dissolves or until reaches 65C.
Attach the bowl to the mixer and whisk on high speed for 7-8 minutes, until stiff peaks form. Add vanilla paste and stir.
Transfer the meringue to a piping bag fitted with a large round piping tip (12-15 mm).
Pipe the meringue over the cookies as shown in the video. Freeze the cookies for at least 2 hours.
Make the chocolate cover: in a dip bowl or a measuring cup melt dark chocolate with oil.
Now you have two ways to cover the krembo. First way: arrange the krembo on a cooling rack, pour melted chocolate over the krembo. Second way: dip the krembo, upside down in the melted chocolate.
Allow to set before serving.
* Keep the krembo in the freezer up to 1 week
* You can cover the krembo with dark chocolate, milk chocolate or white chocolate.
