How to Make Maple Leaf Homemade Cookies
Mix finely chopped beets, as well as cottage cheese and sugar in a blender. If there is no blender, then boil the beets, cut them into small cubes and turn them into mashed potatoes, and then mix the mashed potatoes with cottage cheese and knead everything thoroughly with a fork. Add honey, egg, cinnamon, soda (already slaked with vinegar) to the prepared mixture, add flour at the end. We prepare in advance a sheet of paper on which a drawing of the future cookie should be applied. In our case, it will be a leaf with a drawn maple leaf. We spread the dough on the prepared surface (sprinkled with flour). Roll it out and check that it does not stick to the knife. It is very important. If the dough sticks, add more flour, knead and roll out again. The thickness of the obtained sheet should be within 7 - 8 mm. Now we begin to cut the cookies along the contour. We do it carefully and without haste. We send the finished maple leaves to the oven for 20 minutes. We bake them at a temperature of 200 degrees.
