Sound the trumpets and bang the drums! Make way for the great Jafar! May all bow down before him, or they will end up in chains! Speaking of which, the great Jafar is especially fond of these delicious little cookies.
- Yield: 20 rings
- Preparation Time: 15 Minutes
- Cooking Time: 20 Minutes
- 11½ oz flour, sifted
- ¼ oz baking powder
- 9 oz honey
- 2 egg whites
- 2¼ oz butter, melted
- 1 oz ground hazelnuts
How to Make It
- Send your most faithful servant to light the oven at 400°F.
- In a bowl scrubbed clean of all traces of poison (you can never be too careful!), mix the sifted flour and baking powder with the honey.
- Seize a whisk and beat the egg whites savagely in another bowl (make sure it is clean, dry, and grease-free). When firm peaks form, add the butter, melted under the midday sun, and mix in gently.
- Pour the beaten egg whites onto the flour-honey mixture and knead together until the dough is smooth and puts up no more resistance (if it sticks a little, throw in a little flour; if it is too thick, have it drink a little water).
- Take a walnut-sized piece of dough, flatten it with your hand, and make a hole in the middle with the handle of a wooden spoon. Turn the handle to enlarge the hole. Repeat until you run out of dough.
- Place the cookies on a sheet of parchment paper and scatter with the hazelnuts. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown.
- Once they are cold, thread them onto a cord to wear over your shoulder, so they are easy to reach when you are feeling peckish, without having to get down from your horse or your flying carpet.
