Spicy Biscuits

(Acili Biskuvi)

Spicy Biscuits
2 cups flour
10 tbsp (1 stick (125 gr) + 2 tbsp) unsalted butter, room temperature
3-4 tbsp kasar or mozzarella cheese, grated
2 egg whites
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp salt

2 egg yolks
Kasar or Mozzarella cheese, grated
Nigella seeds (black sesame seeds)
Cayenne pepper

Place the flour in a large bowl and make a hole at the middle. Add the rest of the ingredients, knead. Don't knead too much! When the dough comes together, roll it 1.0 cm thick using a roller. Cut the dough with 3.5 cm wide cookie cutters (picture). Make about 35 biscuits.

Put parchment paper on the oven tray. Place the biscuits on it. First eggwash the tops, then sprinkle some Nigella seeds, grated cheese or cayenne pepper all over (picture).

Preheat the oven to 375 F (180 C). Place the oven tray on the middle rack. Bake for about between 20-25 minutes. You can serve Turkish Spicy Biscuits with afternoon tea or with soup.

35 biscuits.

Dear Binnur, you have original and deliciuos recipes. I have a problem: I cann't copy-paste your recipes to print out.It is too much work to write it down. Is the access denied for copyright purposes?

Hi Nilay,
No, the access is not denied.
You should be able to copy-paste or print them out as everybody else. I really don't know what is the problem you are facing:)
Take care,

About how long will these last in a container? I would like to make 3-4 days in advance for a party.
Excellent website! I have your book, too.

Hi Darryl,
Thank you:) You can make them in 3 days advance. But I would suggest you to serve them in 2 days advance which will keep them crispy:)

Hi Binnur,

Just wondering if it will still work using a larger cookie cutter. I just bought one with all different shapes but its probably twice the size. Will it affect cooking?
