Today I’m going to introduce a new feature: Grandma’s Classics.
Grandma does not experiment in the kitchen. No potions, no asian, no magic ingredients. No no… she is most fond of the traditional German recipes, which have been passed on for centuries and never fail to please.
The lady in fire engine red is Grandma.
The tiny croissants hold a lot of butter, the ham gives the right amount of saltiness.
Grandma loves to offer them especially as a complementary snack with champagne.
for the dough:
250g Quark (fromage frais/ curd)
1 ts baking powder
for the filling:
250g cooked ham (chopped)
250g smoked ham (chopped)
for the finish: 1 egg
Knead the dough quickly with your hands and let it repose in the fridge for half an hour.
Roll out the dough thinly with a rolling pin, cut it in triangles, fill them with ham and fold them into tiny croissants. Beat the egg and brush the croissants with it.
Bake them in the oven at 180° until they turn golden.
We prepared the original recipe but our drink of choice yesterday was a blue Margarita rather than champagne.
