Speculaas butter cookies / Butter kukis dengan bumbu spikoek

Selam everybody..... Merhaba from Turkey..

Celebrating Ramadhan Bayram/ Eid al-Fitr is always being a happiest moment in my life...after do our Fasting (sawm) during Ramadhan.The holiday celebrates the conclusion of the 29 or 30 days of dawn-to-sunset fasting during the entire month of Ramadan. The day of Eid, therefore, falls on the first day of the month of Shawwal

In Turkey, Eid al-Fitr celebrated with baklava and candy or turkish delight. When you visit your friend or relatives during Eid al-fitri (Ramazan Bayram) they will serve you with that traditional sweets pastry.

But in Indonesian tradition, eid al-fitr identically with cookies, ketupat with many other traditional meals. Too bad I can not have ketupat here.. 😔

But even far away from my homeland I want to have my own Indonesian tradition to celebrate Eid al Fitr here... Beside Baklava (mostly I buy from patisserie here) I usually make some cookies to have Indonesian Eid al fitr's atmosphere in our house... And of course for my Indonesian fellows who visit our house they will get Indonesian aroma...

How to:
  1. In a mixing bowl, mix butter+margarine, egg yolk, condensed milk and powdered sugar with wooden spoon to combine well.
  2. Mix in speculaas, flour and milk powder. Mix them just until crumble into a ball. Then start to knead LIGHTLY (don't over knead otherwise you will melt butter+margarine with your warm hand). Wrap dough in plastic film and rest it for about 1 hour in fridge.
  3. Pre-heat oven to 155~160 deg C. With a rolling pin, flatten the dough into approximately 1 cm thick-- use plastic sheet/ baking paper to avoid sticking on your rolling pin/ working table -- then cut with cookie cutter as your liking.
  4. Bake for about 25 minute or until golden brown and crunchy. Let them cool completely before sprinkle/ coat them with powdered sugar+ speculaas mixture.
Arrange and keep cookies in airtight jar.

Today is last day of Ramadhan. There are always such a sad and happy feeling come at same time in this last day.

Sad that we'll gonna leave the most blessed month, when God forgives our sins and answer our du'a (pray).. when our deeds doubled in reward... Afraid that we won't be able to meet next Ramadhan....

Happy because we can past trough this fasting month and we'll face our happy day and celebrate it tomorrow...
