How to Make Keeflees

Step-by-Step

  • 1350 degrees
  • 2NUT FILLING.........
    Boil water and sugar, till ball forms in water or 225 degrees. Add Karo and nuts. Cook about 5 minutes. Sit aside to cool.
  • 3Cookie dough....
    Mix together till crumbly, flour and butter, use your hands.
  • 4Add whipping cream, eggs, baking powder, sugar, vanilla and salt. Mix till it picks up itself. (smooth as a baby's bottom).
  • 5Roll out thin and cut into 3 inch squares. Put nut filling on the dough, not to much or it will make its way out of the cookie. Now roll the dough like a crescent roll. Then take the cookie and fold the ends in toward each other, it'll look like a shrimp.
  • 6Place on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. about an inch apart.(this will save you time if the filling comes out and bakes on sheet)
    Brush with egg white before putting in oven.
  • 7Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
  • 8Remove from oven and roll in powder sugar. Store in plastic bag sealed.
