How to Make Keeflees

Step-by-Step

  1. 350 degrees
  2. NUT 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.
  3. Cookie dough....
    Mix together till crumbly, flour and butter, use your hands.
  4. Add whipping cream, eggs, baking powder, sugar, vanilla and salt. Mix till it picks up itself. (smooth as a baby's bottom).
  5. Roll 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.
  6. Place 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.
  7. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
  8. Remove from oven and roll in powder sugar. Store in plastic bag sealed.
