Mama’s recipes: madig

Today, I’m going to share with you an armenian biscuit recipe: the madig!

Madigs are delicious crunchy biscuits coated with sesame seeds. It’s a quick and easy recipe and you don’t even have to use eggs for this dough. I’m warning you, they are addictive!

It is a great snack/dessert recipe in itself but I also love its versatility. Indeed, with this dough, you can also make chocolate/jam cookies as well as pie crusts. Here’s the recipe!

Ingredients

  • 500g flour
  • 100g sugar
  • 15g vanilla sugar
  • A pinch of salt
  • 11g baking powder
  • 125g butter
  • 60ml water
  • 110ml sunflower oil
  • Sesame seeds
  • Chocolate squares (for the cookies recipe)
  • Jam (for the cookies recipe)

–> Place all of the dry ingredients into a bowl (flour, sugars, salt and baking powder).

–> Add the butter and mix well with your hands. Then, rub in the mixture with your fingertips until it resembles the texture of sand.

–> Make a well in the center of the mixture and pour the wet ingredients into it (water and sunflower oil).

–> For the traditional madig recipe, roll out the dough with your fingers to form a long rope.

–> Cut out the dough diagonally into small diamond shapes.

–> Coat every piece with sesame seeds and place onto a baking tray.

–> Place in oven at 180°C (Th 4) for around 18 minutes.

–> For the cookies, roll out the dough and cut out circles using a cookie cutter or a glass.

–> Bake in the oven at 180°C (Th 4) for around 18 minutes.

–> Right out of the oven, place a piece of chocolate on the hot underside of the biscuit. Wait for a moment and cover it with another one. You can also wait for the biscuits to cool before spreading the jam of your choice on them.

Enjoy!
