The recipe is so simple and quick that every housewife will like it. The total cooking time (including baking) will be no more than half an hour.
Such cookies in our family were very often prepared in the 90s, when there were no excesses, but we really wanted something tasty.
So, the remaining brine must be filtered into a measuring cup.
A liter can of pickled cucumbers usually leaves about 200-250 ml of brine. In this case 250 ml.
Then measure out the rest of the ingredients:
- – 400 grams of flour;
- – 80 grams of sugar;
- – 7 grams of soda;
- – 100 grams of vegetable oil;
- – vanillin.
When all ingredients (flour, vegetable oil, soda, sugar, vanillin and brine) have been measured,
you can start cooking.
Additional accessories you will need:
- – rolling pin for dough;
- – mixer with dough attachments;
- – cookie cutters.
