Buttery snacks

Makes 35-40


I used to bake these snacks pretty often (Marcel was a big fan). Then, I stopped. On New Year’s Eve, I baked them again. Several weeks later, I baked them again.

They’re lovely!

We will use this recipe for the dough. Consequently, you’ll need—


250g flour (+100g flour depending on the type of flour used)

10g fresh yeast or 5g dry yeast

250 ml water

some sugar

some salt


+1 l water & 2 tbsp of baking soda

+15g butter & salt


We will make the dough based on the above recipe. After it rises, cut the dough into 4 equal pieces. Shape each piece of dough into a cylinder. Cut each cylinder into 8-10 pieces, 2-3 cm in width.

Meanwhile, pour the water into a deep pan, on low heat, and let the sodium bicarbonate dissolve. When the water starts boiling, take the small pieces of dough (3-4 at a time) and put them into the water. Turn them on the opposite side after they rise (for no more than 30 seconds on each side).

Then, place them in a large baking pan, lined with baking parchment. Continue with the remaining pieces of dough. When you’re done, sprinkle some salt on the small pieces of dough and leave them in the preheated oven, at 250C, for 10-12 minutes.

While they’re baking, melt the butter. After removing the baking pan from the oven, butter each snack using a pastry brush.

Let them cool and... start eating them. You won’t be able to stop anyway!
