Here’s a recipe right before Christmas, if you’ve not already baked everything. My dear Cristina gave it to me – and I thank her!

I only adapted it a bit; I can say that it was successful. I’ll also prepare it for Christmas Eve.


This is what you’ll need J for 28-30 sărăţele (or a large baking pan)—

125g sour cream

75g (melted and cooled) butter

6g salt

4g dry yeast

220g flour


+ 1 egg

+ shredded cheese

+ caraway seeds


How to make them?

Mix the sour cream, the butter, and the salt; then, add the dry yeast and the flour, being careful not to deactivate the yeast by placing it into contact with the salt.

Knead until you get a compact dough. Cover it and let it sit for one hour. It won’t rise much, but it will get more tender.

The saratele dough

Split the dough into four equal pieces to make your job easier. Using a cutting roll, cut the sărăţele and place them into a large baking pan, on baking parchment.

Cut the saratele

After brushing the egg onto the sărăţele, you can leave them as such (plain) or sprinkle shredded cheese and/or caraway seeds onto them.


How to bake them?

Place the baking pan for 10-13 minutes in the preheated oven at 200C, depending on how crunchy you want them to turn out. I like them fluffier.


They won’t last long, but they will bring smiles along!

Merry Christmas, with joy! ♥
