Vanilla Crescents with Marmalade Filling – Cornulete Fragede

Posted on 01 February 2009 by Mădălina

- 250 g butter
- 200 ml milk
- 500 g powdered sugar
- 1/2 kg marmalade (I used rose hip)
- 1 tbsp vinegar
- 1 tbsp yeast
- 1 package of vanilla sugar
- flour – the recipe calls for as much flour as the dough will absorb – I’ll explain this later

2. In a separate glass, heat milk in a microwave until warm. Stir in yeast, and allow to sit for 4 minutes.
5. Knead the dough; you may need to add more flour so the dough is manageable and not ‘sticky’. Pay special care at this step; you need a well kneaded dough (hehe)
6. Once you have kneaded the dough; place in a bowl and cover it with cling wrap and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
7. Roll out the dough 1/4″ thick. You may find it easier to separate the dough if you separate it into about 4 sections.
8. Cut the dough into even squares
9. Place about a tsp of marmalade in the center
10. Roll it diagonally to get the crescent shape
11. Bake at 350′F until golden brown, about 12-15 minutes.
12. In a separate bowl, mix powdered sugar and vanilla sugar. As soon as the crescents are out of the oven, allow them to cool for a quick minute, and roll them in the sugar individually. Place them on a rack to cool.

    This sounds delicious! If you wanted to make it with nutella the recipe wouldn’t change besides the marmalade right? And I was curious about putting the yeast in the fridge for 30 minutes… wouldn’t you let it rise first?
