recipe of real soesjes

february 8 2008

Here's the recipe of real soesjes.

Children love to make them.
These are the real ones, the ones my gram made.

The recipe is for about 20 to 25 soesjes.
When you need more, you have to start over again, with the recipe.
Otherwise it'll all go wrong.

It's a three step process.

step 1

You need:
- 3 large eggs
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup butter
- a pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup all purpose white flour
- wooden spoon
- pan
- cookie sheets

Preheat oven to 425°.

Mix water, salt and butter in a pan and bring to a boil.
Add the flour and stir rapidly with a wooden spoon until the dough forms a ball.
Remove from the heat.
Stir with wooden spoon and add one egg.
Stir untill it's creamy.
Then add the other eggs one by one, stir well before adding each next one.
Take two cookie sheets and grease and flour them.
make little balls of dough on the sheets.
Place one or both sheets in the centre of the oven.
Bake 9 minutes.
Lower the temperature to 350°.
bake for 7 minutes.
The burning smell is from the sheet. Don't worry unless the balls get black.
Now they're a bit brown and swolen.
Keep the oven closed, turn it off and leave them in the oven to cool down.

step 2

250 ml whipping cream, or a fake cream product.
You can also use something else you like. Creamcheese with little bits of bacon is favorite here too.
4 small teaspoons of white sugar

Whip the cream and the sugar.
Get the balls from the oven.
Cut them open.
Remove part of the content, so there's place for the cream.
Spoon the cream in. You can use a kitchenknife and push the filling in.

Step 3

Most of the time here step 3 consists of eating and starting anew. LOL!
But you can try to frost some.

You need:
- a little bit of milk or water
- 1 cup icing sugar

Drip drops of milk in the icing sugar untill you can smear it.
When it's too thin it runs from the little balls.

Too thin means: more icing sugar.

You can sprinkle chocolate chips on top or decorate them otherwise.

I like them best without frosting after they have been in the fridge for about 30minutes.
Children like them best, piled up on a plate with icing sugar over it.
Real ladies like them best on a nice little plate, with a napkin.
