Shahrouk Sisters’ Lebanese Jam Crescents
Ingredients
2 cups plain flour(sifted)
2 cups self-raising flour(sifted)
1×300ml sour cream
1×block unsalted butter at room temperature
Jam of your choice (personal preference)
Icing sugar for dusting (preferably straight after removing from the oven so it can melt and bind)
Follow these steps
Step 1

Add flour, butter and sour cream to a food processor and mix until dough is formed like a ball

Remove dough from food processor and divide into 8 even balls

(Note – an easy way is to flatten the ball of dough slightly and cut like a pizza to ensure 8 even-sized pieces

Roll out each dough ball like a pizza base and use a pizza cutter or knife to cut into 8 triangle pieces

Step 2

Put a spoon of jam at the wider end of each triangle and roll pressing firmly on the edges so that the jam doesn’t seep out during the cooking process

Bake for approximately 15 minutes

Step 3

Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack.  Dust immediately and generously with icing sugar

Store in an airtight container for approximately 3 weeks
