Joy Of Spanish Cooking

Melindros (served with Hot Chocolate)

Melindros are very popular in Spain, they are similar to a cookie but with a cake-like texture. The tradition is to dip the melindro into hot chocolate. In Spain, the texture of hot chocolate is much thicker, more like a pudding and its spooned, not sipped.

The recipe for these melindros is very easy. By themselves, they’re good, but they are much better when you dip them in hot chocolate.

Ingredients: 

  • 3 egg yolks
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • Confectioner sugar

Preheat the oven to 350F.

In a bowl, whip the egg whites until stiff. In another bowl, beat the egg yolks and 1/3 cup sugar vigorously with a whisk until creamy. Sift the flour and baking powder  into the sugar mixture. Stir until it’s incorporated. Gently, add the egg whites and fold them until fully incorporated.

Using a piping bag, pipe the mixture approximately 4 1/2-inches in length on to the baking sheet. Dust them with confectioner sugar. Bake 6 to 8 minutes, or until just firm on the outside and soft in the center and golden brown.

Enjoy with a hot cup of hot chocolate.

Bon profit!
