“Peach” Cookies {Pesche Con Crema / Персики}

Dulce de Leche stuffed Peach Cookies | LetTheBakignBeginBlog.com | @LetthebakingbgnThe ‘peach’ cookies I am about to share with you are a very traditional treat at Slavic weddings and celebrations, but they usually taste very bland and disappointing.
I posted a recipe for peach cookies in the past, but now I have made some revisions and decided to post the recipe again with updated pictures.

Dulce de Leche stuffed Peach Cookies | LetTheBakignBeginBlog.com | @LetthebakingbgnThe revisions included, using different filling and different sugar to coat the outside. Also, I changed the way you store them, which made them go from soggy all throughout, to crunchy (almost) on the outside, and very soft and moist on the inside.I loved using the sprinkling sugar to coat these, because it made them look more realistic and gave them more dimension.Dulce de Leche stuffed Peach Cookies | LetTheBakignBeginBlog.com | @Letthebakingbgn
The way I realized that these should not sit in a closed container, is by accidentally leaving one on the kitchen counter for a couple of hours and then when biting into it, discovering the outside to be perfectly dry and crunchy, while the inside was moist and delicious. I love happy accidents!

 

‘Peach’ Cookies

Ingredients

Cookies

  • 4 eggs
  • 250 grams vegetable/corn oil
  • 250 grams sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla sugar or 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tbsp flour
  • Later add:
  • 500 grams flour (approximately 4 cups)

Filling

  • 1 can cooked Dulce de Leche / sweetened condensed milk, room temperature
  • 2 sticks butter, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Decorating

  • 1 cup sprinkling sugar
  • Red, Orange or Peach Food Coloring
  • Mint Leaves (hearts)

Instructions

Cookies

  1. Mix together, eggs, sugar and vanilla sugar/vanilla extract until combined.
  2. Add oil, stir to combine. Add flour & the baking powder. Mix thoroughly to combine. Let sit for 1 hour.
  3. Meanwhile, line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  4. After 1 hour, add 500 grams flour (about 4 cups) into the runny dough we prepared earlier and mix thoroughly.
  5. Take about a tablespoon of dough, roll it into a ball and set onto parchment paper, about 1-2 inches apart. You can oil or water the hands to help with the dough sticking.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes in a pre-heated oven, at 350F. Cookies should remain white.
  7. Allow to cool on a cooling rack. Bake the rest of the cookies in the same manner.
  8. With a melon baller, remove the center of each cookie, to make room for the filling.

Filling

  1. With a mixer fitted with a whip attachment, whip the butter until white and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Make sure to scrape the bottom of the bowl throughout the process.
  2. Add the condensed milk & vanilla extract and whip again, until well combined, about 1 minute.
  3. Fill a ziplock bag with the filling & snip the end.

Assembly & Decorating

  1. Fill each half of the cookies with the filling, slightly overfilling, to allow for the two halves to stick together.
  2. Put sprinkling sugar into a bowl.
  3. Fill 2 bowls or cups with 1 cup of water each. Add red food coloring to one cup, and yellow/peach/orange food coloring to the other. Stir, to make sure the food coloring dissolves.
  4. Quickly dip each cookie, into the yellow ‘cup’ and then only half of the cookie into the red cup, to make them resemble a peach.
  5. Roll in the sprinkling sugar. Place on the tray.
  6. Allow to sit at room temperature for a couple of hours. This will allow for the moisture to redistribute evenly throughout the cookie, while allowing the outside to dry. Do not leave in a closed container, or the cookies will become soggy.
  7. Right before you serve the cookies, insert the hearts of mint, to make them look like real leaves from peach trees.

      • Yes, I did use natural coloring (beets and carrots) which worked perfectly! I didn’t have time to go to the store to buy the actual food coloring, LOL.

        • I really like that idea, I might experiment with it next time. Did it give the cookies any flavor at all?
          as far as for me, I am stocked on things some people don’t even know exist lol, I think I might have a slight hoarding obsession when it comes to cooking/baking/kitchen supplies lol

      Hi. I’m thinking of making these but had a question on the measurements since you list them in grams. How much oil and sugar in cups? I tried to look it up and it seems like 250 is about 1 and 1/4 cup of dry ingredients and about 1 cup of fluid (oil). Does that sound right? I guess what’s throwing me off is that you have 500 grams of flour listed and in parenthesis it says about 4 cups, but based on the conversion mentioned previously that would be 2 and 1/2 cups ? So I’m confused. can u help a girl out 😉 tx

        Actually I think I answered my question! I guess flour is lighter than sugar and 1 cup is approx 120 grams. So that makes sense now. So 4 cups flour, about 1 1/4 cup sugar and actually like 3/4 cups oil. Hopefully this helps someone else 🙂

    I was wondering what degrees you put them on? I put mine on 350 farenheit.

    Any chance you could get these to taste peachy? Like with peach schnaps maybe?

    • I guess you could soak the outside with some diluted peach liquor and add peach essense to a whip cream and creamcheese frosting…. But that’s just an idea, I haven’t done it 🙂

    These look delicious!!
    Im just wondering what is sprinkling sugar? is it regular sugar? thanks for reply in advance

    · Reply
    • Hi Tanya,
      thank you! Sprinkling sure is usually larger granules than regular sugar and sometimes it comes in different colors. It’s what you would sprinkle on cupcakes or sugar cookies. At the bottom of the post you will see an amazon link to the kind of sanding/sprinkling sugar I used 🙂

    Thank you for the recipe. I made them a few days ago they taste amazing but for some reason even when I used teaspoon to roll balls when they baked they became huge( I don’t know maybe I didn’t had enough flour? And also when I dipped them into coloring they got very soggy I didn’t close the container even after a few days they still were soggy! Is there any advice you can give me how to improve them?

    Can you freeze the peach cookies or how long will they keep in the refrigerator?
