Cooking method

  • The first mention of these adorable bagels, the hallmark of the German-speaking canton of Bern, was found in Swiss cookbooks in 1930, although there is speculation that the recipe has been known since the late 19th century. Different bakeries have their own zest - somewhere they add honey to the filling, somewhere - zest, but, nevertheless, this dessert, baked mainly in autumn and spring, enjoys constant success, and mostly among older visitors to pastry shops, who are considered the main ones. the advantages of the dessert, in addition to the great taste, the absence of crumbs and sticky fingers. It is better to eat the "legs" fresh, although they are perfectly stored for two to three days.
  • Combine flour, salt and sugar. Dissolve the yeast in warm milk, melt the butter, pour into the flour and knead the dough, which, after covering, set aside for two hours. For the filling, grind the nuts into nut flour, add powder, cinnamon and pour, stirring, water until the mixture reaches the consistency of a thick dough.
  • Cut portions from the risen and doubled dough, roll it out to a thickness of ~ 2 mm and cut out rectangles ~ 7 x 18 cm in size.Place the nut filling on each rectangle along the long axis:

Thanks for the original recipe
Larissa, we haven't eaten the legs yet. Now we will.
Gal, so I had a fear - and whether they were chopped off as punishment drunk virgins ?
What? The virgins got drunk, lay in the doorway, they chopped off their legs ...
Irina Dolars
Larissa! Great! Surprised!
It seemed to me that a sausage was sticking out of a bagel
I read the composition, I see "hazelnut"

We already had ears (on the forum) ... We had sponges ... If these are legs, will there soon be shoes?
Larissa. As always original.
The recipe is very interesting, and the main thing is the name. Yes, in the light of the above comparisons, it's just awful.
Thanks, girls ! Nice how!

Claass! Great, very interesting recipe!
Larissa, are the legs delicious? Is the dough closer to sandy?
Ira, what do you think? I would post the recipe, adding - you don't bake this, is it tasteless? And I would not call the dough shortbread, there is yeast right there.
