Classic salty tea biscuits

by | Mar 11, 2022 | Breads, buns & biscuits

These salty tea biscuits are often served at parties and weddings in Hungary. They are heavy and dense, as neither yeast nor baking powder can be found in the dough, which is loaded with a considerable amount of butter. The dough needs to be cool in order to prevent butter from melting, and instead of fridge it’s chilled in the freezer. I used the recipe of Street Kitchen.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
