Brownie is actually a cake type, but I used it for the meaning “softer”. These cookies are not hard to bite, but soft. They have a softness like Turkish delight but are not chewy. We describe it as “lokum gibi” which means “like a Turkish delight”. My husband liked it though he does not like cookies and I guees other cookie-haters like my husband will like these soft cookies too
An oven tray
A kneading bowl
A stirring spoon
First prepare the syrup. Add the granulated sugar and water into the pot and boil while stirring. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 180 °C (356 °F).
Pour the lemon juice after 5 minutes and continue to boil for 10 more minutes. Then set aside.
Beat the egg, granulated sugar and powder sugar mix, olive oil, butter and cocoa powder in the kneading bowl.
Add the flour little by little and then add the vanilla extract and baking powder and knead until you get a medium soft dough.
Take walnut sized pieces from the dough and roll them on your palm.
Put these rolled dough onto the tray with greased paper on it.
Bake in the oven until their tops are cracked.
After that, set aside for 3 minutes and takem them by threes or fours into the cold syrup and take out immediately.
You may garnish with some nuts or cocoa pieces.
Set aside for a few hours and then serve. You may store them in fridge if you wish.
