Cooking lean biscuits:

Step 1: prepare the dough.

First, prepare the lean dough. To do this, sift the right amount of flour with a sieve into a convenient plate or bowl. This will get rid of flour lumps and other inclusions, as well as saturate the ingredient with oxygen and make the dough more airy and soft. After that, add baking powder and salt to the bowl to taste. We mix the components with each other using a tablespoon or whisk. Next, bring to the boil the required volume of water and immediately after that, add vegetable oil. Then pour the resulting liquid into a deep plate and gradually pour the flour mixture. Now we begin to knead the dough directly in the container until smooth. The dough should be smooth and dense enough. After we knead the dough, leave it to stand for 40-60 minutes.

Step 2: prepare the nuts.

We put the pan on the burner and turn on the temperature of the stove to an average level. Rinse almonds under running water and peel if possible. Then put it on a preheated pan and fry until golden brown with constant stirring with a kitchen spatula. Pour the finished nuts into a plate.

Step 3: prepare the plums.

We place the plums in a colander and carefully rinse under running water from dust and other contaminants. Then we lay them on a kitchen towel and wipe off excess moisture. After that, using a knife, cut into slices with a knife up to 5 millimeters thick or into small pieces of arbitrary shape up to 2 centimeters in size. Shredded component is transferred to a plate.

Step 4: chop nuts with flour and sugar.

Pour peeled and roasted almonds, 5 tablespoons of sugar and 2 tablespoons of flour into a blender bowl. Turn on the electric appliance and grind nuts to medium particles of about 5 millimeters. Then we take out the cutting tool and mix the contents with a tablespoon.

Step 5: make a cake.

After 40-60 minutes, sprinkle a flat surface with sifted flour and spread the dough. Knead it again until smooth, during which time it should become more pliable and elastic. Then we wipe the rolling pin with flour and begin to roll out the dough into a round-shaped layer, no thicker 1 centimeter. Next, cover the baking tray with baking paper or grease with vegetable oil, after which we carefully lay the test layer on it. Then sprinkle with a nut mixture almost the entire surface of the dough, departing from the edges for about 2 - 3 centimeters. And put slices of plums in the very center. Now we proceed to the most crucial stage, we begin to bend the edges. They should partially capture our filling and bend beautifully, forming folds. After we have formed the pie, turn on the oven on 190 degrees Celsius.

Step 6: bake a lean biscuit.

In a preheated oven, set the pan on the middle shelf and bake for 40 minutes until ready. Lean biscuit should be covered with a delicious appetizer crust, and the plums should be baked in their own juice. With the passage of the necessary time, we take out the baking sheet from the oven and separate the fragrant pastries on a beautiful plate with a metal spatula.

Step 7: serve the lean biscuit.

The lean biscuit is served at room temperature with tea or your favorite compote. For children, you can warm milk, although it can not be consumed in fasting, but for your kids you can make an exception. Your dessert table is ready. Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- - Walnut skin from almonds can be easily removed in the following way. Transfer the washed nuts to a deep plate and pour them with boiling water. Leave the almonds in this state for 5 minutes and then drain the hot water. Now you can peel a nut skin.

- - If desired, a small amount of sugar can be added to the dough.
