Directions

  1. Butter a small cake pan.
  2. To prepare Nougat: In a frying pan place 1/2 cup of sugar over medium heat and stir. Sugar will turn into liquid caramel. When syrup becomes dark brown, pour into cake pan and let harden.
  3. Crush nougat in a mortar or between waxed paper with a hammer into small pieces.
  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a medium bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Separate the egg and add the yolk and water. Blend thoroughly. Stir in 1/2 cup of sifted flour and the nougat. Mix well. Sift in the rest of the flour.
  5. Knead the dough lightly on a board. Roll the dough into a 1-inch in diameter log. Slice into 1/2-inch thick cookies. Place on greased cookie sheets 3 inches apart and press down with a fork.
  6. Bake 10 to 12 minutes.

Five stars. Give these cookies a try. You will be glad you did. I crushed the nougat in a plastic bag with a wooden mallet. My second batch of cookies, substituted 1 teaspoon of water with vanil...

My cookies did not turn out how I had expected at all. It could have been that in making the nougat, I waited a tad bit too long, which makes all the difference in the world! A tip to others: th...

The batter ended up really dry so I added a splash of milk, and then it was moldable into the roll. I had a little fun and added twice the nougat, and the second batch I made was 1 cup sugar, an...

Had a bad day and wanted cookies. These struck my fancy because they call for a cathartic smashing of nougat. Followed the recipe almost exactly (just added salt). Came out great; everyone lov...

These didn't have a lot of flavor, but were moist and sugary.
