COCONUT COOKIE ROLL - KÓKUSZOS KEKSZTEKERCS
4 cups plain cookie crumbs [such as Nilla]
1/4 cup soft unsalted butter
1/4 cup cocoa
1/4 cup light [10%] cream
1 egg, lightly whisked to combine
1/2 cup soft unsalted butter
1/4 cup soft salted butter
1-1/2 cups icing sugar
1 Tbsp pure vanilla extract
1 cup medium coconuts
• Grind the cookies in the food processor. Make sure there are no chunks left in the cookie crumbs.
Making the cookie dough is done by hand. If you are concerned about depositing hand cells into your food, put on a pair of plastic gloves. [The same ones delis use for food preparation. Not the heavy rubber gloves you use scrubbing pots.]
• Add the butter and rub it into the cookie crumbs.
• Add the cocoa and combine with the cookie crumbs.
• Add the light cream and the egg.
• Disperse the cream and the egg throughout and kneed the dough until it comes together.
• Lay a 15X12 inch parchment paper on the table.
• Roll the dough out evenly until it slightly extends beyond the paper edge.
• When the dough sticks to the rolling pin, sprinkle it with icing sugar.
• Trim the edges with a sharp knife and discard what is not needed.
• Next, beat the butters with the icing sugar and the vanilla for 4-5 minutes until frothy.
• Add the coconut and beat to combine.
• With a large cake cream spreader spread the cream all over the cookie dough.
• From one of the long ends start to roll up the dough fairly tightly, being mindful not to roll up the parchment along with the dough. It’s a bit tricky and the dough will crack here and there but persevere. Once you rolled it a few times, you can use the parchment to roll it, just make it sure it remains a tight roll.
• Wrap it up in the same parchment and let the roll chill for a few hours before slicing.
• Slice it chilled, but serve it at room temperature.
