French Cookies (Belgi Galettes) Recipe
- 2 pounds dark brown sugar
- 1 pound butter
- 7 eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 6 ½ cups all-purpose flour
step 1: In a large bowl, stir together the brown sugar and butter until smooth and creamy; then add eggs and vanilla, and beat well. Gradually stir in flour. Set bowl over a hot water bath, and stir to blend ingredients. Cover, and refrigerate overnight.
step 2: Preheat the galette iron.
step 3: Shape dough into 1 inch balls, and place in the galette iron. Close the iron, and cook the cookies. This should take about 30 seconds in an electric galette iron, or 2 to 4 minutes in a handheld iron over a medium flame. Carefully remove cookies and cool on wire racks.
