Strawberry Almond Foldovers is an interesting recipe, just as its name suggests, in that the dough of these foldovers is salty while the filling is sweet, hence resulting in a perfect combination of sweet and salty. The dough is also quite different than the others that I have tried since it has cream cheese in it. When baked, the cream cheese gives the foldovers a unique smell, which reminds one of bakery items.

This recipe serves as a perfect compliment with a cup of tea or coffee and can be baked and stored in airtight containers. Also, for people with diabetes, this can be a good recipe as the dough of these foldovers is salty and the strawberry jam filling can be replaced with sugar-free jams that are easily available in markets.

Try out this one and I guarantee you that you will give it a permanent place in your list of hi-tea items. Oh and one last thing, I have adapted this recipe from Shireen Anwar's program Masala Mornings. Enjoy!

Directions

  1. * In a mixing bowl, add butter, cream cheese, flour & essence and beat on low speed (for 2-3 minutes) till the dough resembles bread crumbs; do not over-beat.
  2. * Mix with hands till the dough is smooth; if it is too soft, add little flour.
  3. * Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  4. * Lightly flour a clean surface and roll the dough about 1/4 inch thick.
  5. * Cut rounds with a cookie cutter.
  6. * Put approx. 1 tsp jam in the center and fold to form a semi-circle.
  7. * Brush with egg white on top, put almond flakes and sprinkle with granulated sugar.
  8. * Bake at 190C for 15 minutes or till golden brown.
  9. Tips:
  10. * If the dough is too soft to roll, add flour and roll again.
  11. * Do not fill too much jam in the center; otherwise it may leak out during baking.
  12. * Mash the jam if has fruit chunks in it.
  13. * Different jam flavors can be used for variation.
  14. * Colored sugar can be used for decoration.
