Childhood biscuits salami

This recipe is something that my grandmother used to make for me and my sister – it was a treat that we always enjoyed. Twenty something years later (let’s make it thirty something, if we go down on the honesty path) I still enjoy it and although nowadays I think about calories, I cannot refuse myself the tenth slice :). Nor the twentieth…

It is called salami because the mixture is shaped as a salami, and after a few hours in the refrigerator it can be sliced and served as cookies. It is a “no fuss” sort of cookie – just the kind I like, because the one thing I never seem to have enough is time.

One thought – never tried it, but I am thinking that it might work: shape the mixture as small balls instead of a “salami” and then roll them through coconut flakes. Hmmm….

Enjoy it with a smile! 🙂


How to

    YIELD: 25

Biscuits salami

  • 650 g simple biscuits
  • 70 g powder sugar
  • 200 g raisins (soaked for 30 minutes in warm water)
  • 140 g butter (melted)
  • 100 g chocolate (70% cacao)
  • 100 g walnuts (coarsely chopped)
  • 50 g coconut flakes
  • 50 g cacao
  • 300 ml milk
  • 1 ts vanilla extract


    Place the biscuits in a large bowl. Crumble them by hand, or if you need some frustration therapy, place them in a plastic bag, place a towel on top of the bag, take a heavy pan and hit them (not as hard as you can – use moderation 🙂 ).
    Add the rest of the ingredients (strain the raisins before adding them).
    Mix everything together. Add 1-2 spoons of milk if the mixture is not coming together.
    The result should be similar to a dough that is easy to shape.
    For shaping, take a plastic wrap rectangle, place some of the mixture in the centre and shape it with your hands as a salami.
    Wrap it up and place it in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or better overnight.
    Slice it and enjoy it.
