Serbian Galete

Me and all the Serbian kids i know pretty much grew up on these cookies. They are so good. They however, are not very "American" which means that they are not sweet or filled with any chocolate deliciousness BUT are amazing on their own. They are buttery, lemony, vanillay discs of heaven. To make them though, you must have a waffle iron. But trust me, go buy one, you have to make these. They are AMAZING! AND the recipe (which i am translating from a Serbian recipe) says they can last up to a month! and they just get better and better and better!


2 sticks of unsalted butter softened

2 turkish coffee cups of vegetable oil (im sorry if you dont know what these are but i dont know how else to translated it :-/

3 eggs

15 tbs of sugar

1 tbs of baking powder OR 1 Prasak za Pecivo (for my fellow serbs)

1 tsp of baking soda

2 packages of vanila sugar (vanilin secer) - This comes to about 2 TBS.

1 cup of milk

zest of 1 lemon

800 grams of all purpose flour


Beat together Butter and sugar until creamy. Add eggs and beat until incorporated.

After the eggs are incorporated add the remaining ingrediants except for the milk and flour.

Once all the other ingrediants are in begin adding the flour and milk in 3 additions starting with the flour and ending with the milk. Your dough will be nice and moist.

At this point, plug in your waffle maker and let it heat up well. Then take a heaping spoon full of dough and shape into a ball and drop into the waffle maker.

They will cook up very quickly - in about 40 seconds or so - so dont walk away from them. Let them sit on a cooling rack straight from the waffle maker and package them up when you are done. You may come out with several dozen depending on how big you make them. Send some to your friends and family. They will love them! enjoy :)


  1. Those look great! Think I will have to try them!

  2. They are amazing! And keep really really well. In fact, they just get better as the days go on! Let me know how they turn out!
    They are a great treat for the kiddies too, because they taste like cookies, but actually do not contain much sugar. ;) smart..
