Step by step: Recipe of the traditional quince and sweet potato seeds


The seeds are one of the most famous cookies in Argentina. The step by step to make them spectacular.

Quince or sweet potato seeds (there is nothing written about tastes) are one of the best-known cookies in Argentina  and one of the favorites of the youngest. Although the filling can vary, the recipe for homemade seeds is not complicated at all and can be achieved with just a few ingredients.

Ingredients (for 6 servings)

Put the finely chopped butter together with the sugar in a bowl, press well and add the yolks with the light medium. Next, mix well until creamy, add the lemon zest and the previously sifted flour to form a bun with your hands, trying to work the dough as little as possible.

With the bun, take small portions and form balls the size of a small walnut. Arrange them a little apart from each other on a previously buttered and floured plate. 

Then, with the thumb, a little pressure should be applied in the center of the ball so that a small hole is left that can be filled with a little of the sweet chosen by each seed. 

With the stuffed beans, the oven should be preheated to 190 ° and cooked for approximately 10 minutes. It is important that they are not very golden brown because they burn easily.

They can be eaten hot although the ideal is to let them warm before serving at the table.
