This is from Brazil and its called "Casadinhos" (diminutive for married in portuguese). They are two cookies(about two in. diameter) put together with Marmelade, honey, jam, Boston cream, fudge, something sweet. I have two recipes, but never tried them. You can also make a white cake, cut it in squares or circles, and put two pieces together with the filling you like. Golden part of the cake should be on the outer side. When you have a marriage, you make the casadinhos, then roll them in caster (confectioner) sugar and wrap* each one of them nicely, like wedding favors. Then they are called "Bem Casados" (nicely, well married in portuguese), a wish for a sweet life together. You can distribute them to the guests as they live the reception, after the dessert or cake is served, with the wedding favors... * They are usually wrapped in celophane , and then cr?pe paper, but you can do it any way you like. You can add vanilla sugar or cinamon to the sugar. Mix all ingredients but the filling, adding the baking powder last. Open the dough with the rolling pin and cut it with cookie cutter (the traditional shape is a circle) Bake the cookies in a greased and floured cookie sheet. After they are baked, put the cookies together, two at a time, with the filling. Flat (bottom) side of the cookie inside. Then roll them in sugar. Posted to EAT-L Digest by Daniela Sznifer
