Curbia Cookies

Yael Leibushor Z"L

Yael loved the desert very much and before her military service she did a year of service in the Nature Protection Society in Mitzpe Ramon.

She was loved by everyone with her open heart, maturity, egoless conduct and genuine kindness.

Yael loved to embroider and in the last year, she was embroidering belts for her friends.

If you see a soldier with a belt with a butterfly or flowers on, you will know that they are Yael’s friend.

On her grave will be written – Loved people, breathed the desert, weaved friendships – loved by us all.

Yael was murdered on Black Shabbat, 7.10.23, in a battle at the Nachal Oz outpost.

On Yael’s penultimate Shabbat, she brought these cookies to her base. Her friends loved them so much they asked for the recipe – and now everyone will be able to know and taste the cookies she loved.

2.5 cups self-raising flour

200g butter

2 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons vanilla sugar

2 egg yolks

50g crushed almonds

Powdered sugar for serving


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Put all the ingredients in a bowl, mix with a fork until you get crumbs. Continue kneading with your hands to obtain a dough (don’t knead more than you need to so as not to damage the crispiness of the dough).

Make small circles with a diameter of approx 1.5cm. Place on a lined baking tray and bake for about 20 minutes or until golden.

Take out and leave to cool. Once cooled sprinkle powdered sugar generously.
