David Konio’s Snow White cookies


255 g of dark chocolate
75 g of butter
15 g chocolate liqueur (optional)
100 g eggs (2 M eggs)
85 g of sugar
140 g sifted flour
40 g of almond powder
8 g sifted cocoa powder
3 g of baking powder
For rolling: sugar and powdered sugar


Beat eggs and sugar in the bowl of the mixer until you get a light and fluffy whipped cream.

At the same time, melt the chocolate and butter in the microwave and mix well.

Add the liqueur to the melted chocolate. Gradually add the chocolate mixture to the mixer bowl.

Add the dry ingredients: flour, almond powder, cocoa, baking powder, and mix until you get a uniform dough (it’s okay if the dough is a little runny, it will stabilize after cooling).

Transfer the dough to the freezer for an hour. Heat the oven to 170 degrees.

Divide the dough into pieces weighing 40 grams. Roll each piece of dough into a ball, roll it in a small bowl of sugar and immediately transfer to a small bowl of powdered sugar. Place the cookie on a tray with baking paper.

Bake for 10 minutes at 175 degrees (the cookies remain fudgy and soft in the center, and firm all around).

After the cookies cool down a little, transfer to a closed box and keep at room temperature for up to 7 days.

David Konio (33)

David is a person that cannot be described in words. Simple, down to earth, humble and a perfect father and partner. David is an identical twin. It was a big surprise when he and Sharon found out they were expecting identical twin girls. David is an amazing uncle to all his nephews and nieces. As someone who himself has a child's soul, he always knows how to connect with children on an unimaginable level. David and Sharon established their home in Nir Oz out of love for the kibbutz, simplicity, fields and believed that this was their little piece of paradise where the girls could grow up in the most ideal way.

On the Black Shabbat, David was kidnapped along with Sharon, their 3-year-old daughters Emma and Yuli, his sister-in-law Daniel and her daughter Amelia, after hours of fighting with the terrorists on the door of the MMD and after their house was burned to the ground. They all returned except for David. Yuli and Emma need their father, Sharon needs her other half.
