The late Ran Gvili’s Kinder rolls

The ingredients for the dough

500 grams (3 cups) flour
1/4 cup sugar or powdered sugar
200 grams (1 cup) of butter, cut into cubes
1/4 cup of oil
1/2 cup orange juice or milk
1 bag (10 grams/2.5 tsp) of baking powder
4 tablespoons of cocoa for the brown dough

For filling and decoration:

A jar of white chocolate spread
4 packs of chocolate fingers (Kinder or Elite)
Powdered sugar for decorating the cookies

Preparation method

– Put all the dough ingredients in a mixer bowl and mix. Wrap in plastic wrap and put in the fridge, chill the dough for about two hours. You can shorten the time a little and put it in the freezer for 30 to 50 minutes. Just touch the dough and you will see that it has a texture like stable playdough.

– Place half of the dough on floured baking paper, flour the top as well and roll into a thin rectangle. The width of the rectangle should be 3 times the length of the chocolate fingers. Height doesn’t matter. The 2 sides near the fingers are the same width as the width of the fingers.

– Spread chocolate spread generously, in an even layer, and place the chocolate fingers on top in a row upwards. Place chocolate fingers from the very edge of the bottom to the top edge.

 – Place the dough on the right over the chocolate fingers. Then place the dough on the left over the dough from the right, like an envelope

– Transfer the roulade, together with the baking paper, to a smooth surface like a cutting board, and carefully transfer to the freezer for an hour or until you want to bake.

– Heat the oven to 180 degrees C (356 F) using top and bottom heat.

– Bake for 22 minutes or until the dough is slightly golden on the sides. It should not be completely golden but slightly golden.

– Cool completely. Be careful in the first few minutes as the dough is very soft and it stabilizes as it cools. After it is no longer hot, dust with powdered sugar and cut into 1 cm wide cookies.

Ran Gvili Z"L (24)

The late Major General Ran Gvili, a fighter in the Negev Special Patrol unit of the police, was a loving person who helped a lot of people and always acted quietly, humbly and under the radar. What characterized Ran most of all was his genuine interest in others. Ran was a laser-focused listener and always the first to help and assist. Ran loved motorcycles, meeting with friends, spending time with his sister and brother, and drinking arak lemonade.

On October 7, Ran was on sick leave and was waiting for shoulder surgery. He could have stayed home due to his medical condition, but Ran was made from the stuff of warriors, a special breed of people who put others before themselves. As soon as he heard about what happened, he took his personal weapon and went out to fight. Ran was kidnapped after he was killed in a battle in Kibbutz Alumim. He was supposed to celebrate his 25th birthday on Sunday October 8th.
