morokoshi

「もろこし(諸越)」とは、小豆や木の実などの粉を少量の砂糖と混ぜたものを型に押入れ固め、焼き目をつけた素朴なお菓子です。

Morokoshi” is a simple Japanese “cookie” made of a little bit of sugar with red bean flour (or nut flours).  The mixture is then shaped into desired shapes with molding tools, and lightly toasted.

「山寺もろこし」は、小豆粉と砂糖をこね、小判型の木型にはめて炭火で半日乾燥させてから表面を香ばしく焦がします。全て手造りのため一日千個程しか造れないとききます。立石寺の茶席でも使われるそうです。

Yamadera morokoshi” is made with red bean flour and sugar.  A “coin”-shaped wooden mold is filled with the mixture, which is dried for half a day over a charcoal fire.  It is then toasted to enhance the fragrance.  All pieces are made by hand, and the shop can make only about 1,000 of them a day.  Risshaku-ji uses them when serving tea.
