Recipe Post 2017 N0.14- The Cookie Club

Hello world!

Transiently, I have taken a fancy in improving and adapting my expected baking posts. Don't take this the wrong way,I take very much delight in composing posts where I write up recipes of my pick, bake them and display them for all of you to view. For example, my last post was very enjoyable and I derive great pleasure from arranging big bake-offs,exhibiting the finale in a  different manner to what I'm accustomed to. However, I less occupied with schoolwork as I'm on vacation,giving me more excuse to bake.  With that,I have created Cookie Club!!The cookie club is devised of  my favored cookie recipes, at the moment being three. To clarify the constituents of the club, each member (cookie) shall hold its own nickname and individual photo shoot,suitable to all occasions.  Without any further ado, let's dive straight into the recipes!

My first and foremost cookie recipe is Chocolate Dipped Strawberry cookies. You'll need:

210g of unsalted butter

330g of light brown sugar

1 large eggs

1 teaspoon of vanilla essence

390g of plain flour

2tsps bicarbonate soda

100g of strawberries,hulled and roughly chopped


Baking in the making:

Preheat oven to 170 C/150 C/ Gas Mark 4.

Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.Incorporate the egg and the vanilla essence,mixing well. Fold in the chocolate chips and strawberries (leave a few aside to press into the top of the cookies).

Roll the dough into balls(approx 2 tables per cookie). Press gently with your palms so they are slightly flattened, and press some extra chocolate chips and/or strawberries on top.Place on lined baking tray-be sure to space them out as they enlarge in size when being baked. Bake in the oven for 17 minutes.

Allow to cool for a few minutes on the tray before transferring to a cooling rack,allowing them to cool completely.

Melt the chocolate,dipping half the cookie into the chocolate. Rest the cookies on non-stick paper, garnishing cookies with sprinkles, if desired.  Here, I bring to you Strawberry Sprinkle!

To accompany Strawberry Sprinkle in the Cookie Club is Wild Blueberry Oatmeal Cookies, a MORNING delight:

2 medium bananas,mashed

162 grams of rolled oats

24 grams of plain flour

10g of dried blueberries

54 grams of coconut oil,melted

1/8 of teaspoon of salt

2 tablespoons of honey

2 tablespoons of chia/hemp seeds

Method:

Preheat the oven to 180 C/ 160 C fan/ Gas Mark.

As before, line a baking tray with baking paper,setting aside.

Within his medium bowl, combine everything,mixing well. Put in a tablespoon or two of plain flour if you feel the mixture is too shaggy and difficult to mould.

Using your hands, shape the dough into cookies,baking for 23-25 minutes, till the cookies are a shade of golden,to some degree and cooked through. 

I name this cute cookie Wiold(Wild and oat combined). If you can brainstorm a better name, express your ideas in the comments below.

I've made Strawberry Sprinkle...I've baked Wiold but we need one more to at least create a trio for the Cookie Club. Who else shall conjoin with the two other cookies?

100g of flour(unless you know the alternative of white flour in the UK...)

50g of plain flour

a pinch of baking soda

2 lemons

50g of brown sugar

50g butter 

1tsp of vanilla extract

Method:

Blend all dry ingredients in one bowl. Zest one lemon, gradually add the butter. Carry on adding enough lemon juice to form a dough.

Allow the dough 30 minute resting time.

Briefly flour the working surface,roll out the dough. Use your cookie cutter to staple out the cookies.

Align them onto the baking tray with baking paper. Bake for 10 minutes.


As the cookie require "beauty sleep" before being baked, I name this cool...Sweet Dreams which I find amusing as lemon is the most sour fruit you can consume on its own.

    1. Of course I'll check out your post! To reply to your comment about being pen pals....I would love to! I apologise for the really late response. I believed I had only viewed your comment a week ago and by then you probably wouldn't be interested to the idea but...if you'd like, we can pen pal...perhaps in the next couple of weeks...?😏
