The post was sent in by a dear friend of mine Tray, she’s currently taking baking classes and would like to share some of the things she has learnt with us, since this blog is all about sharing and sharing and more sharing to inspire others, why not!
Take it away babe!
Ok so we all live incredibly busy lives! God help, but we still find the time to do those things that we love! Amazing right? *smiley face*.
Thanks to my darling friend and sister Dressed *hugs* who by the way is truly inspiring with all the fashion tips etc. I decided to do a guest post on the food section because I'm also a food lover, Please tell me who does not like food!.
Today I’ll be sharing the recipe I learnt on how to make scrumptious homemade cookies, very easy trust me.
50-100g / 5 oz caster sugar
1 egg yolk, lightly beaten
2tsp almond or vanilla extract!
225g / 8oz plain flour
55g/ 2oz pistachio nuts or any nuts you like in cookies
Put butter and sugar in a mixing bowl
Beat in egg yolk and almond extract. Stir together and add a pinch of salt
Add the flour
Halve the dough, wrap in cling film and refrigerate for 30-60mins.
Unwrap dough and roll between sheets of baking sheets. This is ideal to improve the texture and appearance of the cookies. In the absence of baking sheets, you can use hands to flatten the dough, do not use dust work surface with flour. Sprinkle nuts and roll lightly.
Stamp out cookies with cutter in any shape of your choice and place on baking sheet spaced apart.
Bake in a pre heated oven at 190 degrees, gas mark 5 for 10-13 mins, then leave to cool on baking sheet for 5- 10mins before serving
Voila homemade nut cookies!
Tried it? let me know what you did differently and how it came out.
