CRISP CHOCOLATE COOKIES RECIPE

Crisp Chocolate Cookies Recipe @ treatntrick.blogspot,com

I always love a simple dessert to go with my cuppa like this Crisp Chocolate  Cookies,

This recipe contains least butter or oil yet they turned out crispy but soft inside.

You can use brown sugar instead of white sugar.   It yields a soft and sticky dough so it requires chilling it for 1 - 2 hours.  Once it became firm,  much easier to  shape them.

It is important to place  Crisp Chocolate Cookies at least 2 inches apart on greased  baking sheet. They really spread and become thinner so adjust the thickness  you want them to be..

CHOCOLATE ALMOND (COKDAM) COOKIES

Chocolate Almond (Cokdam) Cookies Recipe  @ treatntrick.blogspot.com


Chocolate Almond (Cokdam)  Cookies  are deliciously simple to  make yet elegant and tasty dessert or snack  You might wonder what :cokdam" stand for.  It's a short form for chocolate and badam (almond).

Some cookie dough needs minimal chill time in the  fridge but these cookies are not required.

Highly  recommended  not making these  Chocolate Almond (Cokdam) Cookies too thick  and  if possible make them almost the same size to ensure even cooking time.   I used small cookie cutter and pleased with the result. I got about 100 cookies  for the following recipe. Each time you use the cookie cutter, dip it first in flour so you will get beautifully shaped cookies without sticking.

Make sure the almond is finely chopped in order to get beautiful shape otherwise the dough tends to break when cutting them.

CRUNCH DROPS



Do you have friends or family coming to visit? Treat them to some delicious and relatively healthy Crunch Drops  Cookies for dessert. These cookies are made with rolled oat and breakfast cereal (cornflakes). This recipe is very simple and not time consuming to whip up.

Crunch Drops

These are healthy, fiber packed, indulgent and delicious! Another tip, you must let them sit about 3 minutes in a pan after baking since they tend to break and still very soft before transferring them onto rack to cool. They are crunchy outside but chewy inside, great for morning tea or afternoon snack too.

ALMOND CHOCOLATE COOKIES



These Almond Chocolate Cookies are deliciously simple to make yet are elegant and tasty dessert.

The dough of these cookies can be prepared in advance, keep refrigerated for use the next day. Substitute your choice of nuts for the almonds if needed.

As we grow older, we tend to be more health conscious and avoid taking overly sweet desserts. This is the reason why I resort to make my own rather than buying the ready made cookies that are way too sweet.

SPICED COOKIES

Spiced Cookies Recipe  @ http://treatntrick.blogspot.com


For most of my friends, cookies were served  during festivals  (Eid,  Lunar New Year or Christmas) but not in my household. We are serving them regularly as our tea time treat.

I  recently bake these Spiced Cookies  and my family raved about them because they are unusual and delicious.  However this cookies is my to go. Simple, easy and loaded with warm spices.

Would  definitely prefer to bake in a smaller portion to maintain freshness but you can easily double up the quantity if needed.  I also make use of orange colored sugar  instead of white one.

To speed up the process, you can leave the butter on your counter  for few hours prior to baking or else use your microwave oven to soften it a little.

Another combination of spices could be added to the dough are nutmeg, cinnamon or mixed spices.
