These delicious cookies have a wonderful texture -- somewhat sandy, like a rich shortbread cookie, but a little more crunchy-firm, almost like biscotti. The walnuts play a starring role, appearing in the dough and as a rolled-in coating. Frankly, these are perhaps more of an adult cookie than one kids will clamor for, because they're a tad less sweet than many cookies. But that's not necessarily a bad thing, is it?
You’ll have to track down malt powder, which some stores don’t even carry these days. But if you ask the manager, he’ll probably be willing to special order it for you. Chill time is prep time. Cooking time is blending time.
There are a few little preparation quirks that distinguish a good smoothie from a great one - at least in my book. For one, I like to par-freeze the fruit I'm using - not rock solid, mind you - because it helps thicken the drink; room temperature fruit only thins it. Ditto for the liquid I use, in this case coffee - usually left over from the pot I've made that morning. As prepared here, this smoothie has a mild coffee flavor, but if you want a stronger coffee kick then go ahead and use some double strength brewed coffee that has been well chilled.
For this feisty Baileys Martini all you need is some Baileys, some good Irish Whiskey, some strong cold coffee for extra kick and a spirited shake with ice to serve. Enjoy Baileys Irish Martini sip by sip, you won’t want it to end.
Brulot means "burnt brandy" in French. Special fireproof brulot bowls were important tableware in fine New Orleans homes during the 1800s. For a dramatic effect, the lights were dimmed before the mixture was flamed and the coffee added to it. I have not made this (as yet) so the time is a guess.
Super easy and very tasty. I like to make this recipe using the mini angel food pans (like a muffin pan but with 6 small angel food forms per pan). They make very nice individual cakes. If you should do it this way you will, of course, have to shorten the baking time. Just keep an eye on them and they will be fine. Mine bake in about 35 mins.
