This was posted for the ZWT 2006. I have not tried this recipe and it is compliments of fooddownunder.com by Colleen Ries. These were the first-place winner in the 1995 Chicago Tribune Holiday Cookie contest.
These chewy Grandma-style cookies will only leave you wanting more! Slightly crispy on the edges with a soft and chewy middle, they are absolutely divine and VERY easy to make! I received this recipe years ago from my friend Linda and it's become a favorite in our home.
I know... Not ANOTHER chocolate chip cookie recipe... BUT, you'll find that these are sheer perfection, large bakery-style, thick and chewy, cookies that taste as good as they look with a fool-proof set of instructions. It was pointed out to me that this recipe is from Baking Illustrated, perhaps so as I wrote down the ingredients from a morning show years ago! Thanks for letting me know.
Ben and Jerry make the best ice creams and this lovely choice is one of their best in my opinion. Give it a try and see what you think Cooking time is however long it takes your ice cream freezer to make it.
From vegan cookies take over the world by Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope. These have the consistency of shortbread; I had to stop my husband snaffling them all. They went down well with a cup of earl grey tea. I substituted the almond milk for soya milk due to my nut allergy; I also added the juice of half a lemon and reduced the sugar by a tablespoon according to my taste
Tenderly spiced with cardamom puffy shells, Choux pastry or pate a choux is an unusual pastry in that flour is added to a boiled mixture of butter and water (roux like) and then cooked until it forms a smooth ball of dough. After cooling the dough to lukewarm, eggs are slowly added and the dough is beaten until it becomes a smooth thick paste. The the dough can either be piped or dropped into mounds onto a baking sheet and then baked, first at a high temperature and then at a slightly lower temperature. The high temperature is needed so the dough will rise quickly (giving it a hollow center) and to set the structure of the shells.
Bakers' Ammonia is a leavening ingredient called for in many old world recipes, especially those from Scandinavia. It is also called "hartshorn". Unlike baking powder or soda, Bakers' Ammonia (ammonium carbonate) leaves no unpleasant alkaline off-flavor in baked goods. You can find it in any major supermarket or a Greek store.
Many of us are familiar with this dessert. It's my own version i came up with after trying multiple times, looking for the correct flavor. This delicious chocolate cake like brownie tops a molten sea of fudge sauce goodness!
