Members of Facebook Group is asking me for Christmas cookies recipe. I do have some recipes in the previous year and i thought I might also share some new recipes this year.
The recipe that i have chosen is chocolate crinkle cookies. Hmmm, I do not know when this cookie become popular and it seems that in the recent months, i have seen a few posts of this cookies.
The cookies look rather different from other cookies. It has a unique outlook resemble a mushroom . This was resulted from the dough expansion during cooking. As it expands, a unique design is created.
It is a dark chocolate cookies that are very chocolaty , soft and chewy in the inside and firm on the exterior. Personally, I think it is a rather presentable trendy gift to be given to friends..
Preparation is very easy. The rule of soft chewy cookies is not to over bake the cookies. If you prefer crispy cookies, you will need to extend the baking timing.
WHAT IS REQUIRED
Servings : About 25-30 cookies
50 grams of butter, at room temperature
200 grams of dark cooking chocolate
80 grams of white sugar
200 grams of self raising flour
1/8 teaspoon of baking soda
100 grams of icing sugar (for dusting)
STEPS OF OPERATION
Microwave the cooking chocolate for 1 minute. Set aside for cooling. You can also melt the chocolate using ban marie method.
In a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the melted chocolate follow by the eggs. Beat until well combined.
Sift in the flour and baking powder, use the machine lowest speed and stir until well combined. Chill the dough in the fridge until the dough is firm enough and does not stick to your hand .
Pre-heat the oven to 165 degree Celsius.
Take about 1/2 tablespoon of the dough, use hand to shape round and put it in the bowl of icing sugar. Roll it and let the dough coat as much icing sugar as possible. Transfer to the baking tray and leave adequate space for expansion. (at least 5-6 cm apart) Bake in the pre-heated oven of 165 degree Celsius for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are slightly firm.
This cookie is addictive and definitely suitable for a chocolate lover. I have already cut the sugar by 20% in this recipe and I will not recommend any further reduction. I hope this will benefit those readers who are looking for some Christmas cookies. You can easily modified this recipe by adding some red colouring and become a red velvet crinkle cookie.
Hope you like the post today. Cheers and have a nice day.
