Post  doughgirl on Fri Aug 15, 2008 11:16 pm

Thin, Crisp, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 cup (1/4 lb.) butter, melted and cooled to room temperature
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (6 oz.)
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)

In a bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until well blended. Beat in 3 tablespoons water and the vanilla until smooth, scraping down sides of bowl as needed.

In another bowl, mix flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir or beat into butter mixture until well incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans, if using. Drop dough in 1-tablespoon portions, 2 inches apart, onto buttered 12- by 15-inch baking sheets.

Bake in a 300 oven until edges of cookies are browned, but an area about 1-inch wide in the center is still pale, about 14 minutes; if baking more than one pan at a time, switch pan positions halfway through baking.

With a wide spatula, transfer cookies to racks to cool. If hot cookies start to break, slide a thin spatula under them to release; let stand on pan to firm up, 2 to 5 minutes, then transfer to racks to cool completely. Makes 32 cookies

Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies

Post  justmecookin on Sat Aug 16, 2008 2:36 pm

Raspberry Thumbprint Cookies

Almond paste makes the dough moist and pliable. Look for it in the supermarket baking aisle. The large holes of a box grater work well for grating the almond paste. Use a wine cork instead of your thumb to make a deeper indentation in the cookies. If you bake both pans of cookies at the same time, rotate the pans in the oven halfway through baking time for even browning.

3/4 cup (3 ounces) grated almond paste
2/3 cup sugar
5 tablespoons butter, softened
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg white
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (about 5 1/2 ounces)
1/4 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons Raspberry Refrigerator Jam

Preheat oven to 325. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper; secure to baking sheet with masking tape.

Place first 3 ingredients in a bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed for 4 minutes or until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg white; beat well.

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Add flour and salt to almond paste mixture; beat at low speed until well blended. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and shape dough into 36 (1-inch) balls. Place balls 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheets, and press thumb into center of each cookie, leaving an indentation. Bake at 325 for 10 minutes or until golden.

Remove cookies from pans; cool on wire racks. Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon Raspberry Refrigerator Jam into center of each cookie. Makes 3 dozen

Add syrup, flavoring, and 1 egg white to butter mixture; beat at low speed 2 minutes or until well blended. Add flour mixture to butter mixture; beat on low speed until blended. Divide dough in half. Shape each portion into a ball; wrap in plastic wrap. Chill 1 hour or until firm.

Preheat oven to 350. Place walnuts and turbinado sugar in a food processor; pulse 15 times or until mixture is coarsely ground. Place remaining 1 egg white in another small bowl; stir with a whisk.

Working with one portion of the dough at a time (keep remaining dough chilled until use), roll dough to a 1/8-inch thickness on a floured surface, and cut with a 2 1/2-inch round or decorative cutter. Place 24 cookies, evenly spaced, on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.

Gently brush tops of cookies with egg white; sprinkle evenly with half of walnut mixture. Bake at 350 for 12 minutes or until pale brown. Remove cookies from pan; cool completely on wire racks. Repeat procedure with remaining dough, egg white, and walnut mixture. Makes 48 cookies

1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips (6 oz.)

Danish Butter Cookies

Post  justmecookin on Sat Aug 16, 2008 8:54 pm

Danish Butter Cookies

1 cup (1/2 lb.) butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup unsweetened shredded dried coconut
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons rum

In a bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter and sugar until smooth. Stir or beat in flour and coconut until well blended.

On cooking parchment-lined 12- by 15-inch baking sheets, shape 1/2-cup portions of dough into 3/4-inch-thick logs, each about 13 inches long; place about 3 inches apart. Press your fingers across each log to make ridges, flattening logs to about 1/8 inch in thinnest parts.

Bake logs in a 400 oven until edges are lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes; if baking more than one pan at a time, switch pan positions halfway through baking. Slide a thin spatula under logs to loosen.

In a small bowl, mix powdered sugar and rum until smooth. Brush warm logs with powdered sugar mixture, then immediately cut diagonally into 1-inch-wide strips. Cool cookies completely on pans. Makes about 80 cookies

For best results, line baking sheets with cooking parchment or nonstick silicone pan liners.

Meanwhile, make glaze: Combine powdered sugar with 1 tbsp. water and stir until smooth, then stir in lemon juice. Drizzle glaze over cookies. Makes 40 cookies

Cookie Base

Post  justmecookin on Sat Aug 16, 2008 9:40 pm

Cookie Base

2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda

Heat oven to 375. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil. With an electric mixer on medium-high, beat the butter, brown and granulated sugars, corn syrup, and vanilla for 3 minutes. Add the egg and beat until combined.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda. Reduce mixer speed to low and slowly add the flour mixture to the egg mixture. Add ingredients from the variation of your choice.

Unless the directions for the variation state otherwise, form the dough into tablespoon-size mounds. Place on the prepared baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake until lightly browned at the edges, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer the cookies to wire racks. Cool completely.

To Make Now and Bake Later: When you mix a batch of cookies, double the recipe. Bake half the dough according to the recipe and divide the rest into 4 equal portions. Roll each portion into a log about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Wrap each log in plastic, then place in a resealable plastic bag.

To save yourself time and hassle, label the bag with the flavor, the oven temperature, and the baking time, adding 3 to 6 minutes to the regular oven time. Freeze the dough for up to 3 months.

To bake, slice the frozen dough into rounds about 1/2 inch thick, making as few or as many as you would like. Bake on a parchment- or foil-lined baking sheet. Makes 40 cookies

Spritz Cookies

Post  justmecookin on Sat Aug 16, 2008 9:56 pm

Spritz Cookies

1 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup sugar*
1/8 teaspoon red or green food coloring gel
Chopped candied cherries (optional)

Beat shortening at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add 3/4 cup sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, beating until blended.

Combine flour, salt, and baking powder; gradually add to shortening mixture, beating at low speed until blended. Cover and chill 10 minutes.

Combine 1/3 cup sugar and food coloring gel in a zip-top plastic bag, and seal; shake and squeeze bag to evenly distribute color. (Too much gel will make sugar wet.)

Press dough into desired shapes using a cookie press. Sprinkle cookies with colored sugar, or top with candied cherries, if desired. Place cookies on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 400 for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely on wire racks.

Note - Red or green decorator sugar crystals may be substituted for sugar and food coloring gel. Makes about 6 dozen

Ginger Chocolate Cookies

Post  justmecookin on Sat Aug 16, 2008 10:06 pm

Ginger Chocolate Cookies

3/4 cup unsalted butter, plus more for baking sheet
2 cups flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 1/2 tablespoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
1/3 cup granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 350. Butter a large baking sheet and set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk flour, cocoa powder, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt until thoroughly combined. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat 3/4 cup butter and the brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add molasses, egg, and vanilla; beat to combine.

Mix in dry ingredients gently but thoroughly, scraping down sides of the bowl as necessary. (Batter will be thick.) Stir in chopped chocolate until well combined.

Form batter into 2-tbsp. balls, roll each ball in granulated sugar, and place 12 balls on buttered baking sheet. (If batter is too sticky, dampen your hands with water when forming balls.) Dip the bottom of a cup or glass in water and use it to flatten balls to a thickness of about 1/4 in., rewetting glass as necessary to prevent sticking.

Bake cookies 5 minutes, turn pan 180, and bake until just set, about 5 minutes more. Cool on pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to cooling racks. Repeat forming and baking with remaining balls of dough. Makes about 36 cookies
