Caramel Sandwich Cookies

Post  justmecookin on Fri Jul 04, 2008 8:11 pm

Caramel Sandwich Cookies

About 1 cup (1/2 lb.) butter or margarine, at room temperature
2/3 cup sugar
2 large egg yolks
1 large egg
3 tablespoons dark rum
1 teaspoon vanilla
About 2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking powder
About 1 3/4 cups dulce de leche or caramel sauce
About 1 cup sweetened flaked dried coconut

In a large bowl, with a mixer on medium speed, beat 1 cup butter and sugar until smooth. Add egg yolks, whole egg, rum, and vanilla and beat until well blended.
2. In a medium bowl, mix 2 cups flour, cornstarch, and baking powder. Stir into butter mixture, then beat until well blended. Divide dough in half, press each half into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, and freeze until firm, about 30 minutes.

Unwrap dough. On a lightly floured surface, with a floured rolling pin, roll one disk at a time to about 1/8 inch thick. With a floured, 2- to 3-inch round cutter, cut out cookies. Place about 1 inch apart on buttered 12- by 15-inch baking sheets. Gather excess dough into a ball, reroll, and cut out remaining cookies.

Bake in a 350º regular or convection oven until cookie edges just begin to brown, about 10 minutes. If baking two sheets at once in one oven, switch their positions halfway through baking. Let the cookies cool on sheets for 5 minutes, then use a wide spatula to transfer them to racks to cool completely.

Turn half the cookies bottom side up and spread each with about 1 tablespoon dulce de leche. Top with remaining cookies, bottom side down. Place coconut in a shallow bowl. Gently squeeze each sandwich until filling begins to ooze out sides, then roll edges in coconut. Makes 18 to 25 sandwich cookies

Chocolate Ganache Sandwich Cookies

Post  Dee Dee on Thu Jul 10, 2008 10:18 am

Chocolate Ganache Sandwich Cookies

1 12-ounce bag semisweet chocolate chips
2 cups heavy cream
2 9-ounce boxes Nabisco Famous Chocolate Wafers

Melt the chocolate chips in the heavy cream over low heat, stirring occasionally until blended. Remove from heat and chill in the refrigerator until cool but not firm. (Can be made ahead to this point up to 2 days ahead, but allow the cream to soften before proceeding.) Beat the chocolate cream with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes. Assemble the sandwiches with 2 Chocolate Wafers and a few tablespoons of ganache.

Note: If you like crispy cookies and creamy filling, make these as close to party time as possible. For a softer, ice-cream-sandwich type of dessert, make them 1 day ahead and keep them covered in the refrigerator. The wafers will absorb some of the filling and become more cakelike. Makes 30 servings

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.

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

Chocolate-Macadamia Nut Clusters

Post  cookiecutter on Thu Jul 10, 2008 4:07 pm

Chocolate-Macadamia Nut Clusters

8 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, chopped
1/4 cup (1/8 lb.) butter
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 cups unsalted roasted macadamia nuts
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup sweetened flaked dried coconut (4 oz.)

In a heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water (bottom of bowl should not touch water), stir chopped chocolate and butter often until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from over water and let cool to room temperature, about 15 minutes.

In a large bowl, with an electric mixer on high speed, beat sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth. Add chocolate mixture and beat until well blended. Stir in flour and baking powder, then beat just until moistened. Stir in macadamia nuts, chocolate chips, and coconut.

Drop dough in 1-tablespoon portions, about 2 inches apart, onto buttered or cooking parchment-lined 12- by 15-inch baking sheets.

Bake cookies in a 350° oven just until firm on the edges but still soft when pressed in the middle, 8 to 10 minutes (see notes); if baking more than one pan at a time, switch pan positions halfway through baking. Let cookies cool on sheets for 5 minutes, then use a wide spatula to transfer to racks to cool completely. Makes about 42 cookies

Chocolate Thumbprints

Post  cookiecutter on Thu Jul 10, 2008 4:08 pm

Chocolate Thumbprints

1 cup (1/2 lb.) butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 large egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
About 1/3 cup turbinado sugar
Chocolate ganache

In a bowl, with an electric mixer on high speed, beat butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla until well blended, scraping sides of bowl as needed.

In another bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and salt. With mixer on low speed, beat flour mixture into butter mixture until well blended. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill until dough is firm but pliable, about 30 minutes.

Place about 1/3 cup turbinado sugar in a shallow bowl. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and roll in turbinado sugar to coat. Place 1 inch apart on buttered or cooking parchment- lined 12- by 15-inch baking sheets. Press your thumb into the center of each cookie to make a 1/2-inch-deep indentation.

Bake cookies in a 325° oven until lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes; if baking more than one pan at a time, switch pan positions halfway through baking. Transfer cookies to a rack to cool completely (if indentations have disappeared, make them again while cookies are warm).

Carefully fill each indentation with about 1 teaspoon chocolate ganache. Let stand until ganache is shiny and firm to the touch, about 1 hour (or chill for about 30 minutes). Makes about 50 cookies

Chocolate ganache. In a heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water (bottom of bowl should not touch water), occasionally stir 6 ounces chopped bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, 2 tablespoons whipping cream, 1 tablespoon corn syrup, and 1 tablespoon butter until chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and let cool until thick but not firm, about 15 minutes. Makes about 1 1/4 cups.

Note - Turbinado sugar is a golden-brown, large-crystal sugar, sometimes labeled raw sugar or Demerara sugar. If you can't find it, substitute additional granulated sugar.

Orange-Infused Cherry-Almond Biscotti

Post  cookiecutter on Thu Jul 10, 2008 4:09 pm

Orange-Infused Cherry-Almond Biscotti

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour (about 7 1/2 ounces)
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour (about 5 1/8 ounces)
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon grated orange rind
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
3 large eggs
3/4 cup dried sweet cherries, chopped
3/4 cup slivered almonds, toasted and chopped
Cooking spray (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Combine rind, butter, juice, almond extract, and eggs in a bowl; stir with a whisk.

Add egg mixture to flour mixture; stir until a soft dough forms. Stir in cherries and almonds. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 8 times. Divide dough in half. Shape each portion into an 11-inch-long roll. Place rolls 4 inches apart on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray or lined with parchment paper.

Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until golden. Remove the rolls from pan, and cool for 10 minutes on a wire rack. Cut each roll diagonally into 20 (1/2-inch) slices. Carefully stand slices upright on baking sheet.

Reduce oven temperature to 325°. Bake biscotti for 20 minutes or until almost firm (biscotti will be slightly soft in center but will continue to harden as they cool). Remove from baking sheet; cool completely on a wire rack. Makes 40 biscotti

Apricot Crumbles

Post  cookiecutter on Thu Jul 10, 2008 4:13 pm

Apricot Crumbles

2 sticks unsalted butter, cold, cut into pieces
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup apricot jam or preserves
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

Heat oven to 375°. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with 1 tablespoon of the butter.

In a food processor, combine the flour, granulated and light brown sugars, baking powder, and salt. Pulse to combine. Add the remaining butter and pulse until crumbly. Add the egg yolk and vanilla and pulse until the mixture just comes together but is still crumbly. Transfer 1/2 cup of the dough to a small bowl or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Use your fingertips to press the remaining dough evenly into the baking dish, pushing the dough up about 1/4 inch around the edge.

Combine the jam and ginger in a small bowl. Spread the mixture evenly over the crust. Crumble the remaining refrigerated dough over the top. Bake until golden, about 35 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes before cutting. Makes 9 servings
