Coconut Nest Cookies

Post  cookiecutter on Thu Jul 10, 2008 5:28 pm

Coconut Nest Cookies

4 large egg whites, at room temperature
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon dark rum or vanilla
1 1/2 cups sweetened shredded dried coconut
Egg-shaped candies or jelly beans

Cut two pieces of cooking parchment to fit two 10- by 15-inch baking sheets. With a pencil, draw 10 evenly spaced 2-inch circles on each piece of parchment. Place each, marked side down, on a baking sheet.

In a large bowl or the bowl of a standing mixer, with a hand-held mixer or the standing mixer's whisk attachment, beat egg whites and cream of tartar at high speed until foamy. Add salt and beat until stiff peaks form, 2 to 4 minutes. Gradually add sugar, beating mixture until sugar has dissolved completely (rub a little between your fingers to check; if it feels gritty, sugar is not dissolved) and mixture is glossy, thick, and very billowy, 2 to 5 minutes. Beat in rum, then gently fold in coconut.

Mound mixture in 3- to 4-tablespoon portions in marked circles. Using a spoon, make a shallow depression in the center of each so it resembles a nest.

Bake cookies in a 250 regular oven (convection not recommended) until light golden, about 1 hour, switching pan positions halfway through baking. Turn oven off, leaving cookies inside, and let stand until dry and firm to the touch, about 2 hours longer. Remove from oven and let cool completely on sheets, then peel off parchment. Set candies or jelly beans in each nest. Makes about 20 cookies

Lemon Sugar Cookies

Post  justmecookin on Fri Aug 08, 2008 8:19 am

Lemon Sugar Cookies

1 cup (1/2 lb.) butter, at room temperature
2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a bowl, with an electric mixer on high speed, beat butter and sugar until smooth and light. Beat in eggs, lemon peel, lemon juice, milk, and vanilla until well blended, scraping down sides of bowl as necessary. In another bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir or beat into butter mixture until blended. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill until firm, at least 2 hours, or up to 3 days.

Unwrap dough and place on a lightly floured surface. Roll dough out, a portion at a time, to about 3/8 inch thick. Cut with a 3- or 4-inch round cutter and place cookies slightly apart on buttered or cooking parchment-lined 12- by 15-inch baking sheets.

Bake cookies in a 350 oven until edges are golden, 10 to 14 minutes; if baking more than one pan at a time, switch pan positions halfway through baking. With a wide spatula, transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

Powdered sugar icing. Controlling consistency of icing is simple. If it's too thick, add a few drops of water; if it's too thin, gradually add more powdered sugar. To tint, add food coloring a few drops at a time.

For spreading: In a bowl, stir 3 cups powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, and 1/4 cup water until smooth. Tint with food coloring as desired. Spread icing onto cool cookies with a metal spatula. Let stand until icing is firm, about 1 1/2 hours. Makes about 1 cup.

For piping: In a bowl, stir 2 cups powdered sugar, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 1/2 tablespoons water until smooth. Tint with food coloring as desired. Spoon into a pastry bag fitted with a 1/8-inch tip or a heavy 1-quart zip-lock plastic bag. Seal plastic bag and squeeze icing into a corner; cut a tiny opening at corner of bag to squeeze icing out. Let cookies stand until icing is firm, about 5 minutes. Makes about 3/4 cup. Makes about 36 4-inch cookies

Vanilla Buttercream Sandwich Cookies

Post  justmecookin on Fri Aug 08, 2008 8:32 am

Vanilla Buttercream Sandwich Cookies

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup (1/2 lb.) butter, cut into 1-inch chunks
1/3 cup whipping cream
About 1/2 cup sugar
Vanilla buttercream filling (recipe below)

In a food processor or in a bowl with your fingers, whirl or rub flour and butter until mixture forms 1/4-inch lumps. Add cream and whirl or stir with a fork until dough holds together.

Pat dough into a ball, then divide in half. Flatten each portion into a 5-inch-wide disk. Wrap airtight and freeze until firm, about 15 minutes.

Sprinkle work surface with 6 tablespoons sugar. Dust rolling pin with 2 tablespoons sugar. Roll dough on sugar, a portion at a time, to 1/8 inch thick, turning over frequently and dusting with more sugar if needed to prevent sticking. Cut out cookies with a 1-inch-wide round cutter. Gather excess dough into a ball, reroll on more sugar, and cut out remaining cookies.

Place cookies 1/2 inch apart on buttered and floured or parchment-lined 12- by 15-inch baking sheets. Prick each round a few times with a fork.

Bake cookies in a 300 oven until golden, about 20 minutes; if baking more than one pan at a time, switch pan positions halfway through baking. With a wide spatula, immediately transfer to racks to cool completely. Spread one side of half the cookies with vanilla buttercream filling. Top with remaining cookies.

Vanilla buttercream filling. In a bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat 3 tablespoons butter (at room temperature) with 1 1/4 cups powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla.

Maple-Walnut Spice Cookies

Post  justmecookin on Fri Aug 08, 2008 8:44 am

Maple-Walnut Spice Cookies

Store these frosted cookies between layers of parchment paper or wax paper to keep them from sticking together. You can bake and freeze the cookies up to a month in advance; bring the cookies to room temperature before frosting them.

Cookies:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (about 6 3/4 ounces)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 large egg

Frosting:
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 tablespoon milk
2 teaspoons butter, softened

Remaining ingredient:
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts, toasted

Preheat oven to 350. To prepare cookies, lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 6 ingredients (through cloves) in a medium bowl, stirring well with a whisk.

Place brown sugar and 1/4 cup butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until light and fluffy (about 4 minutes). Add 2 tablespoons syrup and egg; beat until well blended. Beating at low speed, gradually add flour mixture; beat just until combined.

Spoon batter evenly into 30 mounds (about 1 tablespoon) 2 inches apart on baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 14 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on pans 5 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely on wire racks.

To prepare frosting, combine powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons syrup, milk, and 2 teaspoons butter, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Spread frosting evenly over cooled cookies. Working quickly, sprinkle cookies with nuts. Makes 30 cookies

2/3 cup macadamia nuts
1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 large egg
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries, chopped

Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip-Oatmeal Cookies

Post  doughgirl on Fri Aug 15, 2008 10:37 pm

Peanut Butter-Chocolate Chip-Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup (1/2 lb.) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups chocolate chips (12 oz.)
1 1/2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1 cup unsalted roasted peanuts, chopped

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

In another bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Stir or beat into butter mixture until well incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips, oats, and peanuts.

Drop dough in rounded 2-tablespoon portions, 3 inches apart, onto buttered or cooking parchment-lined 12- by 15-inch baking sheets. With a lightly floured fork, flatten slightly into 2 1/2-inch rounds about 1/2 inch thick.

Bake in a 350 oven until cookies are golden and tops feel set when lightly pressed, 12 to 14 minutes (they will feel underdone but will firm up as they cool); if baking more than one pan at a time, switch pan positions halfway through baking.

Let stand 5 minutes on sheets, then, 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 about 30 cookies
