MAYAN CHOCOLATE COOKIES

by Jacqueline Higuera McMahan

San Francisco Chronicle Food section, May 1, 2002

 

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon instant espresso coffee powder, such as Medaglia D'Oro

1/4 teaspoon finely ground black pepper

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

3/4 cup unsalted butter at room temperature

1 cup sugar

1 large egg

2 teaspoons vanilla

About 1/2 cup chocolate chips

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, espresso powder, black and cayenne peppers and the cocoa powder.

 

Using an electric mixer, beat the butter with 3/4 cup of the sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla; mix well. Add the sifted dry ingredients and blend well. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

 

Line a baking sheet with parchment or a nonstick lining such as Silpat. Place the remaining 1/4 cup sugar in a small bowl.

 

Roll a piece of dough about the size of a small walnut between the palms of your hands. Using your index finger, press an indentation in the center of the cookie. Place 4 chocolate chips in the indentation. Mold the dough around the chips to enclose them completely; press to seal. Roll the dough into a ball, then roll in the sugar and place on the baking sheet. Continue forming the rest of the dough.

 

Bake for 8 minutes. Do not overbake. These cookies are best when still a little moist in the center.

 

Yields 36 to 40 cookies.

"Christmas cookies, oh so good... and festive enough to trim the tree!"

"You see, Grandma's old fashioned Molasses is the sweetest nationally advertised molasses and the only one that does not contain sulphur dioxide."

Christmas Recipe Darrell Lea Rocklea Road on a Spode Christmas Tree serving plate

..anche gli Struffoli si prestano ad infinite interpretazioni...non esiste una ricetta tassativa e alla fine ognuno segue i propri gusti...La "mia" ricetta è in realtà della madre di una mia amica...grazie Nichi!^_^

 

Ingredienti per 2 piatti medi:

Farina quanto basta

2 uova

1 noce di burro

2 cucchiai di zucchero

1 bustina di vanillina

Buccia di un limone

Miele millefiori

1 pizzico di cannella (facoltativo)

Codette colorate per decorare

Olio di semi per friggere

 

Unite le uova alla farina, lo zucchero, la vanillina, il burro e le zeste di limone grattugiate fino a formare un impasto compatto, simile a quello degli gnocchi, dal quale ricaverete dei bastoncini che taglierete formando gli struffoli. Per quanto riguarda la grandezza tenete presente che in cottura raddoppiano di volume.

Friggete gli struffoli un po' per volta per non fare abbassare la temperatura dell'olio.. la cottura è abbastanza rapida quindi non distraetevi perché rischiereste di farli bruciare!:)

Man mano che li cuocete adagiateli su carta assorbente. Mentre si freddano fate sciogliere in un tegame capiente del miele nel quale verserete e farete insaporire gli struffoli. Se volete potete aggiungere della scorza di limone grattugiata anche nel miele.

Una volta pronti, versate il tutto su un piatto da portata e decorate come più vi piace! Io ho usato codette e confettini colorati, mandorle in scaglie e foglie di mandarino :P

Buon Anno a tutti!

Or black bottom muffins, depending on who you ask from my boyfriend's family.

 

Bun batter:

3c. flour

2c. white sugar

1/2c. cocoa

2tsp. baking soda

1/4tsp. salt

 

Combine dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add:

 

2c. water

2/3c. vegetable oil

2tsp. vanilla extract

2tsp. white vinegar

 

Set aside. In a separate bowl, beat together:

 

8oz. cream cheese

1/3c white sugar

1 egg

1/3tsp. salt

3/4c. chocolate chips

 

Line muffin pans. Fill cups 1/2-2/3 full with chocolate batter. Drop one rounded teaspoon of cream cheese mixture into the center of each cup. Do not stir.

 

Bake at 350F for 20 minutes.

Description: This recipe for “Six Minst Pyes" is bound amongst the Conway Papers, part of the State Papers of Charles I, created by Edward Conway, Charles’ Secretary of State.

 

Although at first it may seem strange for there to be a mince pie recipe tucked in amongst the more usual documents of the Secretary of State and the Privy Council, it is worth remembering that many of the Secretaries treated the State Papers as their own filing system. It is therefore not unusual to find items such as poems, drawings or recipes amongst them.
