Savoury Cookie Snackboxes



I couldn't help myself—I made savoury cookies. If I have been reading right, they're the trend of 2012. Woo!

There are three kinds—Dried Tomato Biscotti, Parmesan Shortbread Rounds, and Pepperoni Biscotti. The dried tomato biscotti are the most biscotti-like. The pepperoni biscotti are rich with pepperoni onion, sweet red pepper and parsley, so their dough is less crunchy. The shortbread rounds have an intense cheesy smell, and are peppered with cayenne and fresh chives. Holy crap, they are good!

There is a fourth cookie—the red pepper cheddar wafers. I'm not that happy with them, but they are spicy and rather crunchy, so they are the added bonus.

Every one of these has a little bit of heat in them, except for the dried tomato biscotti, which are sweeter.

When you order a snackbox, you receive an assortment of the three cookies, and a bonus number of the cheddar red paper wafers. Also included is a recipe for biscotti butter for some dipping.

Glazed Pumpkin Spice Bread



I wasn't going to make this many, but the recipe was supposed to make 3 7x3 loaves. So I just went with it. Each mini loaf is about 5x3x2, and as the recipe told me, it's better after a few days, when it's had time to itself to think and reach nirvana. The glaze was a made up thing I cobbled together with cinnamon, sugar, allspice and eggnog. Yes, eggnog.

Ingredients: BREAD: pumpkin (fresh, not canned), butter, eggs, sugar, water, flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger; GLAZE: confectioner's sugar, butter, egg nog, vanilla, cinnamon, allspice.
Price: $6/loaf—Eastern, $7/Pacific
Available: 2

Biscotti: Hazelnut and Pistachio--sold out!



Both of these come from the same base, but what a difference zest and nuts make! This biscotti is mini-sized—great with espresso!

The hazelnut biscotti is flavored with filberts and tangerine zest—dark and rich and very nutty—good with a cup of coffee. The pistachio and lemon zest flavored biscotti—lighter in colour and flavour, with more fruity notes—would go excellent with tea. But don't take my word for it.. Try it yourself!

Cool fact: I don't like biscotti. But I have been nomming the ends all morning.

Ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, eggs, butter, [pistachios, lemon zest], [hazelnuts, orange zest].
Price: $7/package (specify hazelnut, pistachio, or a mix)
Available: SOLD OUT..

Chocolate Peanut Butter Truffle Shortbread Sandwiches



While sitting here with a bunch of leftover peanut butter chocolate truffle mixture, I thought, “Well, Beavis, what do you do with this?” I made this up. Sort of. I mean, I combined recipes. That's when I'm at my best (that is where the chocolate caramel shortbread came from).

The shortbread is crumbly and melt-in-the-mouth good (the secret is subbing cornstarch for some of the flour), and the truffle mixture is pure chocolate/peanut butter/cream goodness. Each sandwich is mini (see picture) so as to be the perfect mouthful. And because they're so small, you get 20 little evil temptations!

Ingredients: butter, powdered sugar, cornstarch, flour, vanilla, salt, semisweet chocolate, peanut butter, heavy cream.
Price: $5/20
Available: SOLD OUT

amand_r: (OMG YAY)
So. Alice: reVisions from Candlemark & Gleam is a go. In fact, you can even pre-order it on Barnes & Noble. I haven't had a chance to read the other three Alice stories yet, but they sound fantastic, and one of them is by CA Young, so you know it's gonna be excellent. If you follow that first link you can read the blurbs.

Strawberry Shortstack Cookies



WHO WANTS WAFFLES PANCAKES! I did it again. What can I say? Coloured sugar and strawberry syrup make these cookies pink as the day is long, sweet and chewy, with just a hint of strawberry to make you nostalgic for those days when your grandma gave you a basket and sent you outside, telling you not to return until you were laden with fruity goodness. And then when you didn't bring back enough, she might shut you in the closet and tell you it's elevator practice. Wait, no, don't think about that part. Think about how good strawberry cookies are.

I want to make corn cookies. Mmmm. Corm!

OM NOM NOM NOM.

Ingredients: butter, sugar, blueberry syrup, eggs, baking soda, flour, vanilla, salt.
Price: 7/dozen
Available: 2 dozen

Madeleines



Today is flavoured madeleines. I chose two recipes and went with them: nutella madeleines and raspberry madeleines. From there I also made apricot madeleines. OM NOM NOM.

The madeleines, blah blah French people, blah blah Proust, blah blah flashbacks. Usually lemon infused, these are the same seashell shape with all the love of different flavours. Others have tried to make savoury madeleines, so I might try them very soon. Sun dried tomato, anyone?

Ingredients: ALL COOKIES CONTAIN—sugar, orange zest, flour, salt, baking powder, butter, eggs. VARIED ADDITIONAL INGREDIENTS: vanilla, nutella, red or yellow food dye, raspberry puree, apricot puree.
Price: $10/dozen
Available: 2 dozen asst, 1 dozen apricot, 2 dozen nutella

Order more than one dozen and get a dollar off per additional dozens!

ALSO AVAILABLE: 4 dozen fruit failies--aesthetically displeasing yet tasty love--5/dozen

Blueberry Shortstack Cookies: SOLD OUT



WHO WANTS WAFFLES PANCAKES! A variation of the traditional maple syrup infused cookies, these babies are flavoured with "all natural" blueberry syrup. At least, that's what the bottle says. And all that means is that there's no HFCS in it, so hooray for some things.

I coloured the sugar as well, so they're rather purple all over. I was going to make the sugar blue, but I remember from [livejournal.com profile] emquilxy's days doing market research at Heinz that people have a natural distrust of blue foodstuffs.

OM NOM NOM NOM.

Ingredients: butter, sugar, blueberry syrup, eggs, baking soda, flour, vanilla, salt.
Price: 7/dozen
Available: SOLD OUT

MAKING PIZZELLES TO SELL THIS WEEKEND.

[Poll #1748061]

I shall make the top two flavours.
amand_r: (OMG YAY)
This weekend we are back to the basics and back to the cheaper cookies. Five and six for a dozen! Come on, who wouldn't shell out a fiver for a dozen cookies to arrive at your doorstep this week? You won't have to do anything! Score! Isn't that the price of a trenta moka java latte crappucchino?

Weekend of comfort classics!! )

Next week: a recipe I had to translate from French! And an Austrian cookie. We'll toss them both in a bag and let them fight it out.
