Holiday Baking & Cookies
Holiday baking and cookies recipes.
Jamie Oliver’s Crumbliest Scones: The recipe was very easy and straight forward. They are crumbly, and taste so good when they were hot off the oven. I served them with some homemade strawberry jam and butter. However, for the best testing and most traditional scones, serve them with clotted cream. This crumbliest scone recipe is a keeper and now you can throw your own English afternoon tea party!
Gougères (French Cheese Puffs): instead of your regular parker house rolls, perhaps you can try this French cheese puffs or Gougères recipe. Everyone could always use some extra cheese, especially the ones mixed with dough and baked to golden perfection. What are you making for Thanksgiving?
World Peace Cookies: It’s difficult to resist these soft, melt-in-your-mouth and intensely flavored sablés. The fleur de sel not only allow the chocolate and cocoa perform their best but occasionally explodes in your mouth like little salty dynamites, balancing all that sugar.
Orange Chiffon Cake: Chiffon cake—much like angel cake in the US (but tastes better)—is one of the most popular cakes in Malaysia and Singapore. Walk into any cake shops or supermarkets, you can always find various flavors of chiffon cake for sale. Chiffon cake is prized for its very light, soft, and cottony texture. Everyone loves it.
Peanut Butter Tartlets Recipe: Rummaging through my fridge, I found some random stuff such as peanut butter, butter, eggs, raisins, another sheet of Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry, spring roll skins(!), sesame seeds, frozen shrimp, etc. I pondered for a while and came up with two brilliant and beautiful cooking ideas. Here is one of them that I just couldn’t stop oooh’s-and-ahhh’s when I first saw these Peanut Butter Tartlets out of my oven. Too cute, too adorable.
Chocolate Chip Brownies:If you are looking for the absolutely best brownie recipe, this is it. I won’t convince you anymore with my words, but I will let you judge for yourself with the pictures in this post. This chocolate chip brownie recipe is a keeper, yielding fudgy, chocolatey, moist, simply perfect brownies every time! Give it a try.
Brownie Butter Cake: This recipe calls for double baking: first, you bake the brownie, and then the butter cake that goes on top. However, the time invested is well worth it when you sink your teeth into the rich, buttery, warm, chocolate-y brownie butter cake. Enjoy!
