Cookies !! Cookies!! Cookies!!
Next fewdays it is going to be all about baking cookies, cakes, pies and tarts to lure Santa!!
Make merry this season with all things sweet, yummy, fizzy and appetizing. There’s going to be a lot of cooking as well. Well back to these cookies!! How much my kids loved to eat these Chocolate Coffe snowy cookies.
Chocolate coffee snowy cookies are eggless, made out of wheat flour and has no artificial essence or color. They are chewy, yummy and delicious. They have a tinge of bitterness that comes from coffee and the sweet covering with icing sugar tries to balances the taste.
Shape it the way you want to, let kids explore with it and go messy with the powdered sugar if not snow!!
I remember gorging on these cookies while I stayed in Zurich for 7 years after my marriage. Christmas was the best time of the year over there.
The streets were covered with beautiful lights, each and every store was decorated with gorgeous Christmas Trees, the shops were laden with cookies, pies, cakes, and tarts.
Oh Gosh!! It was such a pleasant sight that comes in front of my eyes every time I think of Christmas. Though it was a festive time and people celebrated it with full zest, there was something quaint about that place that amazed me.
All the families used to unite and spend Christmas together exchanging sweets and gifts.
All the Swiss locals cooked delicious food, sipped on the spectacular drinks, indulged in Swiss staple dishes like fondue and racellete.
They generally preferred to stay indoors as it was freezing cold and it always snowed. And how much I used to love snow!!
Well all I can do now is reminisce those good old days and be happy about it. These Chocolate coffee snowy cookies kinda made me nostalgic.
But one confession that I have to make is come what may…I may learn to bake the best of cookies but I will never get the taste of the cookies that I relished in Swiss. That place is absolute magical and enthralling!!
Have you been to Swiss? Have you tasted the cookies, chocolates and cakes there?
If yes than you can totally relate to this post and all you will do is start baking.
With this thought I am planning to try on a chocolate oreo tart, Christmas icing sugar cookies, Oreo Cheesecake and may be couple of more desserts with chocolates and strawberries.
So stay tuned and do look out for this space for more recipes especially for you all making you Christmas as sweet as mine.
Sieve whole wheat flour, cocoa powder, coffee and baking powder in a bowl and keep it aside.
Cream icing sugar and butter with a hand beater or a whisk till it is soft and creamy. Now add curd and beat for few seconds.
Add dry mixture to the wet mixture and combine well and make a soft dough with your hands.
Cover the dough with a plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least a half an hour before baking.
Remove the dough from the refrigerator and preheat the oven to 180 c for 10 minutes.
Take a plate and put some icing sugar on it. Now make small balls out of the dough and roll it in the icing sugar.
Line your baking tray with parchment paper and keep all the sugar cookie balls on it leaving some space in between.
When all the sugar-coated cookie balls are ready on the tray for baking press them gently with your palms.
Bake it for 8-10 minutes in the preheated oven till the cookies are baked properly. Don't overbake or else they will be hard.
Once baked remove the cookies from the tray and transfer it o a cooling rack and let them cool completely.
Once cooled you can store them in an air tight container for 3-4 days.
