I am in the coloful mode and wanted some cheerful cookies, to me colors always bring happy thought.
I had some dried apricots, dried cranberries and white chocolate in the cupboard and thought that this would be a nice combination in a lemon flavored cookies.
Paper bag DIY HERE
250 g softened butter
2,5 dl sugar
1 large egg
3 tablespoon lemon juice
4 dl cups flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
200 chopped white chocolate
1,5 dl chopped dried apricots
1,5 dl dried cranberries
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
Preheat oven to 150 C
Cream together the butter and white sugar until smooth.
Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the lemon juice. Sift flour and baking soda into the butter mixture and mix then stir in chopped chocolate, apricots, cranberries and lemon peel.
Place a spoon full of cookie dough on a baking paper lined baking tray.
Bake for about 15 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are slightly browned.
Let the cookies cool on a rack before eating them:)
These cookies are ordinary chocolate chip cookies with added coconut flakes.
It is a fairly big batch, It makes about 6 trays with 9 cookies each.
|Old picture just to illustrate
3 cups room-temperature regular salted butter
2 cups brown sugar
3 large eggs
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 cups all-purpose flour
6 cups oatmeal(blend after measuring)
2 tsp baking soda
When I make a big batch like this I usually divide it in three and make three different type og cookies. For each third of the batch I use 12 oz pack of semi-sweet chocolate chip morsels
Start by mixing the butter and sugar to a creamy consistency
Add in the eggs one by one.
add the vanilla extract
At the end ad flor, oatmeal and baking soda, mix untill everything is incorporated, but do not over mix.
As I mentioned earlier I add 12 oz of chocolate chips to a third of the batch and for the cookies on top I also added 1 cup of coconut flakes.
Make your own mixes, different colored chocolate, nuts and berries, there are so many possibilities, your imagination is the limit.
Place the dough in the fridge for about 30 minutes before you bake the it
Divide your dough into 18 equal parts and place them on a lined baking tray and bake them in the middle of the oven for about 20 minutes on 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
When they are done, pull the baking liner off the tray with the cookies on onto a cool tray.
A long baking time on a lower heat and quick cooling of the cookies gives you cookies thar are crisp on the outside and chewy in the middle.
Good luck and enjoy
