No fashion or home deco today. Just some little adventure of mine. Somewhere along the line I mentioned that I was going to bake cookies as a valentines gift. Two days ago it was time to get bakin’ ! It was quiet and adventure to find the right recipe and gather all the ingredients. The baking part was so much fun! Afterwards, my kitchen looked like a battlefield, and I spend more than hour on cleaning the mess. He smiled so cute when he got his little cookiejar! Here are some photo’s and the basic recipe I used:
150 grammes of butter
200 grammes of flower
3. Add all the ingredients in a mixingbowl
For this you need to add some cocoa powder, melted chocolate and/or chocolate chips and knead again. You melt chocolate ‘au bain marie’ !!! *
7. Dust the surface of the table with flower
8. Roll out the dough and cut forms
You melt chocolate au bain marie. You boil water and place a heat resistant plate over the pan of boiling water. You put the chocolate in the plate and wait till it has molten. If you melt the chocolatle directly in a pan it has a high chance of burning!
