Homemade Flower Cookies
By
Super easy to make and lots of fun for kids. They are very easy to make! ½ teaspoons Baking Powder 150 grams Plain Flour 60 grams Butter 40 grams Sugar 1 whole Egg Beaten 1 teaspoon Vanilla Essence 15 Tablespoons Strawberry Jam Preheat oven to 200 C degrees. Mix baking powder and flour, sift well. In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar, beat well . Add 1/2 of the beaten egg and vanilla, beat well. Then, mix in the flour mixture. It will be stiff so you may want to stir with a wooden spoon. Cover the dough and refrigerate for one hour or until easy to handle. On a well-floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/8 inch thickness using a rolling pin. You need three cookie cutters for this (one flower shaped cookie cutter that is about 2 -1/2 inches across, the second needs to be a circle that is about 1 inch across, and the third should be a circle that is about 3/4 inch across). Using the flower shaped cookie cutter, cut 15 cookies. Next using the second round shaped cookie cutter, cut 15 more round cookies. After that, take the round cookies and cut a round shape out of the middle of that cookie using the third cutter. Now separate the middle, smallest size round. Next brush the medium sized cookie circle with some of the remaining beaten egg, then place that over the top of the flower cookie. Place cookies in a greased muffin tray. Place one tablespoon of jam in the middle of the inner circle of each cookie. Bake 8 minutes until light golden. I’ve done this in the photo above. Serve and enjoy.  step by step photos www.recipesrilanka.blogspot.com

In honor of the day the Pilgrims landed on Plymouth Rock, here’s a rock-shaped cookie stuffed with cranberries, walnuts, and white chips. The fun part is cramming the "rocks" with add-ins, so consider my combination a suggestion and use your favorite nuts, dried fruit, and chips.

Easy Peanut Butter Cookies
To say I love peanut butter is an understatement. Then combine the creamy, nutty goodness with melted chocolate, and it's like heaven on Earth. There are so many peanut butter cookies out there — some crispy, others chewy, and yet more rich and dense. These easy cookies are gluten-free, as there is no flour, as well as dairy-free. Better yet, they don't require any mixing equipment. Whip them up, bake them off, and then you have a light and airy treat in a matter of minutes. Click here to see more easy cookie recipes.

Seven Layer Cookies
Rainbow or seven layer, whatever the kids call 'em these days, have always been a hit in my neck of the woods. The petite tri-color delight is not only good in flavor, but a crowd-pleaser as well. They silence children, satisfy the fickle eater, and they're colorful! Though reproduced, and poorly I might add, by the masses, these remain a tradition of old-school Italian American bakeries.  Though the known way is to use apricot jam, the Borgognone way is to use fresh raspberry preserves.  Click here to see more cookie recipes.  Click here to see Tips for Making Better Cookies.

Today we celebrate cocoa powder of all varieties. Cocoa comes from the bean of the cacao tree. The trees grow in many parts of the world, but the earliest known cultivation of cocoa was in the Amazon, where archaeologists have found evidence of its use dating back to 1900 BC. More famously, the Mayans were known to have used the cocoa bean as food, and currency in fertility rites, while the Aztecs ground it into a bitter drink. Both cultures believed cocoa to be linked to the gods, but it wasn’t until the 1700s that the taxonomer Linnaeus aptly named the source of cocoa beans Theabroma Cacao, meaning "gift of the gods." Less sweet than some, these crinkle cookies are absolutely loaded with cocoa and just a hint of rum flavor. Because the cookies are made with baking powder, I make these with Dutch-processed cocoa and get fat, fudgy cookies every time.
