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

Sugar cookies are simple to make. Everyone’s favorite. Try this recipe. Ingredients * 3 cups All-purpose Flour * ½ teaspoons Salt * 1 teaspoon Baking Soda * 1 cup Unsalted Butter * 1 cup White Sugar * 2 whole Eggs * 2 teaspoons Vanilla * 2 whole Egg Whites * 2 teaspoons Lemon Juice * 3 cups Icing Sugar * Food Coloring And Candy Sprinkles, Optional For Decoration Preparation Instructions In a medium-sized bowl whisk together the flour, salt and baking soda. Set aside. In the bowl of your stand mixer, using your mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and vanilla and beat until combined. Add the flour mixture and beat until you have a smooth dough. Next wrap the dough in a piece of plastic wrap and refrigerate for about one hour or until firm enough to roll. On a well-floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness using a rolling pin. Cut out shapes using a 2 1/2 inch flower-shaped cookie cutter. Should make about 30 cookies; re-roll the scraps of dough as you go. Place cookies on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Place the baking sheets with the unbaked cookies in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes. Preheat oven to 350 F and place rack in center of oven. Next bake cookies for about 8-10 minutes or until the edges are just starting to brown. Remove from the oven and let them cool. After that in the bowl of your electric mixer, beat the egg whites with the lemon juice. Add the icing sugar and beat on low speed until smooth. Add food coloring, if desired. Now place a small amount of icing in the center of the cookie. Using a small knife, push the icing to the edge of the cookie. Place a piece of candy in the center of the cookies. I’ve done in the photo above. Serve and enjoy.

I love espresso coffee after dinner. I do not like sugar in my coffee, but I like to have something sweet (like a cookie) to accompany the coffee. Being health conscious, I have been searching for a cookie that wasn't too sweet, good and nutritious. I have finally achieved what I wanted. In fact, these little 'cookies' are almost too healthy to be called cookies. They are so very easy to make. You only need a mixing bowl and basic kitchen utensils. I love recipes like this… perfect for the times when you want to bake something delicious but don’t have time for something complex.

chocolate chip cookies
There is much debate about what makes the perfect chocolate chip cookie. Once I realized I would never make everyone happy, I created a version that exemplified my favorite cookie characteristics: small, crisp, buttery, crunchy. The ground oats and walnuts give the cookie its delightful crumbly texture. While many bakeries make an oversized chocolate chip cookie, the Miette cookie is defiantly small. We couldn’t scale the recipe to make fewer, so this recipe makes 13 dozen small Miette-sized cookies and two and a half dozen “normal” 5-inch cookies

Lemon Shortbread Cookies
On a recent trip to Scotland, I ate my body weight in shortbread. The Scots are known as the originators of shortbread and I was seeking out any new bits of knowledge that could perfect the Miette version. The perfection of this cookie lies not in a secret ingredient, but in quality ingredients. This lemon shortbread recipe takes the tart, fresh flavor of lemons and contrasts it beautifully with the richness of butter. In the walnut variation, the nuts add a wonderful earthy taste that we accentuate with sea salt. It is important to stop mixing just at the point when the dough clumps together. This prevents the cookies from becoming tough. Freezing the dough makes the cookies more crumbly and helps them maintain their shape while baking. Don’t under bake these cookies. They should be golden brown.

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.
