Melting Moments


Well Mr.P is off to Udaipur and I needed an excuse to bake..so I got to thinking what should I bake that I could gift. Something that is not too sweet, not too rich and not fattening (because he’s been cursing me for making him fat!). So after a lot of googling for cookie recipes I fell in love with how pretty piped cookies looked. They surely look perfect for a gift and they can be made tiny which makes them look prettier than they already are.  So then my hunt for piped cookies started and I surely lost track of time reading and reading recipes. I was torn between lots of flavors and recipes I wanted to try but then just had to make a decision so I went with these adorable melting moments posted by Divine Taste. This recipe is a sure jackpot; they are not only easy to make, look pretty, melt in the mouth but are also eggless! I couldn’t be happier as it meets the needs of everyone I know.

So enough of chit chat and moving on to the recipe.

Cinnamon melting moments:
Recipe source: Divine Taste

Ingredients:
(Makes around 30 1” cookies)
50 gms flour
15 gms cornflour
30 gms icing sugar
50 gms butter (I used Amul butter)
1 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp cinnamon powder

Method:

  1. Sieve the flour and the cornflour together into a bowl
  2. In another bowl mix the butter and the sugar with a hand blender or a wire whisk and blend until smooth and creamy
  3. Put in the flour mixture, milk and vanilla extract and mix until smooth and there are no lumps
  4. Pre heat the oven to 180 degrees centigrade
  5. Put the entire mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle and pipe into stars few centimeters apart on a tin lined with parchment paper as they tend to spread a bit during baking 
  6. Bake for 15 minutes or until the cookies turn golden brown at the edges 
  7. Let them cool and then store them in an air tight container. 

Tips:

-Weighing the ingredients is the key for this recipe to work
-If you think that the batter is too thick that you can’t pipe it then add a bit of milk but not too much or else the cookies will melt while baking and will not hold their pretty piped shape
-You can play with the flavors too, such as cardamom powder, cinnamon, vanilla or rose water
-Topping the piped cookies with crushed nuts of your choice is also a great idea
-They look pretty which makes them perfect for a gift or for lifting up your tea party.
