amadi: A closeup of chocolate chip cookies (Cookies)
[personal profile] amadi
I owe you all a cookie recipe! Yesterday went all haywire and I didn't get one posted, so today I will post two. First up, one for Saturday, when there's a little extra time for a baking project. This is my fussed around version of the delicious almond cookies that are typically only available at Chinese restaurants. The ones at restaurants, I've learned, are typically made with lard, if made on-site, or with the cheapest form of shortening if pre-bought. Yuck and double yuck. This version is less crumbly and more flavorful, in my opinion, and made with good, old-fashioned butter.

These are not cookies making an effort at healthy. But they're sugar cookies, and who doesn't love a good sugar cookie? And even better, they're also on the easier side of sugar cookies, requiring no rolling, which is the bane of my personal existence. They require a few hours of lead time, but I'm willing to make dough a day (or three!) ahead of time if I don't have to roll it! This recipe makes about three dozen cookies.

I have a friend going through food allergy testing who currently can't eat gluten, dairy, corn, soy, or refined sugar, but can have chocolate with a sufficiently high percentage of cacao. Brownies were a challenge, but not an impossible one!

It's my birthday, and so I'm being indulgent. This is my favorite cookie. In fact, it's a cookie based on my favorite cake. Red velvet cake, however, is complicated. Red velvet cookies on the other hand? Easy peasy.

I asked on Twitter what sort of recipe I should post today, and [personal profile] hily said "something healthyish." Now healthy cookie is, to me, an idea on the verge of blasphemy... or is it? These cookies are loaded with fruit, fiber and nuts, get a dose of good iron from the molasses and are fairly low in fat, too. Can't beat that in a cookie, can you?

From now through May 16, I will be posting a new cookie recipe every day in celebration of [community profile] three_weeks_for_dw, an effort to create new and unique content in Dreamwidth journals and communities to celebrate the first anniversary of open beta. Anyone who like to join in and post new recipes here (that aren't posted outside of Dreamwidth) during these three weeks, please feel free, and please be sure to tag your recipes with the "three weeks for dreamwidth" tag.

For the first cookie recipe, a good way to use up bananas that are too soft to eat out of hand.

Gingery Banana Cookies
½ cup butter at room temperature
1 cup (packed) light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup mashed banana (2-3 medium bananas)
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1½ teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


In a large mixing bowl, combine butter, sugar and vanilla and cream with an electric beater until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and beat just until well incorporated. Fold in the bananas and set aside.

Sift (or whisk) the flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda and salt together into a separate bowl.

Mix the dry ingredients into the banana mixture in small batches, until completely incorporated. If desired, add the walnuts.

Chill dough 30 minutes to 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350°F/165°C.

Drop by teaspoonful onto greased or lined cookie sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cookies are ready when they bounce back when lightly touched.

Since I had several ripe bananas sitting on my counter this morning, I decided to look for a dairy-free quick bread recipe. This one is from The Fannie Farmer Cookbook, 1990 Ed.

This is my Nonna's (mother's mother) recipe for Easter Bread that both my mom and I make every year. It has been converted from the original metric to American weights and measures.

Now that I'm dug out of Snowmageddon and have power back, I'll be making a batch of this tomorrow. It's good eats for a snowy, grumpy time.

Whole and halved/squared matzoh to fit a small baking sheet (or jelly roll pan, something with sides)
1 cup butter, room temperature
¾ cup brown sugar
½ cup chopped nuts of your choosing (walnuts, almonds, peanuts, cashews or pecans all work)

Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C/Gas Mark 4.

Butter the baking sheet or line with a silicone baking mat.

Cover the entire baking sheet with matzoh, leaving pieces whole as you can, breaking into halves, thirds, as needed (square/rectangular pieces) to fill in the space.

In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and stir until the sugar is melted. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring frequently for five minutes.

Pour the butter-sugar mixture over the matzoh. (Be very careful, it is really hot.) Sprinkle nuts evenly over the matzoh.

Bake at 350°F/175°C/Gas Mark 4 for 10 minutes.

Remove and let cool completely (1 hour) and break into pieces.

Well, technically I guess you can bake with spam, but not the sort we've been seeing. The community has recently been hit with a wave of garbage comments. As a consequence, I've had to disallow anonymous comments. If you'd like to comment here and don't have Dreamwidth (or OpenID) account, please ping me and I'll gladly share an invite code.

Also, if you receive a spam comment on an entry that you've made here, please delete it with the "delete as spam" option. The spam team here has been doing a great job of keeping the dastardly types away because people report what they see, so please help them out.

Thank you everyone. Here's hoping to see some holiday baking posts soon!

I tried this recipe last year and it was so good. I'll be making it for Winter Solstice this year, and since it's baked, I thought I'd share it here.

Beginning this Sunday, November 1, I'd like to begin a bit of focus on baking for winter (yes, northern hemisphere-centric of me, but I think that addresses most of our members) and the holidays (more broadly focused, the vast majority of us having something to celebrate in the upcoming months) with shared recipes, tips, how-tos, Q&A posts and more.

So get your best stuff ready, folks, your tried-and-true traditions, your discoveries, your experiments, your conundrums and concerns, and let's get ready to roll them out in the next couple of months!

I originally got this recipe from, but I decided it wasn't quite peanut butter-y for my taste, so I altered it slightly. Plus I simplified the instructions, because I like to simplify instructions when baking. Also, the original recipe came with a frosting recipe that I've never made; I like it just fine without it, though. I pretty much copied it with very few alterations, so I hope it's not considered plagiarism, but in any case, the original recipe is here.
