PINWHEEL C00KiES

Hello People,

Subho Bijoya. Happy Dushera.



How did you all enjoy puja?? well i was nt in town during this festival this time. for a long time i have been planning an escapade for myself. tired of the eccentricity of the city. wanted to get myself sorted.

This batch of pinwheel cookies i made for my Delhi trip. I went for Wills India Fashion Week S/S 2013. My first time, so had to do something special.

this is what the babies looked like


This is the first time i made pinwheel cookies. so two first time things doubled up for double celebration. I was happy to see that people loved it. Strangers, family, friends loved it. This is also special becoz i had used my new mortar-n-pestle ( an unxpected gift from some one special!!!!!!). The recipe & pic i saw for the first time in a food magazine. Here's the recipe:

INGREDIANTS:


  • Butter.......................... 200g, @ room temperature
  • Caster Sugar................ 150g
  • Vanilla extract.............. 2tsp
  • Egg.............................. 1 no
  • Plain flour..................... 300g, sifted
  • Cocoa.......................... 25g


this is while putting inside the oven





METHOD:


  • Cream the butter & sugar together. Add the egg & the vanilla mix. Add the flour step by step and fold it lightly. Beat until smooth, and divide it in two equal portions. In one of the dough, mix the cocoa powder. Wrap both the dough in cling-fling separetly and store in the refrigerator for 30 mins until firm.
  • Flour the surface, and then roll out each dough into a coin like thickness. Put the chocolate dough on top of the white dough. Roll lengthwise & then roll in cling fling & store in freezer for 45 mins.
  • Heat oven to 180 degree.
  • Slice the dough into disc, as thinly as you can. Grease your baking plate, flour the surface well, and put in the discs in batches. bake for 15-20 mins. 
  • Cool and store in airtight boxes.


These cookies didn't even last for a week in my case. I had replaced caster sugar with normal sugar. If you want, you can add some different colour or flavour to the white dough according to your taste.

It feels good to make some beautiful things at times, this surprisingly took very less time. Nd trust me, the one who gifted me the mortar-n-pestle, was happy to taste it!!!

that smile mattered a lot!!!! a shy way of saying, what i wanted to hear!!!!!
