Cookies look so much more interesting with just the little touch of a ribbon – normally I make batches of the same cookies in different sizes, poking a hole through the larger size which I later thread some sort of ribbon through. So effortless and yet making a real visual impact.
Try the cookies as table decorations.
You can put ribbons through any type of cookies but the chocolate colour makes a real statement on white.
Recipe used for these “Brunsli” cookies:
150g brown sugar, pinch of salt, 250g ground almonds, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, pinch clove powder, 2 tbsp cocoa powder, 2 tbsp flour, 1 – 2 egg whites, 100g bitter chocolate, 2 tsp cointreau.
Mix all the ingredients together and then roll out between two sheets of pastry into 1cm thick sheets. Place these in the fridge for at least 1 – 2 hours then take out and cut into which ever shape you prefer and bake in a preheated oven 160°, approximately 7 minutes.
