Today marks the final day of our Bake-a-thon adventure, that I took upon along with my friends. We posted 14 different bakes during this month of December. It was so wonderful catching up with all the different bakes that my friends came up with.
Though I wanted to start the Bake-a-thon with a list, it never happened. However I was clear that I should attempt at making basic versions of the regular stuff, along with some breads. I was happy that I managed to make some very good cakes versions. Some of them are real treasures. I hope I will have time to repeat those cakes again.
Konda always complains that I never repeat her favorite dishes again. For one, she loves all my dishes, so decided to repeat the best, becomes tough and second life is too short and time simply flies for us to keep repeating things, is what I tell her, on hearing her say that!
Anyway even after starting Cookbook challenge, my files are not even glanced through first few pages. So hoping I will be able to make more.
Ending this Bake-a-thon with a sinfully delicious, melt in the mouth, dark chocolate cookies, made with whole wheat and almost ghee. The recipe is adapted from Yahoo recipes section.
Whole Wheat Chocolate Cookies
Whole wheat flour / Multigrain Atta - 3/4 cup Cocoa powder - 2 -3 tbsp Salt a pinch Granulated sugar - 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter - 1/2 cup
How to make the Cookies
Take the flours and cocao powder, sift well and keep it aside.
Heat butter on low flame and cook till it changes colour. Turn off and let it cool it completely. It smells so wonderful, almost like the aroma that comes during ghee making.
Add the sugar and cream it well. Then add the flour and mix.
Knead to a soft dough. Roll as a log and cover with a clig film and freeze for 5 -7 mins. Cut into slices.
Pre heated the oven at 170 C. Place the sliced cookies on a baking tray and bake for 15 - 20 mins mins.
Cool for 30 mins. Completely cool before storing.
