Alternative flavors of cut-out cookies - Page 2

[quote="dawncr"]Plus, the oats made for rough edges because the cookie cutter couldn't slice through them.[/quote

I understand if you run the oats through your food processor and "chop" them up, you will get better results BUT it does change it.....

I have trialing various recipes for a Christmas cookie contest at work. I am hooked on linzer cookies and discovered a recipe with toasted pecans!! Oh, my, yummy. I think a lot of linzer cookie recipes would make good cutout cookies.
Love cakes!!

I dont remember where I got this recipe but its great

Easy Cut-Out Oat Cookies

Ingredients (Serves 60)

1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar

1 cup butter

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/4 cup oat flour

1 teaspoon baking soda


To make your own flour, place 1 2/3 cups quick or Old-Fashioned Quaker Oats, uncooked, in blender or food processor. Cover and blend 60 seconds. Makes 1 1/4 cup flour.
        


Directions
In a large bowl, mix together the confectioners' sugar and butter until creamy. Beat in the egg and vanilla.

In a separate bowl, combine all the flours and baking soda. Then stir dry-mix into the creamed mixture. Cover the dough, and chill for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/8 inch thickness (if the dough is too thick you will lose some of your shapes). Using cookie cutters, cut dough into desired shapes. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Bake for 7 to 8 minutes and watch carefully to make sure the cookies don't over-brown. Remove from baking sheets and cool on wire racks. Eat plain or frost with your favorite cookie frosting (these cookies only need a tiny amount of frosting).

I use a basic shortbread recipe most of the time 50gm caster sugar, 100gm butter, 150gm P Flour.

 

I add to it some lemon essence and some ground ginger (unfortunately I do it by feel/taste so can't tell you the right measurements) but believe it or not the baked biscuits taste really similar to fruit loops which is a bit of a walk down memory lane to when I was a kid.

 

 I have also done it with lemon juice, lemon zest and ground ginger which gives them a totally different but just as lovely flavour, though I do add a little more flour to feel when adding lemon juice.

 

Adding a little orange essence to my choc chip biscuits (I have a recipe from a CWA recipe book that is lovely) is always a winner too - tastes kind of like Jaffa.

 

I also sometimes split my biscuit recipe in half at the sugar and butter stage and make one half a heavy vanilla flavour and one half a heavy chocolate flavour by replacing some of the flour with cocoa, roll them both out to roughly the same shape, layer them and roll into a log, refrigerate until firm then slice into rings and bake for a swirled flavour. If you don't make the flavours really obvious they do get lost on each other though.

I may not make perfect cakes but I gaurantee they all contain a super special ingredient .... lots and lots of love .
