Cinnamon Cookies With Pistachio Frosting

Cinnamon cookies

This recipe is the kind of recipe that you find yourself making over and over again simply because that these has something extra about them. These have a lovely flavor, and  a bit of  character, thanks to the tangy frosting and the delicious pistachios.

If you are a bit tight at time, or you just dont have the patience to wait, you could always put the dough in the freezer for 30 minutes, and than make the cookies. Also, the frosting is totally optional. Sure, it adds quite a lot, but you could manage without it.

About the size- you could certainly make these in any size, from monster cookies to tiny ones, it really does`nt matter. I usually make these about 4 cm. diameter, so they are nice and easy to eat, and could be finished in two bites.

One more thing to notice is the frosting. Make sure to make it thick enough, so it will remain firm. Don`t be afraid to add more sugar. Oh, please use freash lemon juice if you can. I know it`s only one teaspoon, but freash juice really makes a difference.

Maple, Nuts and Cinnamon Cake

In Desserts on August 12, 2008 at 2:33 pm

This cake is going around the food forums for quite a long time. This is a very simple cake; so you don’t need to run to the next supermarket to get special ingredient for this.

I didn’t make this cake with maple, i made it with Silan, which is a date/palm honey. You can make it either way, it will turn out great.

So, nothing special to add here, this is just a recipe for a very nice cake, that you can make while running out of time, or if you just looking for a nice treat.

Yeast cakes – it`s all about the dough (and the fillings…)

In Chocolate, Desserts on August 4, 2008 at 5:45 pm

Making a yeast cake isn’t the thing that you make when you don’t have time and nerves. But, it’s the thing to make when you want your house to be filled with outrageously angelical smell, and you want to bake something that tastes like home.

This dough is so good, it comes out full of flavors but not too heavy. It is very comfortable dough to work with, even in the hot summer days.

The fillings that I wrote down here are just suggestions; you can fill the cakes with almost anything. These kinds of cakes are the right place to get creative.

Cinnamon Rolls

In Desserts on July 25, 2008 at 11:41 pm

There are endless variations for cinnamon rolls. I like this one especially because of the dough. This dough recipe is not too sweet with a slight hint of the salt, and a great texture.

Overall, this is a good recipe, and the greatest thing about it, is that the rolls can be frozen, and if you defrost them properly, they will taste like they just came out of the oven.
