This recipe was in my “to do” list for at least two years. It is the kind of recipe, that you know that you want to make right when you open your brand new cookbook. There was something about this recipe, although it is not sophisticated, that attracted me. I`m happy to say that this was a great success, and I would defiantly make these again.

These are lovely cookies. I can`t think of any other description for them. They have the most delicious lemony taste, and the crispy almond coating, really gives it this extra something.

You`ll be surprised of the quantity of the cookies that this recipe makes (don`t worry about that, they`ll disappear before you even notice). Just  make kind of tiny rolls, even if it may look a bit small, trust me on that one. Also, make sure to bake the cookies until golden, you want the almond coating to be very crispy.

Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies

Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies

This recipe does not require any explanations – It is very very simple to make, and the final result is very delicate, and very tasty (and may I add- very addictive!).

A few words about poppy seed- this recipe requires using ground poppy seed. I didn`t have any, but if you an get it, please make sure to use poppy seed that was grounded in the same day, or that was grounded and then frozen, at the same day. Be very careful with store bought poppy seed, since they tend to be bitter, and may ruin whatever you cook.

Also, if you would like to add a bit more lemon to these cookies, you could roll the unbaked cookie log with granulated sugar with a lot of lemon zest. Then, simply slice into rounds and bake as written in the recipe.

Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookies

In Chocolate, Desserts on September 20, 2008 at 1:22 pm

This is supposed to be quite famous chocolate chip cookies recipe, I think. I was looking for a chocolate chip cookie that contains light brown sugar, and I fund this one.

The cookies looked a bit different from other recipes as they came out of the oven- they were more plumpy, and not quite flat as the others . Besides their looks, their taste was good and not too sweet. Actually, they were very delicate. Overall, this is a good recipe, and not a complicated one.

I don`t remember if I wrote it before, but there is a nice trick for making the cookies look “richer”, and it applies to all the cookies that have supplements (like chocolate chip and nuts)- after done making the cookie dough, put only half of the  supplements amount in the batter. after placing the cookie on the pan, sprinkle with what is left from the supplements and bake. By making this, you will get a richer looking cookies, and certainly more impressive looking ones.

Chocolate Coffee Cookies

This chocolate coffee cookie recipe has a very strong chocolate flavor that combines wonderfully with the coffee flavor. If you don’t like coffee in your cookies, or if you’re just not in the mood, omit the coffee, and still get lovely cookies.

Chocolate White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

In Chocolate, Desserts on August 4, 2008 at 7:24 pm

These cookies were made for my brother, and there is a reason why – Because of the fact that my brother (not Asaf, the other one) is going away for a trip that will go on for at least 6 months, and because he is my number one cookie consumer, and my number one food critic, I’ve decided to make him cookies twice a week. Don’t think that I make this because I’m a super nice sister (just ask Asaf…) but just because I do nothing all day (unless you are consider staring at the TV as an intellectual thing), and because I wont have anyone too make cookies for 6 months (anyone interested?).
If somebody is looking for a little sister that will make him cookies whenever he wishes, just let me know!

So, for the recipe part. This time, because all my dark chocolate was over (who the heck finishes 3 kilos of chocolate in two months?!), I was looking for a cookie recipe with white chocolate, and this is the recipe that I found.
The cookies turned out OK, not very special, but good enough.

Oh, if anybody got great cookie recipe, please send it to me, I have 2 weeks to make 4 recipes, and I’m in desperate need for a brilliant cookie recipe.

And a little cookie tip to finish – if you want your white chocolate will stay white after baking, just divide the amount to two, put one part in the cookie batter, and bake the cookie as listed. About 2-3 minutes before the end of the baking, sprinkle the cookies with the leftover chocolate, and continue to bake until cookies are done.
