gift box cookies cake recipe

Good to see you again dear! I hope you are well after Christmas, not for another but we have many other goodies to make and eat on New Year's Eve. :))

Today I bring you some cookies, which besides being delicious, are simply adorable. Even if we have prepared them for Christmas, especially for Santa, they can be prepared for any occasion. Or they can be given as a gift. 😉

Ingredients:

  • For the brown part:
  • 1 or
  • 100 g butter
  • 100 g sugar
  • 100 g dark chocolate
  • esenta de rom
  • 1 tablespoon black cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ~ 280 g flour
  • For the white part:
  • 1 or
  • 100 g butter
  • 100 g sugar
  • 100 g white chocolate
  • vanilla essence
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ~ 280 g flour

Method of preparation:

The broken chocolate is melted on low heat together with the butter, it is homogenized and left to cool.

Add the sugar (preferably powder) and mix until the composition becomes like a cream. Add the egg and mix well. At the end we incorporate flour mixed with baking powder and cocoa. Let cool for 1 hour.

Proceed exactly with the white chocolate dough, which is also left to cool for 1 hour.

Eiii… and now follows the part that gave me headaches. :)) No, it's not hard… it just took me a while to understand how those strips of dough are laid out. :))

Divide the two doughs into two parts. Each side is spread with a rolling pin on a piece of baking paper. This will make it easier for us to handle the dough.

Over one of the white parts we put a brown part and cover with another white part. To make it easier to cut and divide the dough ochiometrically, I first cut it into 4 wide strips, then from each wide strip I cut narrow strips 1-1.5 cm thick.

From the remaining brown sheet we cut strips as wide as the height of the striped strips.

Then join two striped strips, with a brown strip in the middle, placed "standing".

The strips can be greased with egg whites to stick better, but it's ok even if they are slightly pressed by hand.

With a sharp knife, cut pieces of about 1.5 cm and place them "lying" in the tray lined with baking paper. Make a few "bows" of brown dough (there are some leftovers from the cut) and put a bean of white dough in the middle.

Put the tray in the oven over medium heat for about 15 minutes, until the "sole" of the cookies browns slightly. Remove to a grill and leave to cool.

Store in an airtight box.
