CHOCOLATE DIPPED COOKIES

Wishing all of you a very Happy Valentine's day!, a lot of us are celebrating it in a big way judging by the number of entries I received today for my event- MY FAVORITE THINGS- LOVE IS IN THE AIR (HEART SHAPED FOODS), so I too decided to declare my love (for food :)) and make these crisp, fun heart shaped cookies to enjoy over a cup of coffee with Gagan....

chocolate dipped cookies

Makes 36

Ingredients-

  • All purpose flour-1 cup +1 tbsp
  • Castor sugar-1/2 cup
  • Butter-50 gms
  • Vanilla essence-1 tsp OR
  • Orange food colour and flavor- a few drops
  • Egg-1
  • a pinch of salt
  • 100 gms plain sweetened chocolate
  • Milk- 1 tbsp

Method-

Preheat oven at 180 C.Cream the butter and sugar together well, I do this in the small jar of my blender, add the egg, orange colour and flavor/ vanilla essence, salt and pulse for a few seconds in the blender itself, scrape out in a large bowl, tip in the flour and knead to a smooth, tight dough. Refrigerate for at least 1/2 an hour.

Roll out thinly and cut with a heart shaped cookie cutter, bake for 15 minutes.Cool.

While the cookies are baking ,break chocolate into a small bowl and add the milk, heat over a slow fire adding more milk if necessary to melt completely, dip half the cooled cookie in it or spoon over, let set for a few minutes, bite in...yummy!

These delicious bites are off to my event-Love is in the air(Heart shaped foods)
