Mint Cookies

January 30, 2014

Hi, this is an old post I found that was never published on this blog. It’s from 2012, but I’m sure it would taste good in 2014 as well.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

I made these cookies yesterday. They taste a bit like After Eight which I really like so yes I’m happy. The biscuit I really wanted to make was Arnott’s mint slice, but mine didn’t quite turn out like the original. I used this recipe, with a few modifications. Anyway, here it goes:

Ingredients:

100 grams of margarine

200 ml flour

4 tbs cocoa powder

1/2 cup sugar

Mint cream:

400 ml icing sugar

2 tbs hot water

1/4 tsp peppermint essence

200 grams dark chocolate for coating

To do:

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees (200 for our gas oven)

2. Mix all the ingredients for the cookies together in a bowl, add some water if needed so it’s all comes together and you can form a ball.

3. Roll out the dough between two baking sheets until a bit more than half a centimeter think. Use a cookie cutter (I used a spice thingie’s lid) and cut out little circles. Put on a tray and bake for around 10 minutes (don’t burn them).

4. When the cookies have cooled down, make the mint mixture by combining all the ingredients (icing sugar, water, peppermint oil). Spread a little bit onto each cookie and leave to set.

5. Melt the chocolate (I used the microwave) and dip each cookie into the chocolate. Then leave them to set and cool down and then you can eat them!!

Mintkakor

Du behöver:

Till kakorna:

100 gram margarin

ca 2 dl mjöl

4 msk kakao

1 1/4 dl socker

Till mintkrämen:

4 dl florsocker

1/4 dl pepparmint essence

2 msk hett vatten

200 gram mörk choklad att smälta på.

Att göra:

1. Sätt ugnen på 180 grader.

2. Blanda alla ingredienserna till kakdegen tills du kan forma en boll med degen. Tillsätt lite vatten om den är för lös.

3. Kavla ut degen mellan två bitar bakplåtspapper och skär sedan ut runda kakor. (Jag använde locket till en kryddburk så mina kakor blev ganska små)

4. När kakorna har svalnat kan du börja med mintkrämen. Blanda florsocker, hett vatten och mintessens tills det är bredbart. Bred på kakorna och låt det stelna.

5. Smält chokladen, doppa kakorna i och låt dom sedan svalna och torka och allt sånt. Sen kan du hugga in!

PS. Egentligen ska man låta degen vila i kylen i en timma innan man bakar ut den, men jag var för otålig och det funkade bra att göra på direkten också. DS.
