Hello friends. There’s a lot of re modelling going on at home and I just haven’t found the time to post recipes. Things are coming back to normal slowly and I hope to be able to share some recipes with you. However, the weather is insanely hot. It was around 40 C today. Cooking is quite an effort in this heat.
I wanted to try my hand at making cookie butter. I bought some coconut cookies and found a simple recipe online which I will share with you shortly. I liked the taste of the cookie butter. It was delicious and free of preservatives, etc. besides saving on the cost. You just throw the ingredients into the blender and that’s it! You can of course use any type of cookie for this.
Once I made it, I was wondering how I could use it in a recipe. Instead of incorporating it with brownies or a cake batter, I decided to use it as a frosting. It was really, really good. Quite yummy.
The recipe for the cookie butter is from https://gimmedelicious.com/insanely-easy-homemade-cookie-butter/ .
This recipe makes around 15 muffins.
PREP: 30 minutes COOK TIME: 15-20 minutes
2 cups flour
1 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
½ cup sugar
½ cup butter
Grated rind of 1 orange
½ cup raisins
11/2 cups buttermilk
Preheat the oven to 200 C.
Sift the flour, soda, salt and sugar into a bowl. Cut in the butter until the mixture is the consistency of breadcrumbs. Add the grated rind and raisins. Stir in enough buttermilk to make a soft dough. Spoon the dough into paper cups placed in muffin tins. Bake for about 15 minutes until a skewer comes out clean. Cool completely. Frost with the cookie butter and garnish with some sprinkles on top.
