Happy Halloween, Delish Dish! I don’t know what your home looks like, but every year after Halloween it seems like we have leftover candy corn. How does it happen? There is always an extra bowl somehow! I found some really sweet recipes to embrace the candy corn flavors of the season!
Happy Halloween, friends! Hope you have a spook-tacular day!
I don’t know about you guys, but as we head into August I always start thinking about Fall and holiday baking. With that, I decided to give these Tangerine Butter Cookies a go since I’ve had them bookmarked for quite a while.
I understand for some of you tangerines may not be in season, but here in California everything is always available. That said, you can easily swap out the tangerine for oranges.
Now with that out of the way, let me tell you . . . you need to make this! Stat. They are one of the best cookies and a new favorite in my home. I was originally so intrigued, because although I’ve made cakes with olive oil, I haven’t tried it in cookies.
In addition to that, the only olive oil I had on hand was a fragrant and fruity kind, so when I was mixing it up, the scent came through real powerful. Which of course made me skeptical that I would have a strong tasting olive oil cookie once they came out of the oven. Along with that, while I was rolling the dough into balls I had a light oil slick from the olive oil, which gave me another reason to pause because I thought maybe the cookies would flatten out into flat discs. But still my curiosity had me and I couldn’t wait for the first the batch.
Out they came and let me say, two words: mind blowing! Seriously. Make these, you won’t regret it. And since I spoke about holiday baking, let me add, these are great for shipping! The olive oil will will keep them moist and prevent them from drying out in route.
To get started click here for the recipe, A few notes:
- For the decorative impressions on top, I used Rosle’s quirl whisk and a vintage wired spatula.
- For the glazed ones, I kept the cookies impression-free and dipped them in a simple glaze and sprinkled on some zest and lavendaer
- The only tweak I made to the recipe was to swap out the 1/2 cup cornmeal for 1/2 cup of almond meal since I didn’t have cornmeal on hand.
Happy brown butter holidays!
Today, I’m shoving one of my favorite ingredients inside of a classic cookie. I’m so into it. Sugar cookies are gettin’ a facelift! Brown butter botox, to be exact.
I used this recipe for melt-in-your-mouth sugar cookies and instead plain old butter, browned my butter first. It’s one of my favorite things to do and I’m not sure if there is anything that doesn’t work with brown butter.
Wait, no. I am sure. There isn’t one single thing. Brown butter wins at life.
It’s super simple too: add your butter (salted or unsalted works, for this recipe I used unsalted) to a skillet over medium heat. As soon as it begins to melt, whisk constantly until you see brown bits appear on the bottom of the skillet. The minute you see those bits, remove the skillet from the heat and whisk for about 15 more seconds. You can find a super easy photo step-by-step tutorial here.
Now please go brown your butter for everything.
For the cookies, I poured the browned butter into a bowl and let it cool completely to room temperature, to the point where it was in solid form again. I found it was best to do this overnight. Once the butter cools, place a piece of plastic wrap over top and let it sit on your counter. In the morning, make your cookies as directed, scraping out all those delicious brown bits from the bowl. Easy peasy.
We enjoyed these classic cookies as is, dipping their crinkly edges into milk. But they would also be perfect with some frosting on top and of course, with tons of rainbow sprinkles. Can it get any better?
