Today I am sharing with you a simple but decorative cookie / pasty (debatable which one it should be called) that you can make any time. Don’t worry this recipe won’t disappoint.
You will need simple ingredient from the pantry and fridge, so you don’t have to run to the store every time you want to bake this delicious dessert. I always tell you to keep a few items in your kitchen in case you don’t have a pantry. Flour, salt, oil, cocoa powder, vanilla sugar or extract and spices must be included.
Many of you wrote me that you don’t have space to create a pantry. That’s not a problem, you can create a pantry in part of your kitchen cabinet. Just put aside a section and organize your pantry products in there.
You will see how easy that makes life when it comes to cooking and baking.
Here is my pantry, that I created using workshop shelving. I also love to make pasta sauces, however I’m not always in the mood 🙂 So on those lazy days I grab one of my favorite sauces from the pantry and create my meals that way. However I still add veggies, meat, herbs, spices and / or cheese to these dishes. So I never use them just out of the bottle.
But lets get back to the cookie / pastry and see what you need for the recipe.
400 grams regular sugar…
120 grams unsweetened cocoa powder
120 ml vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
240 grams all purpose flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar (for coating)
1/2 cup regular sugar (for coating)
Place cocoa, 400 regular sugar and oil into a large mixing bowl. Mix together well, then beat on medium speed; add eggs 1 at a time and continue mixing. Then mix in everything except for the powdered and regular sugar, that is for coating.
Cover bowl with lid or plastic wrap and place in fridge for 1-4 hours. Up to you. I left it for 3 hours (was watching a movie 🙂 )
Place powdered sugar in a small (individual) soup bowl and regular sugar into another.
Take 2 tbsp. of the cookie dough and roll into a ball; roll in the regular sugar, then coat well with the powdered sugar. Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet (leave about 2 inches in between cookies).
Preheat oven to 375F (180C) and bake for 15-18 minutes. Remove from heat and leave in pan to cool.
