Cappuccino Swirls ! Kuch Meetha Ho Jaye :P

Made n Enjoyed
Hello readers,

“All you need is love. But a little Chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.” ~Charles M. Schulz



I would say " All you need is love. But a little chocolate and cricket match to watch, now and then doesn't hurt." I am not a chocoholic, I am a cricketholic !!! not only me but my whole family, we love to watch and enjoy a good cricket match now and then ..and all these reminds me that today is for Indian cricket and Indian cricket fans an exciting and pleasurable day  !



India wins ICC-under 19 world cup , magnificent wins against Australia. Well done boys !! but same time our senior players are not far behind too, they gave India a comfortable victory over New Zealand !! Congratulations men in blue...:)





Sadly for us we couldn't watch these matches live here in UK, why ? It's a long story ! any way at least we are happy that Indian cricket made us proud :)
Coming to my recipe, which I made last week, requested by my daughter. She loves to read, and she brought this book along with her reading books from library. The Big Book of Cookies, she found the recipe from there and asked me to make for her as she was craving for sweet treats !



" A melt-in-mouth, mocha flavoured cookie drizzled with white and dark chocolate it's just the thing to have with that mid morning caffe latte, as well as with afternoon tea with friends "



You will need:-
  • 2 tsp instant coffee powder
  • 2 tsp boiling water
  •  150 g plain flour
  • 115 g cornflour ( cornstarch )
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 225 g unsalted butter ( room temperature )
  • 50 g golen caster sugar


For the decoration
  • 50 g white chocolate
  • 25 g dark chocolate
Method:-
Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 or 190C/375F.
Line 2-3 baking sheets with baking parchment.
Put the coffee powder in a cup, add the boiling water an stir until dissolved. Set aside to cool.
Stir the flour, cornflour an cocoa powder.
Place butter an sugar in a bowl, beat until creamy. Add the coffee and the sifted flour and mix well.
Spoon into piping bag with a any shaped nozzle.



Pipe 20-22 spirals, slightly apart, on the prepared baking sheets.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or untill firmed not browned.
Remove from oven and leave on the baking sheet for 1 minute, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.



When they are completley cool down, melt white and dark chocolate seperatley in heatproof  bowles set over a pan of hot water.
Place the cooled cookies close together on paper. Using a teaspoon take some white chocolate and flick over the cookies. Moving your hand speedily from left to right to create small lines of chocolate drizzle over them.



When all the white chocolate has been used, repeat process with the dark chocolate.
Leave until the chocolate has set then remove the cookies from the paper.
Store in a air tight container , great as a edible gift too or just simply devoure them with your friends and family and have some quality time together.

In my case I would love to gobble them while I watch a good cricket match :D
