Cookies : Wheels Of Fortune
Recipe source : Cook's Nook - Amy Beh
My "wheels" turned out to look like pretty sunflowers instead! LOL.
Anyway, they look so bright and cheery, well enough to welcome the Chinese Spring Festival!
100g castor sugar
3/4 tsp vanilla essence
250g plain flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp cocoa powder
10g melted cooking chocolate
1/2 tsp instant coffee essence
1. Beat butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until light and creamy. Add in vanilla and egg. Beat until well combined.
2. Sift flour and baking powder together. Add the sifted flour into the butter mixture. Mix into a soft dough. Divide into 2 portions.
3. To one portion, add in cocoa powder, melted chocolate and coffee essence. Knead lightly until well combined.
4. Use cookie cutter to cut into desired shapes. Place onto baking trays and bake at 180 degree C for about 20 minutes or until golden at the edges.
