Chewy Guinness Oatmeal Cookies


Have you ever tried making cookies with booze?  I did, as I had all the ingredients at hand and moreover I was dying to get rid of the Guinness in my fridge.   No regrets when I was greeted with 'tipsy', chewy and aromatic cookies!






Recipe for Guinness Oatmeal Cookies

    Ingredients
    • 1 can Guinness stout (320 ml)
    • 8 oz butter
    • 2 oz jaggery powder
    • 3 oz brown sugar
    • 3 oz caster sugar
    • 2 eggs
    • 4.1/2 oz plain flour
    • 4.1/2 oz wholemeal flour
    • 3/4  tsp baking powder
    • 3/4  tsp bicarbonate of soda
    • 1/8  tsp salt
    • 2 oz white choc chip
    • 2 oz choc chips
    • 4 oz rolled oats
    • 1  tsp vanilla
           Method
    1. Sift the plain flour with baking soda, bicarbonate of soda and salt.  Mix in the wholemeal flour thoroughly,  Set aside.
    2. On low heat, boil the Guinness and jaggery powder till it reduced to 1/2 cup, stirring occasionally.  Takes about 30 mins.  Remove from heat and allow to cool.
    3. Cream the butter, brown and caster sugar till light and creamy, add in eggs one at a time, mix well.
    4. Fold in the sifted flours till just combined.  Add in the vanilla.
    5. Add in the rolled oats, mix well, scrapping from the bottom and sides of the mixing bowl.
    6. Mix in both the choc chips till just combined.  (Dough is a bit wet).
    7. Cover the bowl with cling wrap and keep refrigerated for 4 hours or preferably overnight.  ( I kept it refrigerated overnight).
    8. Spoon about 2 Tbsp dough and place 3 inches apart on a parchment lined baking tray.
    9. Bake in a preheated oven @ 165 deg C for 18 to 20 mins. or till edges are set.  (Keep raw cookied dough in the fridge  while waiting to be baked).
    10. Let cookies cool on  baking sheet for 5 mins. before transferring them onto a wire rack to cool completely.
    11. Yield :  26 chewy cookies.
Note :  1.   Dough can be kept refrigerated for up to 3 dyas, covered or freezed for up to 1 month.
            2.  Cookies are  baked @ a lower temperature to keep the dough from spreading too quickly.

    1. Only 1 can of beer is used, Jessie. It does make a difference to the taste of the cookie.

    1. I'm not so sure, but if you want them to be chewy, don't overbake them. If they're thoroughly baked, then will become crunchy.

  11. Wah! Sounds great. What a tasty way to use up the guiness :)

Almond Butter Cake ~ 杏仁牛油蛋糕

This is a delicious, moist, old-fashioned butter cake full of almondy flavour.  It looks pretty with the almond flaky top, certainly a crowd pleaser.   This cake is best consumed on the day it's freshly baked because of the crunchy nutty top but leftovers can still be kept chilled and reheated before serving.

Country style steam chicken

This is one simple recipe of  steamed chicken dish which I'm sure many bloggers have blogged before.  Tasty yet easy and quick to prepare, this dish pairs very well with steamy hot white rice.

Pandan Angku Kuih ~ 班兰叶龟糕

I've never thought of making Angku Kuih or Red Tortoise Cake simply because it's so readily available in my daily market place.  But there have been so many posts of this traditional kuih by my fellow food bloggers and  they look so cute and beautiful that I just cannot resist the temptation of not trying my hands at it.

I must admit that making this kuih can be rather tedious and the amount of work can really make your head spin.  But if you prepare the mung bean filling a day ahead, then it does help to lighten your work quite a fair bit.  For all the  effort, these Pandan Angku Kuih came out beautifully.  To see how the kuih will be like the next day, I kept some in a container at room temperature.  To my surprise the skin of the kuih stayed soft till late the next day.  I didn't have to steam them again.  All I can say is that my efforts paid off handsomely and I'm so pleased.  Now, I've no qualms  experimenting this Angku Kuih with different flavours :)
