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.

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

Marble Castella Cake ~ 长崎蛋糕

What's for tea?  A soft, light and non-greasy Marble Castella ~  Kasutera cake.  I didn't line the pan with foil this time, only with parchment paper and was very pleased that the bottom of the cake didn't stick onto the paper and yielded a perfect brown base.  Indeed a delicious cake to be enjoyed at any time of the day.

Chinese Pumpkin Pancake ~ 金瓜饼

This pumpkin pancake is soft and delicate and not too sweet as the sweetness is only from the red bean paste filling.   For a crispy pancake you can deep-fry them but I chose to just shallow pan-fry them in a non-stick pan.   This is great to serve as a tea-time snack over a cup of brimming hot Chinese tea.
