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 :)

Puff Pastry Egg Tarts - 2 酥皮蛋撻

I took the opportunity to try my hands at making puff pastry from scratch when I was on vacation as the weather was quite cooling and I assumed that the dough wouldn't be sticky and messy to handle.
I could make both oil and water dough easily and there were no 'sweat and tears', LOL!  The pastries turned out nice and flaky and everybody gave their thumbs up for this dim sum, especially my dear grandnephew who asked for more!


Oil dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the cold, cubed butter, mash with a fork and slowly combine to form a soft dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the fridge for 30 mins.  (You can do this with a food processor if you wish),


Water dough - Sieve the plain flour into a mixing bowl, add in the slightly  beaten egg yolks, mix well, add ice cold water gradually,( you may not require the whole amount of water as too much water can make the pastry tough), mix well and form into a dough.  Wrap up with clingwrap and keep in the f…

Steamed egg with minced pork ~ 猪肉蒸水蛋

This is a super comforting home-cooked dish which requires only a few ingredients.   An easy to go recipe, I added minced pork to give the dish more volume.   Kids as well as adults will love the silken smooth egg interspersed with bits of juicy meat.   Great to serve over hot rice!

Wife Biscuit (Lo Por Paeng) 老婆餅

Happy New Year, everyone!   My first post for 2015 is 'Wife Biscuit' aka 'Lo Por Paeng', a soft and flaky pastry with winter melon filling which is a very popular delicacy in Hong Kong.  The ones that I find here are not the same as their  flaky counterparts, instead they are crispy and thin.   I've been surfing the internet for a recipe and I was very happy when I stumbled upon a Youtube video from SiuKitchen.   The video is in Cantonese and she gives very detailed steps on how to make these flaky pastries.   The pastries were good and stayed flaky and soft for three days in an airtight container.  I needn't have to reheat them in the oven toaster.
