I sent out a few orders last week, one was a soccer ball cake (will upload pics soon) and the other macarons.
These orange and blue macarons are an order from Siddiqa who requested these colours to match the theme of her Eid Favours for her colleagues at work, check out her blog post about them here. I had free reign on flavours, so I went with salted caramel buttercream for the orange ones and vanilla white chocolate ganache for the blues. Will be uploading the recipes for these very soon.
Just a quick note: I don’t actually take orders, mainly because I just don’t have the time to, but I am willing to help out if I can, so if you need something, feel free to give me a shout.
A few weeks ago, I made these Oreo stuffed chocolate chip cookies from Picky Palate. They were delicious. My little man, Muhammad Uzayr loved them too, he even learned how to say “cookie”, I now call him my little cookie monster, for a little kid, he can devour a cookie in minutes!
Since he is so into cookies lately I decided I would whip some up for him (secretly, they were for me too). I didn’t have chocolate chips, so I had to come up with something else. I decided on peanut butter and white chocolate. I always have peanut butter in the house and I also had half a bag of white chocolate chips in the pantry. These white chocolate, peanut butter cookies were amazing, the flavours make a great combo. Especially when the cookies are still slightly warm, and the white chocolate is still gooey inside.
White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
50 g peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 3/4 cup plain flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup roughly chopped white chocolate melts/buttons
Pre heat oven to 180C. Cream butters and brown sugar on a high speed till light and fluffy. Add in egg and vanilla and mix well. On a very low speed, tip in flour, salt and baking powder until combined. Lastly throw in chocolate chips and ensure they are mixed through well, you may need to do this part by hand. Roll dough into balls and place an inch apart on a baking sheet. I made fairly small balls.
Tip: I only baked 10 balls. The rest I left to freeze on the baking sheet, then packed them into ziplock bags once they were frozen. Here’s another secret, I would pop 1 or 2 out of the bag and put it in the microwave for 30 seconds. Who knew microwaves could cook cookies? Best thing I ever did! I had little peanut butter white chocolate treats when ever I wanted (I wanted them everyday, sometimes twice a day. Shhh!)
These white chocolate, peanut butter cookies are a must to try out! Let me know if you give it a go!
