Resepi Kuih Raya – Biskut Red Velvet Dengan White Chocolate Chip
I am baking this tonight! Weee…. tolong la jadi! tolong la! As you all know, I am not much of a baker although I can cook. When it comes to cakes and breads, memang I fail sikit. Sedih betul! takpe… Umur 31 belum tua sangat lagi (tua sikit je) masih boleh belajar no?! *bersemangat*.
Kalau tanak buat biskut ni, boleh buat ketupat. Ni cara-cara nak lipat ketupat daun palas.
I found this recipe from classycooking.com. The photographer has done such a good job I was almost drooling looking at the pic dan terus dirasuk semangat Nigella Lawson kekdahnya… haha! I will bake this cookies tonight. Kalau hantu Nigella keluar dari badan masa badan lemau dekat-dekat nak berbuka nanti… I will bake this weekend. Haha belum apa-apa lagi dah procrastinate. Camner?
Anyway, don’t you guys think that this is the prettiest cookies you have ever seen? hehe
Wish me luck guys. Sesiapa yang nak try jugak… resepi kat bawah. Cheers!
Resepi Biskut Raya – Biskut Red Velvet Dengan White Chocolate Chip
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 Tbsp cocoa powder*
1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
8 Tbsp butter, at room temperature
6 Tbsp all vegetable shortening, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
1 1/2 tsp white vinegar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp red food coloring
1 1/3 cups white chocolate chips, divided
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, baking soda and salt, set aside. Add butter, shortening and sugar to the bowl of an electric stand mixer and mix on medium speed until very pale and fluffy about 4 minutes. Add egg and egg yolk and mix until combine. Add vinegar, vanilla and food coloring and mix until well blended. Slowly add in dry ingredients and mix just until combine. Mix in 1/2 cup white chocolate chips. Scoop dough out by the heaping tablespoonfuls (about 1 1/2 Tbsp) and roll into balls and place on buttered or Silpat lined cookie sheets. Gently press about 6 white chocolate chips into the top of each cookie, being careful not to flatten the cookies (if you do flatten them a bit just reshape them to the height they had before adding the chips) and bake in preheated oven 8 – 9 minutes. Allow to cool several minutes on baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool. Store cookies in an airtight container.
*If you want a more chocolaty cookie you could replace 1 – 2 Tbsp flour with an additional 1 -2 Tbsp cocoa, the red just won’t be quite as vibrant. Or, you could replace the white chocolate chips with chocolate chips.
