Last week I decided to challenge myself to try all the cookie recipes in a magazine I picked up - Sunday, I crossed 2 more of those off the list. Here's how they turned out:
First I started off making the shortbread dough for the cappuccino slices - vanilla & espresso-flavoured, rolling them into flattened logs & stacking them together.
The dough had to chill so that it could be sliced nicely.
In the meantime, I made lassy mogs.
As the caption says, these cookies are flavoured with molasses, as well as cinnamon, ground cloves, nutmeg & allspice. They're full of oats, pecans, dates & raisins.
They baked up beautiful (the oven at a lower temperature than called for) - but were perhaps a bit crisper than I expected & would have liked.
Still they were delicious (& the dates were easily hidden as raisins, hehehe).
Next, I baked up the cappuccino slices. These also turned out perfectly.
Crisp like a shortbread & nicely flavoured with the espresso - they'd be great dipped in milk or hot chocolate.
Both Pat & I loved these as well. Success!
