three GIANT Single-Serving Christmas Cookies – Gemma’s Greater Bolder Baking Ep 103
Hello Daring Bakers! Christmas is in full swing round right here so it’s a good time to share
with you my three single-serving vacation cookies. And due to LG, I’m in a position to convey you
this recipe from my new LG ProBake Convection oven. So let’s get baking. These single-serving
cookies are the right recipe to make one big cookie and so they additionally work as nice items
for the vacation season. We’re going to begin out with probably the most quintessential vacation cookie,
which is a gingerbread man.
In a small bowl, add in room temperature butter and brown sugar. After which cream these each
collectively effectively. Subsequent we’re going so as to add within the egg. And for these of you who requested, I’m
going so as to add in an egg substitute that you need to use on biggerbolderbaking.com the place all
the recipes may be discovered. Subsequent we’re going so as to add in our molasses and when you don’t
have it, you’ll be able to at all times use treacle or honey. Now simply give these elements a fast mix-together.
The molasses provides this a stunning caramel style and colour. To this we’re going so as to add in
our dry elements. Flour, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, baking soda, and a pinch of salt.
After which combine these elements along with a spatula. What I really like about these single
serving cookie recipes is that you just simply want a handful of elements, you’ll be able to combine them
in a small bowl, and you’ll have them prepared in minutes. Pretty, so that is your gingerbread
man batter. And also you’ll discover that it’s fairly comfortable so that you’re going to wish to put
it within the fridge to relax for round 30 minutes earlier than you’ll be able to roll it out and bake it.
Our gingerbread cookie has chilled and now it’s good and chilly that we’re in a position to
form him. Now you may get artistic with this dough and make any form you need; spherical,
Christmas timber. I’m really going to make a gingerbread man however I don’t have an enormous
gingerbread cutter so I’m simply going to do with my fingers. Forgive me if I don’t
do the very best job. Get your cookie dough good and skinny and bear in mind you’re doing this
with out a mildew so any gingerbread form goes to look fairly good I believe. My new
oven has convection bake, which supplies you the very best outcomes in your baking. Additionally, it
has double oven capability, which is incredible particularly across the holidays while you need
to bake off tons of cookies. We’re going to bake these off at 350 levels Fahrenheit
or 180 levels Celsius till they’re good and crisp. My kitchen smells pretty, heat,
and spicy and I can see by right here that he’s completed so let’s take him out. This
gingerbread is completely baked. It’s the similar pretty brown throughout and he’s good
and agency, which implies he’ll be pretty and crisp. When your gingerbread cookie has cooled,
it’s time to ice it. So I’m simply going to take some coloured icing after which simply beautify
him any which manner you need. Do some good designs and likewise don’t overlook about placing on his
buttons. And there you’ve gotten it, take a look at that. A giant and daring gingerbread man. It nearly
seems to be too cute to eat. So I’m going to set this man apart and we’re going to maneuver on
to our subsequent cookie.
Our subsequent vacation cookie is one that’s actually fashionable in Eire across the holidays and
that could be a pretty, buttery shortbread. In a small bowl, add in your comfortable, room temperature
butter, white sugar, after which combine these two elements effectively till they’re good and
comfortable. In your cookie to work effectively, you need this combine to be good and creamed. Now to this,
we’re going so as to add in some vanilla extract, flour, and a pinch of salt. After which combine them
all collectively. You’ll discover while you’re mixing it seems to be somewhat bit dry, however to convey
all of it collectively, go in there along with your fingers and push the dough collectively along with your fingers
after which it ought to all type collectively actually properly. Now, place your shortbread dough on
your baking tray. Now you’ll be able to go away it spherical if you’d like or make a distinct form. I’m
going to make use of this pretty huge snowflake cutter I’ve as a result of it’s the holidays and I would like
to make these actually festive. I’m simply going to roll my dough out somewhat bit to suit my
cookie cutter. As soon as you narrow it out, when you’ve got any leftover dough, you’ll be able to at all times put
it in on prime of that cookie or you’ll be able to bake one other cookie. Take a look at that, I’m glad I
used that cutter as a result of it seems to be actually fairly. And bear in mind final week I made home made cookie
butters so when you’ve got any cookie dough leftover from this week, you’ll be able to at all times flip it into
a home made cookie butter. One other scrumptious cookie prepared for the oven. We’re going to
bake this off at 350 levels Fahrenheit or 180 levels Celsius for roughly 10-12 minutes.
There’s undoubtedly the scent of butter within the air so I’m fairly positive my cookie is
completed. With the convection setting on my oven, you get this pretty, gentle, golden brown on
your shortbread. You don’t wish to overbake shortbread since you need it to be good,
comfortable, and buttery. This cookie smells superb. It’s actually buttery and the vanilla I simply
adore. That is certainly one of my favourite Christmas cookies. That is scrumptious. It’s pretty
and flaky. It’s vanilla and candy and buttery. It’s completely attractive and it goes nice
with a cup of tea. I’m not going to complete this cookie as a result of we’ve obtained one other nice
one developing subsequent.
Our subsequent cookie is conventional, wealthy, and really chocolatey. It’s a chocolate crinkle
cookie. In a small bowl, add in flavorless oil, an egg, sugar, and vanilla extract. And
then whisk all of them effectively collectively. So I by no means had this cookie earlier than I moved to the United
States however it’s actually wealthy and moist inside. It’s sort of like a brownie. It’s so good.
Into our fluffy egg combine, we’re going to sieve in our dry elements. Flour, cocoa
powder, baking powder, and salt. The explanation that I sieve them is as a result of cocoa powder
can usually have lumps and we don’t need any lumps in our cookie. After which along with your spatula,
simply gently fold these collectively. You possibly can kinda get the scent already of a brownie as a result of
of the cocoa powder and the vanilla extract. So while you combine your crinkle cookie batter
it ought to look one thing like this. Similar to a brownie. This man is somewhat bit comfortable so
I’m going to pop him within the fridge to relax for no less than 30 minutes. And keep in mind that
all of my cookie doughs may be saved within the fridge for as much as 5 days and even frozen. As soon as
your crinkle cookie has chilled we’re going to place it onto our tray. Form your dough
right into a spherical along with your hand and you then wish to pat it right down to round 4.5-5 inches. It
is a extremely huge and daring cookie. You wish to guarantee that this cookie stays good and
thick so that you get that pretty brownie texture within the center. Now this subsequent step actually makes
it a crinkle cookie. We’re going to take our dough and toss it into powdered sugar.
Get it thick on either side. Take a look at that. And also you’re in all probability questioning why I’m
doing this however while you see this baked, you’ll know why. And when it’s well-coated all
over, simply pop it again onto the tray. That’s my timer so let’s verify on my cookie. I’ve
been ready to do that crinkle cookie. And I wish to present you what it seems to be like on the
inside. Take a look at all of the fudgy goodness that I used to be telling you about. These cookies are
undoubtedly greatest eaten heat, straight out of the oven, the day that they’re made. Oh
yummy yummy! This one is perhaps a contender for certainly one of my favourite Christmas cookies.
If certainly one of these cookies simply isn’t sufficient for you, I’ve put full-batch recipes on
biggerbolderbaking.com. Come again this Monday as a result of I’ve obtained a really particular bonus video
for home made chocolate croissants because of LG. Thanks a lot for watching and I’ll
see you again right here each week for extra Greater Bolder Baking.
