Holiday Feast Part 3 - Desserts - Wheat Chocolate "Chip" Cookies

I came across Fuji Mama's Blog Site over the holidays whilst looking for a new Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe.  I was so intruiged cause she made a side by side comparison of the differenct cookie recipes she experimented with. Apparently less butter makes for softer 'chewier' cookies! Who knew, right?

So inspired by her experiment, I made some tweaks on the final recipe Fuji Mama ended up with by changing and addingsome of the chocolate and changing the flour.  Since I had some wheat flour, I decided to use that for the cookies (I was kinda worried that they were going to get rock hard but I crossed my fingers and it worked)!

The original recipe is found below with my tweaks in pink font.

@nestlefoodie’s Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies

Recipe from Chris Garboski, adapted from the Original Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
Makes 60 cookies

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (I used 1 c all purpose flour and 1 1/4 cups wheat flour)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups (12-ounce package) Nestle Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (I used 1 pack of Hershey's Mini Kisses AND about 1-2 cups of M&M's)

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.  In a separate large mixer bowl, beat together the butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract until the dough is creamy.  Add the eggs, one at a time, beating the dough well after each addition.  Gradually beat in the flour mixture.  Stir in the chocolate chips.  Scoop out rounded tablespoons of dough and place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.

3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden brown.  Cool on the baking sheets for 2 minutes and then remove the cookies to wire racks to cool completely.



Here are the cookies cooling on wire racks beside my apple pie :)


The cookies tasted yummy if you don't mind the grainy texture of wheat flour.  My nieces and nephews didn't mind cause they ate all of hte cookies even before dinner started.  I'll probably make this again pretty soon after my post holiday "diet".

No Bake Graham Cracker Brownies

I bought crushed graham crackers from Rustan's the other day and thought of trying out the no bake recipe on the package. It seemed pretty easy enough so I decided to just make revisions to the recipe as I went along.  Besides I didn't want to keep left over crushed graham crackers so I did 2 batches and modified with whatever ingredients I could find at home.  The receipe is below with my modifications in magenta. :)

ps. Mr. Man enjoyed these - as usual he ate them with ice cream :)

Bol-anon Goodies!

We just got back from Bohol and since my parents are from there, I knew what to get for pasalubong.  I want to feature some of the yummy products that I bought and will use some of the items I bought for a few recipes in the future.
Bohol Bee Farm - I had to stop myself from getting all of the items from the store. These goodies are great, healthy and cost efficient! 



Yummy Pesto Spread, wonderful on toast or crackers!




This Honey Spread wasn't so bad. You don't really get the same taste as when you put butter and honey on toast. It tasted more like sweetened margarine to me. 



 
This is one of their best sellers - locally produced honey.  There are a variety of honey that's available so you need to check with the sales lady as to what kind are the sweeter vs. more bland ones.  
As a kid, I would eat half a bag of Bohol Broas everytime we had them at home.  I had always wondered why the broas from Bohol were different from the ones in Quezon.  These pastries are s…

Homemade ONE EGG Gluten Free Mayonnaise

Mayonnaise is a common condiment made by emulsifying an egg (typically egg yolks) with oil and vinegar or lemon juice.  Emulsifying basically means mixing 2 liquids with varying qualities together to make 1 mixture (like when mixing medicine or mixing oil and water).

I never really liked commercial mayo.  Ever since I was a kid, I hated the way mayo smelled.  It leaves a weird smell on your fingers after eating a sandwich and its particularly greasy and slimy.  Just recently I was kinda forced (well I was being practical and felt had to use my last 2 packets of light mayo) to use store bought mayo and regretted it.  It tasted like plastic and it left an after taste and after smell that I really didn't like.

So, I consulted my trusty GF cookbook - the Gluten-free kitchen and used her One Egg Mayo recipe as a reference.

I only tweaked it a little bit.  Feel free to adjust the recipe to your taste.

Ingredients:

1 whole egg (yes 1 egg, not just the yolk - I never know what to do with…
