Assorted Cookies Hack

How to make assorted cookies using one base recipe and turning it into a variation of 3 doughs from one. This one features: Chocolate, Nutmeg, and Jamun Jam.

 

Base Cookie Dough:
(makes: 18-20 cookies, depending on the size you make them in!)

  • 1/3 cup oil/softened butter (You can use both as long as the total amount of both when added is 1/3 cup)
  • 2/3 cup sugar, powdered
  • 1 egg at room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1 cup all purpose flour + another 1/2 cup to adjust the dough consistency
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder

Directions:

  • Cream the butter and sugar by whisking them. Add the egg and vanilla essence. Mix till well incorporated.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the 1 cup flour and baking powder.
  • Add the flour mixture to the wet mixture, form a dough.
  • If it’s too sticky and sludgy, add some from the 1/2 cup flour reserved for this purpose. You’re looking for a slightly wet and sticky dough.
  • Baking temperature and time: 15-20 mins at 200ºC on a parchment paper lined baking tray, or one lightly oiled then floured.

VARIATIONS.

Divide the cookie dough into three equal portions.

For Chocolate Cookies:

Add 1 1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder and knead it into the dough till it’s well combined. You can add chopped chocolate chunks or chips to it. Done.

For Nutmeg Cookies:

Add 1/4 teaspoon of grated nutmeg. Knead! Done.

For Jamun Jam Cookies:

Roll your dough into 1″ balls. Lightly flatten down on your prepared baking tray. Keep them  1.5″ apart. Press the center of each a bit. Place your required amount of jam, press the jam down gently with the back of the spoon. Done.
