Blogging Marathon# 36: Week 1/ Day 1
Dish: Fruit & Nut Cookies (Pistachio-Cranberry Cookies)
Here’s Wishing everyone a very Happy, healthy & prosperous New Year 2014.
Our blogging marathon group is back again in the new year with BM# 36. To start the new year on a sweet note, I’m making some cookies for the first week of the marathon. I wanted to post a savory cookie too, but posted this baked mathri last week/ year itself.
I made 3 types of cookies and this eggless fruit cake to give as edible gifts this Christmas season. Last few years the cookies I made for Christmas had eggs in them and it didn’t bother me. But this year I was baking for family who don’t eat eggs and I had to find eggless cookie recipes or at least recipes that had only 1~2 eggs, so I can easily replace them egg replacer.
So for the first day, I have these Fruit & Nut cookies that are basically shortbread cookies with some dry fruit and nuts added. I already have these fruit & nut cookies and these pistachio sandwich cookies that are made almost the similar way.
What’s great about these cookies is that once you make the dough and freeze it, then you can cookies at moments notice. Also the dough comes together in no time and is very easy to work with. Just make sure to leave the butter out for couple of hours to get it nice and soft.
