Cookie-pinecones

 

Necessary ingredients:

  • 100g of softened butter
  • 3 tbsp. vegetable oil

Step-by-step cooking recipe:

  • 1. In a bowl, mix butter, powdered sugar and salt until smooth.
  • 2. Add oil, egg and mix well.
  • 3. The next step is to add cocoa and mix again.
  • 4. Sift 2/3 of all flour together with baking powder into the resulting mass, and then mix again.
  • 5. Gradually add the remaining flour, because you may need a little less or, on the contrary, more. The dough should be soft, hold its shape and not stick to your hands.

Tip: if the dough crumbles, then too much flour has been added. To fix it, you need to add 1 tsp. water until you get the required consistency.

  • 6. Put the dough in cling film or a bag and leave it for 20 minutes in the refrigerator.
  • 7. Turn on the oven and heat it up to 180 degrees.
  • 8. Separate small pieces of dough and give them an oval shape. Then make diagonal cuts in two directions with a knife. Thus, our cookies will look like a real pinecone.
  • 9. Put the cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment and send to the oven for about 15 minutes.
  • 10. Hold the cookies in a vertical position, sprinkle with powdered sugar, this way you will get real winter cones.

Tip: another option for serving cookies, this will connect two pinecones with the help of a filling. It can be jam, chocolate paste or your favorite ice cream.

Cookie-pinecones green

 

Necessary ingredients:

  • 20g of mint (wash and dry)
  • 90g of butter at room temperature
  • 3 tbsp. sugar

  • 1. Grind mint together with sugar in a bowl using a mixer.

Note: mint can be replaced with spinach or matcha tea.

  • 2. Add butter, egg to mint and sugar and mix with a blender.
  • 3. Next, no more than half of the total amount of flour is sifted together with baking powder. Stir well.
  • 4. Next, add the remaining flour until we get a soft and tender dough. It should not stick to your hands.

Tip: if you added all the flour, but the dough still sticks to your hands, you can add one teaspoon of flour at a time, kneading the necessary consistency. But remember - dough should not be hard.

  • 5. Put the dough in a bag or cling film and send it to the refrigerator for 10–15 minutes.
  • 6. Turn on the oven to heat up. The required temperature is 180 degrees.
  • 7. Separate a little dough and give it an elongated oval shape, slightly narrowed on one side. Make diagonal notches in two directions with the non-sharp side of the knife. Thus, our cookies will look like a real pinecone.
  • 8. Place the cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment and bake for 10–15 minutes.
  • 9. Hold the cookies in a vertical position, sprinkle with powdered sugar, so you will get real winter pinecones.
