Hello and welcome to The Cooking Wardrobe. After a few too many wardrobe posts, I am well overdue for a cooking one and what better way to do it than with a sweet one. These nutmeg cookies are always a hit with the boys. They are very easy to make, very yummy and best of all they are home made. A cup of tea and one of these will take your mind to so many happy places you would not believe it.
Here's how I made them.
|Preheat oven to 180c fan forced|
4 cups plain flour, 2 tsp baking powder, 1 medium sized nutmeg, 2 eggs, 1 tbs vanilla bean extract, 1 tbs golden syrup, 250gms salt reduced butter (room temperature), 11/2 cups brown sugar
|Using a cake mixer, cream butter and sugar till sugar is completely dissolved (takes about 10 minutes)|
|Then add eggs|
|then beat for a further five minutes to combine|
|Sift flour and baking powder|
|Add to butter mixture and beat to combine|
|Spoon mixture unto a cling wrap and wrap tightly to form a log|
|Refrigerate for 1 hour|
|cut cookie dough and roll into balls|
|assemble on baking tray and use a fork to press each ball down on the baking tray and bake for 20 minutes, take them out of the oven and allow to cool in the tray for 15 minutes.|
|They come out soft in the middle and all nice and golden outside. Try it, your taste buds will thank you for the favor. Enjoy!!!!|
