CHOCOLATE DIPPED TAHINI COOKIES (VEGAN, GLUTEN FREE) - Will Frolic for Food. RECIPE + PHOTOS UPDATED 1/1/2016 You know how, when you’re vegan, you scarf everything even remotely creamy if it’s within 25 feet of you? That’s how tahini and I became bffs. We’ve been on a break for a while — since I started eat eggies and goat cheese again — but I recently had a hankering for a just-tahini-and-me hang out once more. I crave bitter, complex flavors in the winter. It’s all of the slate gray sky, crunchy frozen earth, and cast-off orange peels I’ve been surrounded by lately, I’m sure. These cookies go heavy on the tahini, so the cookies see-saw between bitter and sweet. I dunked em in chocolate to add some interest (and because everything should be dunked in chocolate, naturally).

I made a cookie sandwich with some of the vegan coconut dulce de leche I made a while back. This recipe was updated on 1/1/2016. Prep Time: 5m Cook Time: 10m Total Time: 15m Yield: ~1 dozen cookies Ingredients Chocolate Dip 3 ounces chopped dark chocolate 1 tablespoon virgin coconut oil.

Flo Braker's Pains d'Amande. Every week, Food52's Senior Editor Kristen Miglore is unearthing recipes that are nothing short of genius. Today: A cookie for all your gifting, swapping, and impressing needs this holiday season. - Kristen Do you wish you were the sort of person who kept a tidy, well-planned cache of cookie dough in your freezer, instead of things like near-empty pints of ice cream and fossilized bananas that may, but most likely will not, become banana bread?

This is your chance! (Or if you're already that person, smile smugly to yourself and add this recipe to your file.) These crisp almond wafers could not be easier to make, or exude more fanciness. Braker considers this her signature cookie, and has tested and refined all chances of failure right out of it. This is all you have to do: You gently melt together raw sugar, butter, water and cinnamon, leaving some of the sugar crunchy, then add sliced almonds and flour.

I don't get the fuss about mangoes. I never have. I have this vague feeling like I'm missing out by not getting on this band wagon that has pretty much everyone else I know; and they're all frolicking about, having a blast in their mango-induced euphoria. I felt the same pang again, when several of weeks ago a friend ended an email with 'I hope you're enjoying the mango season!

'. The truth is, I hadn't eaten a single mango this season until that conscience-pricking email, and to rid myself of food-blogger guilt (that must be a thing?) , I decided to give the fruit another chance. Hold on, don't stop reading yet- this story has a happy ending. Notes: Although we refer to it as a mango puree, the consistency most closely resembles a jam- sticky, and viscous.Don't be a ninja about getting even swirls into the meringue- it's supposed to look rustic. Citrus-Thyme Macaroons Recipe on Food52. Lime Cornmeal Biscotti Recipe on Food52. In the Kitchen With: Y. Lee’s Matcha Madeleines. I have been following pastry cook and baker-for-hire, Y. Lee, for quite a few years. Her baking has always attracted me, and since her move to Instagram, where she uses the name Lemonpi, I have been able to follow what she eats on her faraway travels as well as her world-class meals at home in Sydney.

Every couple of days she posts a photo of something delicious-looking for which I’d love to have a recipe, so when she published these Matcha Madeleines, I seized the opportunity to share with our readers. In her original post, she used a shell madeleine pan, but a regular madeleine pan works just as well. The intensity of the glaze color will depend on the type of tea you use. Y’s glaze is similar to the color of the madeleine cake.

Why Y likes this recipe: I’m a sucker for all things matcha and green tea-related because I like that grassy, slightly bitter flavor and the vibrant green color. Matcha Madeleines The batter must chill overnight, so remember to start one day ahead. 1. 2. Notes: Cinnamon and Rye Shortbread recipe on Black Sesame Polvorones (Shortbread Cookies) and Spring Break. Polvorones are crumbly cookies found across Latin America, Spain and The Philippines. Some of you may know polvorones as Mexican wedding cookies. Those that are not familiar with the cookies think of them as a relative of shortbread cookies. Typically polvorones are made using flour, a fat like butter or even lard, sugar, sometimes milk, and ground nuts.

Depending on the country they can be made using ground pecans, walnuts or even cashew nuts. Sometimes the polvorones are also coated in powdered sugar. Like many foods depending on the region and family the cookies can take on a different look. The commonality between them is that they are buttery, sweet and melt in your mouth.

These polvorones you see before you are a Mexican-Asian fusion version. Growing up I remember polvorones being one of my mami’s (mom) favorite cookies. When I make polvorones I like tricking my brain. Let’s get baking. 1. Bake in center of oven for 8-10 minutes. See how quick and easy that was?
