Tried and tasted by Nivedita
At last, today was the day for my OTG to put into the test. I was searching for the easiest recipe, which my kids also should enjoy.
As on my friends voting for Cookies I thought of trying these cookies. Here is my tale of baking the cookies.
I decided to follow the simple recipe which was given in the book with my OTG. But I got a very good and easy recipe from HERE. Thanks to Deepa for sharing so easy recipe.
I am giving the recipe too, as I reduced the quantity to half.
All Purpose Flour - 1 cup
Sugar - 1/2 cup
Unsalted butter - 1/4 cup
Coco powder - 1/6 cup
White chocolate or milk chocolate -1, cut into small pieces
Baking Powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Milk - 2 tbsp
(I skipped the black coffee as I did not had it)
The cups and spoons I used to measure
Grease the baking tray.
I did not preheat the oven as I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT MEANS AND HOW TO PREHEAT WITH WHAT OPTIONS ON.
Sieve the APF, Coco powder, baking power and salt in a big vessel.
Beat the egg, butter and sugar till creamy and fluffy.
Add the sieved flour to this and mix well.
Add milk and knead like a soft dough.
Divide the dough in to lemon size balls. Press the balls to make round cookies shape.
Spread the cookies on baking tray.
Keep it in the middle rack.
Bake it on 180 degree C(350 degrees F) for 10 minutes.
First batch, I kept for 20 minutes (as it was written in the book)
But When I saw the cookies were getting burnt, I was helpless. I was not sure whether to take the timer knob to zero or not.
These are my burnt cookies. The upper part was too good and was crispy. I GRATED THE BURNT SIDE TO REMOVE THE BLACK PART.
I could not count how many I made as my daughters went on eating!!
I am happy that I started baking and succeeded in it.
PLEASE GUIDE ME FOR GOOD BAKING,
What is Preheating means? What is the temperature, how much time to keep.
Can I off the OTG in the middle?
Can I bring the timer knob to zero If the food is getting burnt?
I hope to get more answers from you all!
Hey, I am the proud owner of this new OTG and promise to maintain it for many years.
