Life is finally slowing down – School holidays are just around the corner and I am desperate to get back into my hobbies.
Last Sunday I ran a fun run which is quite popular in town, I managed to time 12km in an hour and 8 minutes!
For a first marathon, I’m damn pleased.
I’ve only just regained full motion from my muscles without pains though 😛
So Nicholas and I were wondering what to do with a packet of Oreos and some left over Tim Tams – and I had a brainwave.
What about covering them with cookie dough and baking them….
I think I should have had an animated light bulb above my head.
It’s not an original idea, it has been all over Tumblr, but it was definitely worth playing around with!
Try experimenting with changing the ‘surprise’ inside the cookie!
On wards to delicious goodness:
I love ice-cream cookie sandwiches, if I could have them everyday I would, but the small matter of gaining weight would probably kill the buzz for me 😦
There is something about the cold, creamy texture of vanilla ice-cream mingled with crunchy, chewy chocolate cookie that makes these priceless.
So for an indulgent treat, 286 calories isn’t all that bad….
These cookies have inspired me to experiment with different flavor combinations, I’ll be uploading more soon 🙂
Dark Chocolate & Candied Orange Ice-Cream Cookie Sandwich
Take one cookie, and then sprinkle with shaved chocolate.
Scoop ice-cream, place on top of the cookie.
Take the candied orange and arrange on top of the ice-cream, shave more chocolate.
Place the cookie on top of the ice-cream, shave dark chocolate and serve.
*I was unable to have the nutritional information without using the nutritional information for 12 cookies, so please note the recipe above is for one serving. So the recipe above contains only 286 calories 🙂
*I will be uploading my candied peel recipes in the near future.
Preheat oven to 170C.
Cream the butter and brown sugar till light and fluffy.
Switching to a wooden spoon, whip in egg white and vanilla till well combined.
Sift cocoa powder and plain flour, and then stir thoroughly.
Fold in the vanilla paste, coconut and diced candied orange peel.
Roll and place 12 cookies, evenly spaced (these cookies do spread when baked). Bake for approximately 12 minutes (These cookies will appear undercooked, leave to cool and they will harden and become chewy.)
