Sourdough Cookies

Thursday, December 20, 2012

It's the holiday season, which means that cookies are plentiful everywhere you turn. We were so excited to show you guys that your starter can make one heck of a cookie. The possibilities were endless and we hope you got a lot of joy from sharing your sourdough cookies with your friends!

Marisa M. made these amazing Peanut Butter cookies, using this recipe.  

Please check out all of the amazing and delicious cookies that were made this month: 

Maybe you'll find your new favorite among the delicious variations made this month. And who knows - maybe Santa will find some sourdough cookies waiting for him with that glass of milk this year!

Basic Sourdough Cookies (recipe from The Gingered Whisk)
1 cup butter, melted
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 cup sourdough starter, 100% hydration
1 tsp Vanilla
3 cups flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp  baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup toasted chopped walnuts (or other nut of your choice)
6 ounces chip (chocolate, white chocolate, butterscotch, whichever suits your fancy)
1 cup dried fruit (Cherries, cranberries, whatever you have...)

Preheat oven to 400 degree.
In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
In the bowl of your electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugars.
Turn the mixer off, and with a wooden spoon gently mix in your starter until combined.
Add the egg (you can turn your mixer back on now) and the vanilla.
Slowly add the flour mixture into the mixer, until just combined.
Fold in your nuts, chips and fruit.
Place by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet and bake 10-12 minutes, or until starting to turn golden brown around the edges

I though adding sourdough starter to cookie dough was a great addition! said...

I would love to put the little bit of html into my blog to link back here, but I keep trying and it isn' working. I have a wordpress blog and as near as I can tell, it isn't allowed. I did put just a regular link back.

Meditations - That's ok! I know wordpress is sometimes finiky about the link tools. Someday we will actually pay for one that can be used on Wordpress... haha. But the regular link back is great, and as long as you add yourself into the linky on this blog, so we know you made them, that works for us! :)
