Mocha Crinkles #CulinaryCam #Sponsored

The last time I stopped in at The Quail & Olive*, I picked up a bottle of their Butter Flavor Olive Oil because I was interested in trying the oil in some holiday baking. I don't know about you, but as soon as Halloween is over, my brain goes into overdrive on what kind of holiday cookies to bake. 

Before I get to the recipe, I want to share a little bit about this oil because it's delicious and saves a step of having to melt butter for baking cookies.

This oil is vegetarian and dairy-free, but it smells just like melted butter! So, I swapped it in for melted butter in my mocha crinkles. Actually I swapped it in for any recipe that called for melted butter in the cookie recipe this weekend, so you'll be seeing several more cookie recipes that use this. 

We have also filmed a clip of this recipe. It's also available on our Culinary Cam YouTube channel, here

Ingredients makes approximately 3 dozen cookies
  • 3/4 cup organic dark brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1/2 cup organic granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil (I used Butter Flavor Olive Oil)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon pure coffee extract (you can substitute coffee liqueur if you prefer or just use more vanilla extract)
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 Tablespoon instant coffee
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup organic granulated sugar (for coating)
  • 1/2 cup organic powdered sugar (for coating)
  • Also needed: baking sheets, parchment paper or silicone mat, cookie scoop (optional)

Procedure

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line baking sheet with silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Place 1/2 cup granulated sugar in one bowl and 1/2 cup powdered sugar in another bowl for coating.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together sugars, olive oil, eggs, vanilla extract, and coffee extract. Mix until smooth. Fold in cocoa powder, instant coffee, flour, and baking powder until just moistened.

Use a scoop to form balls or roll tablespoon-sized pieces of dough into balls. Roll each ball, first, in granulated sugar and, then, in powdered sugar until nicely coated.


Place cookies on prepared baking sheets. Place in the oven and bake for 13 to 15 minutes. The cookies should be slightly soft to the touch; they will harden as they cool.


Let cool on sheets for 5 minutes. Then transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Serve with a strong coffee or espresso.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
