Eggless Double Chocolate Cookies

I sincerely believe that there should not be just one day to celebrate Love but the hype that is created around February 14th makes it really hard for me to treat it as just another day! Suddenly, red and pink roses pop out of nowhere, reserving a table even at your regular lunch/dinner place either becomes impossible or it comes with a big cover charge or both! The radio station starts playing all romantic numbers, the pizza company doesn’t guarantee on-time delivery.. In fact, look at us, even we had to succumb to the pressure of having a special menu just to keep ourselves in the context!  🙂

Valentine’s Day , sadly, has not been included in the Holiday Calendar as yet ! Those who are still in school/ college make sure that they step out of their homes on pretext of attending “the most important class/ quiz” but for those who have to attend office,unfortunately, there are not many excuses possible to take leave from their bosses.. Ask us why? Because  those who are “apparently” single, do not wish to give their bosses any food for thought, and those who are legally committed do not want to sound cheesy or distracted!

This is the last weekend before February the 14th, since most of us would be working on that day, we thought we might share a recipe that gives you an opportunity to prepare a surprise for you loved one, well in advance. Something that you can store and can relish any time. Something that every one likes like ummmmmmmmmmm… Cookies! We have posted Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe earlier, but this one is a little variation since it does not use eggs. We are making Double Chocolate Cookies that uses both Cocoa and Choco Chips!

Cookie Ingredients

Yes, we will use all these unconventional ingredients in our cookies. While jaggery has been used to substitute Brown Sugar ( though we still recommend brown sugar over jaggery),  flax seeds powder have been used to replace eggs. The mix nuts powder that we have used here are ground almonds and cashews. The natural flavor and oils from this nut helps giving the cookies an added crunch! Moving forward:

Cookie Recipe

Our cookie dough became a little sticky since the butter melts in the kneading process. To cope with that, we put the dough in the refrigerator for 20 mins ..the butter hardens and makes the dough manageable. You should also put the left over dough in the fridge in between baking batches.

Cookie Dough

We made big wide rolls of cookie dough for baking. You may choose the size to your liking but keep them at some distance on the baking tray as the dough expands as it bakes. Flatten the dough with your hand if you want crisp thin cookies. Here, we tried making gooey cookies by making thick dough rolls.

Baked Cookies

Cookie with  chocochips!

Tip:

It’s important to carefully transfer the cookies on cooling rack or else they would crumble . Fresh baked cookies are very soft and they  get harder as they cool. If you wish to get cookies in any particular shape this is the best time to get your cookie cutter handy!  Cut the cookies gently using cutter of your desired shape and size right after you take them out of the oven.

Going by the theme, we cut this cookie using heart-shaped cutter and dipped it in molten chocolate! You can write your message using icing cones/ icing pens   ( You may even request your local baker to do this for you 🙂 )

Cookie Heart

These cookies can be decorated in many ways – use candies, gems, icing cones etc. to send your message across. If you are planning to take your relationship to next level and propose, create a small slit in the cookie while it’s still soft to place your proposal ring! We are sure she would be thrilled!  { There is a good possibility of her being more thrilled seeing the cookie ( since you baked it) than the ring! :P}

Cookie Jar

Store the cookies in an airtight container. I especially painted this Cookie Jar to suit the occasion. Yellow is one of Ashim’s favorite colors and even I wanted something bright and happy for my kitchen top!  I painted the steel -rusted-glass jar cap with yellow acrylic color and made some polka dots using my nail paint. The red felt fabric bow helped in balancing the whole arrangement and even looks like a jar knob handle. This is the time when you let your creative juices flow.

Cookie Jar

We hope you enjoy trying this recipe.  We shall soon come up with something savory for your palette.

Till then,

Take care and Happy Weekend 🙂
