Today is my nephew’s birthday, and what the birthday boy wants is not a cake (he doesn’t like any kind if icing), so he asks for cookies. I don’t know what to make so last night I give him sometimes with my books, and he show me this one “chocolate chip sand cookies”. I start early in the morning so I want to finish it before he wake up, and yes by freezing the dough the time is much shorter (1 hour in the freezer or 5 in the refrigerator). The result is sweet, crunchy cookie and what the birthday boy says, he loves it, and I’m happy. Sift the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt onto a sheet of waxed paper. Cream the butter in the large bowl of electric mixer on moderate speed for 3 minutes. With the mixer on moderate speed, beat in the oil in a thin, steady stream mixture.

Chocolate Chip Sand Cookies Easy To Make

Add the superfine sugar and beat for 2 minutes on moderate speed. Add the confectioners’ sugar and beat for 2 minutes longer. Blend in the egg yolks and vanilla extract. The mixture will look lightly creamy. On low speed, blend in half of the sifted ingredients. Mix in the chocolate chips. Blend in the other half of the sifted ingredients mix until the flour particles are absorbed. Scrape the dough onto a baking pan lined with plastic wrap, press into a flat cake, cover, and refrigerate for about 5 hours, or until firm enough to shape without sticking. Or, freeze the dough for about 1 hour, or until firm (as I do). Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C) in advance of rolling the cookies. Line several cookie sheets with parchment paper. Take up heaping 2-tablespoon of dough and roll them into balls. Gently roll the balls in the granulated sugar to coat lightly. Place the dough balls 2 to 2½ inches apart on the prepared pans. Flatten each cookie lightly and evenly with the tines of a fork, dipping the fork in a little granulated sugar to keep it from sticking to the dough. Bake the cookies for 15 to 16 minutes, or until set and golden, rotate the pans halfway through baking. Let the cookies stand on the pans for 2 minutes, then transfer them to cooling racks, using a wide offset metal spatula.

Additionally, because the pizza oven should be between 750 and 900-degrees Fahrenheit, which is significantly warmer than a conventional oven, wood-fire ovens have an overall faster cooking time than conventional ovens. In a wood-fire oven, a home-made pizza should only take between 10-15 minutes. There are certain techniques used to light a wood-fire pizza oven. Avoid using any type of paper, since the ash from the paper can blow around the oven. Always use log wood and kindling. The best kind of wood to use is either oak, maple, ash, beech, or birch; however, oak is probably the safest, easiest to find, and hottest-burning in comparison to other woods. Do not use any form of accelerants such as petrol, kerosene, or paraffin as this can be extremely dangerous. A common mistake when making a wood-fired pizza is placing the pizza into the oven when the oven is not hot enough.

A blazing-hot oven creates the charred and crispy crust most guests love. The most effective way to start a fire with sufficient heat is to use a stack of chimney starter and stack two logs on top. A fire should build up within a couple of minutes of lighting, which will give you enough heat to make several pizzas. Another important aspect of making the perfect wood-fired pizza is, of course, the dough! Whether store-bought or homemade, making sure you’re giving your dough enough time to properly rise before cooking will ensure the perfect texture of crust for your crispy, fire-smoked pizza. One expert tip, when it comes to preparing your pie for a wood-fire oven, is to build your pizza directly on a pizza peel. A pizza peel is used by bakers to slide large items like loaves of bread, pizzas, pastries, and other baked goods in and out of an oven. By building your pizza directly on the peel, there is no clumsy transfer or loss of toppings when transferring the pizza from the cutting board to the pizza peel.
