Note: 選擇中型的蘋果比較適合一人一個吃的大小。烤好的蘋果要不要馬上吃,太燙,要等涼一下再放冰淇淋。用泡過蘭姆酒(Rum) 的葡萄乾會更香哦!

海苔紫米糕 Seaweed Purple Rice Cake

海苔紫米糕 Seaweed Purple Rice Cake

Note:
1. 黑糯米又叫作紫糯米或紫米。沒有白糯米那麼黏。黑糯米含豐富維他命和礦物質並有健脾暖肝、明目活血的功能。Black glutinous rice is also called purple glutinous rice or purple rice. Not as sticky as white glutinous rice. Black glutinous rice is rich in vitamins and minerals, and has many benefits for liver, spleen, eyesight and blood circulation.
2. 想要口感硬一點的可以用在來米粉代替地瓜粉。做好的米糕塊,先用一點油在鍋裡煎一煎外皮,還可以來做成三杯米糕哦!Use regular rice flour (non-sticky) instead of sweet potato flour for a little harder taste.

Alfajores Cookies 阿根廷夾心酥

Alfajores Cookies 阿根廷夾心酥

Ingredients

Makes 20 cookies

  • 1 cup cornstarch 太白粉
  • 1 cup flour 麵粉
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder 泡打粉
  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter 無鹽奶油
  • 3/4 cup sugar 糖
  • 2 egg yolks 蛋黃
  • 1 cup Dulce de leche (filling) 煉乳焦糖

Directions

Sift the cornstarch, flour and baking powder together in a medium bowl. In a mixer bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the egg yolks, beating until they are incorporated.

Reduce the mixer speed to low and add the flour mixture in 3 batches, allowing each batch to become incorporated before adding the next.

Form the dough into a disc without handling it too much. Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Remove the dough to a lightly floured work surface and roll out to about 1/8-inch thick. Cut out 40 2-inch rounds, and carefully place the rounds on two lightly greased cookie sheets.

Bake for 9 to 10 minutes, but not so long that they begin to brown. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes. Then remove the cookies to wire racks and cool completely.

Spread about 2 teaspoons of dulce de leche on the flat half of a cookie and cover it with the flat half of another cookie to form a sandwich. Repeat with the remaining cookies. If desired, sprinkle the finished cookies with powdered sugar.

Dulce de Leche– CAN METHOD
