Re: COOKIES ANONYMOUS

In response to the Copha questions away, way back on page 10 of this thread (Chocolate Pretzels recipe), Copha isn't generally easily available outside Australia. It's 100% pure hydrogenated coconut fat :-D Good stuff! Entire generations of Australians have been brought up on it! I went hunting once to see if I could find a UK equivalent but the closest suggestion I could find was to buy a tin of coconut milk/cream, let it sit for a while (not sure how long - until the water separates from the fat), then drain off the water and use the remaining creamy solidy bit. I don't think butter would be an appropriate substitute because you'd lose the coconutty flavour. Hope this helps someone!

well now, I think we have an absent-minded spambot, who forgets to post links with their repeating sentence.

Self-raising.

Self-raising flour?  Would it be the same as the all-purpose flour, or is it something else?

Re: COOKIES ANONYMOUS

Self raising is all purpose flour with baking powder added.  To make your own just add 2 tsp of baking powder to each cup of flour.

These are suitable for vegans, but most people seem to love them!

75g/3oz/half cup dried dates
75g walnuts, finely chopped
3 medium bananas, mashed
175g/6oz/2 cups oats
150ml/quarter pint/ half cup olive or sunflower oil
1 tsp vanilla essence

Mix everything together really well and put tablespoons of the mixture onto an oiled baking sheet. Flatten them down a bit and bake for about 20 minutes, until golden.

Re: COOKIES ANONYMOUS

Welcome to the forums, Juanjleslie. Making cookies is generally easy and satisfying.
There are all kinds and if you've got kids in the house, it's a great way to introduce them to baking as it's tasty fun.

Re: COOKIES ANONYMOUS

Hi Juanjleslie,  and welcome to the forum from me too. 

I agree with Eddie, baking with kids is great, in fact my children never had playdoh.  If they wanted to do something like that, I'd make a batch of cookie dough (often with their help ), they'd play with it for a while, then eat the end results, though I always kept some dough back so we would have some uncontaminated cookies to eat  lol  lol
