Chocolate Crinkle Cookies | Christmas Holiday Cookies

There are lots of Christmas events happening around us. This year I am baking more cookies for several reasons, one main reason is homemade cookie exchange among Teachers happening at my daughter class this week☺. So among few cookies that I have baked, the crinkle cookies is one among it. These cookies are so chocolaty and unlike other baking these has to be out from the oven when the center looks little raw and soft. That's how it will become soft and not dried so much when it cooled completely.

Black Forest Buns

Today's recipe is soft, pillow like Black Forest Buns stuffed/rolled with chocolate sponge cake and cherry/jam. Black Forest cake is all about chocolate cake, cherry compote and kirsch (cherry brandy) and loads of cream. These buns use chocolate cake and cherry compote. Black Forest Buns obviously use cherry and if you don’t have that, you can always substitute with strawberry jam/ compote. The method of kneading, rolling out the dough, covering it with the filling, and then rolling it back is just like making cinnamon rolls, I have shared a You tube video

Checker Board Cake with Chocolate n Yellow Cakes

I prepared this checker board first time for the neighbor aunty who returned back last month to her homeland after 6 months of vacation. She loves cake so I planned this checker board cake. I don’t hv special checker board cake pans or round cookies cutters. I searched in google, youtube n finally landed here. I decided to give a try by cutting the baked goodies using knife or bowl. Then I started baking with fun n ended up with cute cake. Yup I messed 1 layer, as the cake were so soft while cutting they broke at some places n somehow managed it J. Wow the final outcome was just amazing; really it was beyond my expectation. The fun continued again as I made the same cake for hubby’s colleagues. This time the checker board was so perfect, only I clicked the whole cake that too early morning before he starts to office, so got dull picturesL. They all liked the cake very much, I asked to click the cake slices, so my H clicked in mobile and the pics were not clear L. This month for baking partners challenge I got mail to make Neapolitan/nuts cake/plum cake. I don’t want to make a 3rd cake in a very short time so I asked Swathi the master brain, whether I can post this recipe, immd she said ok, thanks Swathi for agreeing n giving such a wonderful task. Also I thank Suja n Archana for your suggestions. After spending lot of time in making a perfect treat, I am here with well detailed recipe for you...Guys I assure this as a fool proof recipe n give ur try…
