  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and sugar.

If you don’t tell people these cookies are gluten-free and vegan, they’ll never know, says chef Ryan Scott, owner of Ryan Scott 2Go Catering in San Francisco. Scott recently featured the cookies on “The Today Show,” along with a recipe for his Spicy Taco Salmon. Both recipes are featured in his new collection, “The No-Fuss Family Cookbook: Simple Recipes for Everyday Life” (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $ 30).

The cookies, which are made with coconut oil instead of butter, are a perfect sweet treat for vegan dads this Father’s Day. And if you don’t need the cookies to be gluten-free, you can use regular all-purpose flour.

2⁄3 cup coconut oil, at room temperature but solid, not liquid

2⁄3 cup lightly packed brown sugar

Chef’s Notes

If you don’t tell people these cookies are gluten free and vegan, they’ll never know. I love leaving a bunch of them on the counter for the girls to use when I have to go on a work trip. This is my “so sorry to be gone but scarf on it and you will forgive me” plan, and it hasn’t failed me yet!

Technical tip: When measuring cocoa powder, be sure to put the cocoa in the measuring cup before leveling it with a spatula. Scooping up the cocoa with the measuring cup will result in too much cocoa for this recipe.

Exchange option: If you don’t need them to be gluten-free, use regular all-purpose flour.

Preperation

1.

Preheat oven to 350 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

2.

In a medium bowl using an electric mixer, cream the coconut oil, brown sugar and granulated sugar until fluffy, 3-4 minutes. Add the almond milk and mix on medium speed until completely incorporated. Scrape down sides of bowl and mix for 1 minute more. Add the flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Mix on low speed until all the ingredients are incorporated and well combined. Add 1 ½ cups of the chocolate pieces and mix by hand until they are evenly distributed.

3.

Place 2 tablespoon mounds of dough on prepared baking sheets, spacing cookies at least 2 inches apart. Press remaining chocolate pieces onto top of cookie dough balls and sprinkle a small pinch of flaky sea salt on each. Bake for 9 minutes. When you gently touch the center of a cookie, it should be soft and not roll back, but it will not be runny or shaky.

4.

Let cool completely on the mussels. Store in an airtight container or zippered bag at room temperature for up to 5 days.

I love to receive comments from readers – good or bad – on my column. I recently received an email which I particularly appreciated …

“I like to read your columns and your memories of the smells and tastes of your past. Last week you gave a recipe for chocolate cut cookies [April 21, 2021]. Well I made it today with a few modifications to your original recipe and the result was pretty cool so I thought I would share.

I halved the recipe because there are no small hands in the immediate vicinity to reach the cookie jar, only large hands should stay away. It does not matter. Then I did what you advised not to do – I used 1/2 cup of unsalted melted butter in place of the shortening. I omitted the ground cloves, but added a few teaspoons of the espresso powder. This stuff is more expensive than gold, but a little goes a long way and since I don’t make tiramisu it goes even longer. Finally, I added a fair amount of espresso crisps to the batter and, for good measure, to my mouth as well. I didn’t refrigerate the dough, but did drop cookies – nice heavy tablespoons on an ungreased cookie sheet and baked them for about 19 minutes at 350 degrees. The result was a delicious batch of adult cookies to accompany a cup of coffee – you can never have too much coffee – well, you actually can.

I also made the olive oil cake recipe on the same page as your cookie recipe, but I haven’t tasted it yet so I can’t comment on it.

Be well, healthy and at peace and your recipes are coming.

This is the original recipe, just in case you missed it last time … but after trying Mary Jane’s version, I might never use it again!

GREG PATENT for Lee Montana newspapers

I’ve been in a chocolate mood lately: chocolate cake, chocolate brownies, chocolate lollipops, chocolate ice cream and, of course, hot chocolate to keep me warm on those freezing winter nights.

Years ago, when I was busy researching and collecting recipes for my cookbook, “A Baker’s Odyssey” (Wiley, 2007), second-generation Italian-American Catherine Cavallaro Goodman told me. featured a few Italian cookie recipes that she thinks might work. in my book.

One of the recipes, Roman Chocolate Cookies, immediately caught my eye because it contains olive oil. I made a lot of cakes with olive oil, and seeing it in a cookie intrigued me. Catherine told me that she learned to cook from her mother and aunts and their sweet recipes often contain olive oil.

This particular cookie tastes similar to gingerbread as it is spiced with a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. It’s as sweet as gingerbread. The cookie itself is not that sweet. Only 1/2 cup of sugar goes in 36 cookies. The frosting adds just the right amount of added sweetness.

People also read …

The chocolate comes from unsweetened cocoa powder and semisweet chocolate chunks, the latter being an addition from Catherine.

Roman chocolate cookies are quite easy to prepare, and the recipe is a bit unusual in its method. You start by beating the eggs until they are quite frothy. This step prepares them for the sugar, which you incorporate well and continue beating for a few minutes until the eggs have thickened and are almost white. Then you pour a drizzle of olive oil very slowly, as if you were making mayonnaise. After that, add milk and vanilla, then stir in the dry ingredients with a wooden spoon to get a very thick paste.

After a 30-minute break in the covered mixing bowl, you shape the cookies into small balls by rolling chunks of dough between your palms. The olive oil in the dough keeps the cookies from sticking to your hands.

This is a wonderful recipe to make with the kids. They can help shape dough, frost cookies, and sprinkle decorations.

Catherine says this recipe is a Christmas treat, but she and I bake these cookies whenever the impulse strikes because they are so delicious. Good pastry!

Roman Chocolate Cookies

I don’t know what makes these chocolate nut cookies spicy and not too sweet romans, but I love them! Catherine Cavallaro Goodman learned how to bake cookies from her Aunt Marie, and over the years Catherine has tweaked the recipe slightly. His most recent change is the addition of mini chocolate chips to the dough, a thumbs up to the chocolate lovers in his family. But Catherine says you can add chopped dried cherries (certainly American) or finely chopped citron (Italian) in place of the chocolate.

I always add chocolate chips, mini or regular. These cookies are best when they are fresh.

2 cups plus 2 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour (300 grams; measure by stirring the flour in its container, dipping it into a dry 1-cup measure, filling until overflowing without shaking cup and brushing off the excess with a straight edge; repeat for the second cup and do the same with a tablespoon)

1/2 cup drained unsweetened cocoa powder (48 grams)

2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/2 cup walnuts or pecans, medium fine chopped

1 cup mini or regular semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 1/4 cups icing sugar (filtered if it is lumpy)

1 1/2 tablespoons of soft butter

2 tablespoons of milk, more if needed

Colorful sprinkles and chocolate jimmies

1. In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. It takes longer than you might think; stir with the whisk for 1 full minute. In another medium bowl, beat the eggs with an electric hand mixer or a stand mixer with the whisk on medium to medium-high speed for 1 to 2 minutes, until the eggs are filled with small bubbles. . Continue beating and gradually sprinkle with caster sugar. Beat until eggs thicken slightly and turn whitish, 2 to 3 minutes more.

2. Scrape the bowl. While beating at medium speed, slowly drizzle with a drizzle of olive oil. It may take 2 minutes; it’s like making mayonnaise. At low speed, add the milk and vanilla.

3. Using a wooden spoon, add the dry ingredients in two batches, stirring until smooth after each; then stir in the nuts and chocolate chips. The dough will be very thick and keep its shape in the spoon and be a bit sticky. Cover the bowl loosely with a tea towel and let the dough rest for 30 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, adjust an oven rack to the center position and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line two 14 x 17-inch thick cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone liner. (If you only have one cookie sheet, allow it to cool completely before baking the second batch of cookies).

5. To shape the cookies, roll rounded teaspoons of dough between your palms into smooth, shiny balls measuring about 1 inch. The oil in the dough will keep it from sticking to your hands. Space the balls about 2 inches apart on the prepared sheets, 18 cookies per sheet. Bake, 1 sheet at a time, until cookies smell good and tops are dry and have many cracks, about 10 minutes. Do not overcook. Cookies should be soft, not dry. They will almost double in size when cooked. Cool the cookies on their baking sheets for 3 to 5 minutes, then transfer them to cooling racks to cool completely. Place cooled cookie racks on parchment paper or waxed paper.

6. To make the frosting, in a small bowl, use an electric hand mixer to beat the icing sugar, butter, 2 tablespoons of milk and vanilla until smooth and thick. The icing should have the consistency of heavy cream. If necessary, add more milk in droplets.

7. One at a time, dip the tops of 5 or 6 cookies in the frosting and place them upright on the cooling rack. Sprinkle them immediately with the colorful sprinkles or jimmies. Repeat with the remaining cookies. You can reuse any glitter that fell on the parchment or waxed paper. Let stand until the icing has set, about 1 hour. Serve or save cookies.

8. Storage. Store tightly at room temperature for 3 to 4 days. To freeze, place cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil and freeze securely. Transfer cookies to sturdy resealable plastic bags and freeze for up to 2 weeks. Completely thaw cookies in bags before removing and serving.

These melt-in-your-mouth cookies will nourish the soul of any chocolate lover. The dough is filled with semi-sweet chocolate chips and pieces of milk chocolate, white chocolate and caramelized white chocolate, more precisely the Dulcey de Valrhona. Pastry chef Jonni Scott has a soft spot for Valrhona, but you can substitute your favorite brand for it.

Get Ahead: Cookies should be shaped and refrigerated for 1 hour before baking.

Storage Notes: Baked cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week or in the freezer for 1 month.


Servings:

22

Size tested: 22 servings; makes 22 cookies

Ingredients
  • 12 tbsp (170 grams) unsalted European butter, such as Plugra or Kerrygold, at room temperature mild

  • 2/3 cup (135 grams) packed brown sugar

  • 1/4 cup (50 grams) granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

  • Barely 1 1/2 cups (175 grams) all-purpose flour

  • Barely 1/2 cup (40 grams) of Dutch cocoa powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

  • 1/2 teaspoon flaky sea salt, preferably Maldon, and more for dusting

  • 1 1/4 ounces (35 grams) white chocolate, roughly chopped

  • 1 1/4 ounces (35 grams) of milk chocolate, coarsely chopped

  • 1 1/4 ounces (35 grams) of Valrhona Dulcey chocolate (can replace caramel chips or caramel chips; see note)

  • 1 1/4 ounces (35 grams) sweet and sour chocolate chips

  • 1 1/4 ounces (35 grams) crispy white chocolate pearls (optional)


instructions

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle or using a hand mixer and large bowl, beat butter, dark brown sugar and granulated sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy consistency, 3 to 5 minutes. Scrape down sides of bowl, add vanilla and beat again over medium-high heat. Scrape the bowl again.

Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture with the white, milk and Dulcey chocolates, chocolate chips and white chocolate pearls, if applicable. Mix on low speed until the dough comes together. Do not over mix, as this will make the cookies hard. If you’re worried, turn off the blender a bit earlier and finish stirring by hand.

Line 2 large rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Using a No. 30 dish or a large table spoon, divide the dough into 2 tbsp portions and roll into smooth balls. Each ball should weigh about 40 grams. Place the balls on one of the baking sheets (you’ll want to divide them when baking) and refrigerate for 1 hour.

When you’re ready to bake, place a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees.

Divide the dough balls between the baking sheets, spacing them at least 3 to 4 inches apart. Bake, one sheet at a time, for 8 minutes. Don’t panic when they aren’t spread out in the oven. When the cookies are removed from the oven, gently press down with a round, flat object – such as the bottom of a measuring cup – wiping any chocolate between the cookies. Sprinkle flaky sea salt on cookies while still hot.

Let cookies cool completely on baking sheets.
