Basil and Pineapple Cookie Cake Recipe Recipe

This cookie cake recipe closes our week featuring Boyajian exquisite oils and vinegars. I was inspired to make this recipe by Martha Stewart's giant chocolate chip cookie cake. I used the basil oil both in the cookie dough, which by the way contains no butter, and the mascarpone cheese filling.

To repeat and reinforce the flavors in the filling, I deep-fried basil leaves, coated them in raw sugar, crumbled them and mixed them into the mascarpone filling. I also included freshly chopped ripe pineapple to add some sweetness to this gourmet dessert. 

Happy weekend everybody!

Sandwich Cookie Recipe

03.01.13 by Jackie

Yesterday, we had 12 guests over for dinner. I prepared the entire meal but wasn't planning to make a dessert, except for a large platter of fresh fruit. When everyone had finished their plate, my father-in-law, Daddy, said: "now let's head to the other room and have the desserts Jackie made!" I tried to whisper to him that there were none, but it was too late.

So I ran into the kitchen and whipped up with these sandwich cookies. I only needed 12 minutes to bake them and used fresh strawberries I luckily had in the refrigerator for the filling. Everyone was still enjoying their coffee and tea when my dessert was ready to be served. I could have waited a bit more for the cookies to cool and get firm but I think they were still enjoyable. Mission accomplished!

Mandarin and Ginger Sandwich Cookies  Recipe

Using the same sugar cookie dough I used for the pinwheel cookies, today I made mandarin and ginger flavored sandwich cookies. The flavor is repeated in the cream as well, and to give the treats a holiday vibe I topped them with green, red and white Christmas sprinkle toppings.

I know it's the holiday season when the citrus trees in our garden start producing copious amounts of fruit. I took some Chinese mandarins from the garden to make these cookies. They were so incredibly fragrant and sweet that after eating all the segments, I couldn't throw away the zest. I think they were put to good (and delicious) use!
