椰子麥片餅乾 Coconut Oatmeal Cookies

今年到我哥哥家裏吃聖誕大餐,甜點當然是我負責的啦,聖誕節吃聖誕餅乾是傳統之一,所以我決定做餅乾。我做餅乾的原則是好吃第一、賣相第二、健康第三,要做出來好喫好看又不是糖和奶油多的嚇死人的餅乾,真的不容易,所以我不常做餅乾。這次還要再加上一個挑戰,gluten free。所以這次找到的食譜很神奇,真的好喫好看也比普通的餅乾健康一點,而且材料都是我家裏現場有的,全壘打餅乾啊! 這一款餅乾有著濃濃的椰子香味,鬆軟耐嚼的中心,吃完了齒唇間留著淡淡的椰子香。餅乾中加的麥片使它有點厚度支架,而不是一咬就化散掉的餅乾類型。每塊餅乾淋上一點融化的黑巧克力,好看而且讓味道更多層次一點。濃鬱微苦的巧克力跟清香的椰子應該是味覺的兩端,但是一起吃的味道,又特別的搭配,好吃又好看,兩贏。 我做的版本比較薄一點,喜歡多點嚼勁的餅乾的話可以做厚一點的餅乾。如果喜歡甜味中帶一丁點咸,可以在餅乾上加一點點海鹽,讓味道再多一層變化。 我的食譜糖少了點,所以材料拌好后需要用手指輕壓成型,不過不要壓的緊密,不然烤出來的餅乾會太實硬,要讓餅乾團鬆鬆的稍微成型就好了,才能烤出鬆軟耐嚼的餅乾。

Mini Pecan Pie 胡桃派(嬌小版)

胡桃派是美國最經典的甜點之一,更是感恩節家家戶戶必吃的傳統甜點。胡桃派有著滿滿的堅果香味,配上焦糖口味稍微有一點黏牙咬勁的内餡,和酥脆的派皮,歷年不衰的高人氣是好喫的證明。每年一到秋天我就會忍不住的開始想吃。 當然,我這次也改良了一下美式經典胡桃派的食譜。大部分胡桃派最大的問題就是太甜,甜到吃不出胡桃的香味,而且吃兩口就膩了。所以我的食譜降低了糖的分量,而失去的容量就多加胡桃來補足,這樣每一口咬下去都是胡桃滿滿的堅果香味,而焦糖内餡只是補助了甜味和加點不同的口感。 爲了讓味道更豐富,我還加碼加了美國南部釀的威士忌 – Bourbon。Bourbon 只能使用全新但經過烘炙處理的美國白橡木桶陳釀,酒香浓郁,口感醇厚绵柔,我覺得與胡桃派的味道是絕配。雖然Bourbon 的酒精濃度挺高的,但在煮内餡的過程中大部分的酒精都蒸發掉了,只留下味道。 經典的做法是9寸的派,但我做成4.25寸的嬌小版,看上去可愛,每個人分量也比較合適。 烤的時候派皮會縮一點,所以餡料不要加到頂。奶油、紅糖、蛋做的内餡會膨脹一點,所以不要覆蓋過胡桃,但是淋上去的時候每個胡桃都要整個淋到,這樣烤好的派一眼就看到亮眼的胡桃,很漂亮。
