Personal notes/温馨小贴士:

almond london cookies– i halved the recipe and made 17 cookies using a 3.5cm cookie scoop

– i melted about 130g of dark chocolate melts to coat the cookies ~ i found the amount just nice for dipping
我融化了130克黑巧克力涂抹曲奇 ~ 份量刚好

– i did not have nestum (not in beijing ya?) and used spelt oats… the taste still worked out well
北京没找着Nestum, 所以用了斯佩耳特小麦麦片。。。味道也很好

– my cookies were baked for 18 minutes

– halved toasted almonds and sliced almonds were used for the ears and feet respectively. melted white and dark chocolate have been used for eyes, whiskers and paws. you can fix the ears immediately after the cookie has been coated

    how do you ensure the cookies stay a round ball shape after baking? mine spread out like a dome after bake.


    • Victoria Bakes (December 17, 2013)

      Hello Cindy, there are quite a few reasons to this. Not sure if you made this under warm condition but u can try chilling the dough before baking. David Lebovitz has good tips to share about some reasons why your cookie spread. You may like to check this out and hope it helps
