Chocolate Tart « Rebel Without a Sauce
phuongus:

Not sure what these are called, but I helped Angel’s aunt and mother make these during winter break. They’re only about an inch or two long, which makes them dangerously addictive. The recipe is as follows:
Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees. In a bowl, use your hands to knead together until doughy:
Two cups of flour
8 oz of cream cheese
~1/2 cup of sugar (I put ~1/3 since I don’t like things THAT sweet)
A couple tsps of vanilla extract
After that, separate it into two blobs, wrap each in plastic wrap, and refrigerate both for a few hours. Next, get approximately a fistful of dough and flatten that with a rolling pin to your desired thickness of cookie. Cut the flattened dough into squares with a pizza cutter or other type of cutter. Place a blob of the fruit pastry filling of your choice in the middle. Fold the corners of the square over the pastry. After filling up a cookie sheet, put in the oven for approximately 10-15 minutes. Upon taking them out, allow them to cool for a few minutes and sprinkle powdered sugar for presentation. 
Enjoy!

Yesterday, to celebrate my acceptance into University, I decided to make Vanilla Melting Moments. I haven’t made these in a while, and I thought I should take the time and effort to do so, since yesterday was a pretty important day for my future. So, congratulations to everyone who got accepted into University, and as a present, here’s the recipe! I’m not sure where I got the recipe from (it was from a long time ago, back in Year 9)

Vanilla Melting Moments

Ingredients

  • 125g butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2 tablespoons icing sugar
  • 3/4 cup plain flour
  • 1/4 cup cornflour

Filling

  • 30g butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1 teaspoon milk, approximately

Method

  1. Beat butter, essence and sifted icing sugar in a small bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Stir in sifted flours.
  2. Spoon mixture into a piping bag fitted with a 1cm fluted tube. Pipe 3cm rosettes about 3cm apart onto lightly greased oven trays.
  3. Bake in moderate oven about 10 minutes or until lightly browned; cool on trays. Join cold biscuits with filling.
  4. To make the filling: beat butter, essence and sifted icing sugar in a small bowl until light and fluffy; beat in enough milk to make mixture spreadable.

ENJOY! :D
