Rueditas de Chocolates - Chocolate Wheel Cookies


There are have been a lot of incredible women on both sides of my family which have passed down wonderful culinary traditions to the new generations of cooks... one of the most treasured and reveered women in my family is my mum's aunt - Teresita.  She taught my mum almost everything she knew when it came to house keeping, crocheting, quilting and of course cooking!  One of the many, many recipes which comes from Teresitas little recipe book,  is a great cookie recipe 'Rueditas de Chocolates' which literally means Little Chocolate Wheels... Not all good things come in packs in the supermarket... there is no taste sensation more enjoyable than a warm baked cookie just out of the oven!  Give it a try... it's easier than you think!

Rueditas de Chocolates



 






Ingredients
  • 120g of butter
  • 110g of sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • 3 tablespoons of milk
  • 2 cups of plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 block of chocolate (melted)

 Let the butter soften and add the sugar slowly mixing well.  Add the egg yolk and vanilla essence mixing well.  Add the milk and mix.  Add the plain flour, salt and baking powder mixing through until dough like.

Split the two into two roughly equal parts.  Take one of the dough halves and place in a bowl and add the melted chocolate to the dough and mix through. 

Roll out the plain dough into a rectangle shape.  Then roll out the chocolate dough in a roughly similar sized rectangle.  Place and gently press the plain rectangle of dough on top of the chocolate dough.  Roll the dough tightly and place some cling film around the roll of dough for a few hours.

Remove from the fridge and cut 1/2cm sized discs from the roll.  Place on a well lined tray.  Put in a pre-heated oven (180 degrees) for 10 minutes or until well cooked.  Take out of the oven, allow to cool and devour the cookie delight!

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz!
