Dark Chocolate Apricot Cookie Pizza

chocolate-apricot-pizza-3

Prep: 1 Hour

Cook: 20 Minutes

Serves: 8

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons corn starch
  • 4 ounces Kerrygold Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup apricot preserves
  • 8 ounces of dark chocolate, chopped

Directions:

In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cornstarch. Set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the butter with an electric mixer on medium speed for about 1 minute, until nice and creamy.

Slowly stream in the sugar to the butter, while beating constantly.

Next, add the egg and vanilla and beat until combined.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet in 3 batches, mixing between each addition.

Gather the dough into a ball, press it flat into a disk, and wrap it in plastic wrap.

Refrigerate the dough for at least 4 hours, or overnight.

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350.

Roll the dough out into a 12” circle on a piece of parchment paper.

Transfer the parchment paper to a baking pan, and bake the cookie pizza until set, about 18 minutes. The edges should start to turn golden brown. The center may be a bit puffy, but it will settle as it cools.

Let the cookie pizza completely cool before proceeding.

Spread the apricot jam on the pizza. Top with the chopped chocolate and slice into wedges before serving.

Use the sugar cookie crust as a base, and top with all of your favorite toppings. A cream cheese frosting with sprinkles would be a great kids’ version (or an adult that eats like a kid). If you love white chocolate, it would be great here alone, or mixed in with the dark chocolate.

Rachel’s Strawberry Muesli

rachel strawberry muesli

This recipe comes from the original Swiss Bircher muesli, where porridge oats are soaked in a little water, then sweetened with delicious seasonal or dried fruit, and sometimes nuts and seeds too. Strawberries and raspberries work particularly well in this muesli recipe, as does grated apple, to which you could also add a smidgen of ground cinnamon.

The recipe was created in the early 1900s by the Swiss physician Dr Maximillian Bircher-Benner, who knew that a diet rich in nutrients was essential for the recuperation of the patients in his hospital.

Place the porridge oats in a bowl with the water. Allow the oats to sit for 10 minutes, then add in the strawberries. Mash with a fork before adding enough light agave syrup or honey, whichever you’re using, to sweeten the mixture.

Serve the muesli on its own, or with cream and brown sugar; or topped with natural yoghurt and toasted, chopped hazelnuts or almonds.

Rachel’s Banana Butterscotch Pudding

ban butterscotch pudding 15816I absolutely adore this pudding from Bill’s book, Simply Bill. He made this when I appeared with him on Great Food Live, and as soon as I tasted it I was hooked. I have adapted the recipe slightly to fit the pie dish that I have. To make this for 12 people, double this recipe and cook in a 10-inch square gratin dish for 55 minutes.

Ingredients:

FOR THE PUDDING:

1 cup (4 oz) all-purpose flour

3 tbsp baking powder

1/2 cup (4 oz) superfine sugar

1 egg, beaten

1 banana, mashed

1 cup milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

6 tbsp (3/4 stick) Kerrygold Butter, melted

FOR THE TOPPING:

1/2 cup (4 oz) light brown sugar

2 tbsp corn syrup

2/3 cup boiling water

Softly whipped cream or vanilla ice cream

Directions:

 

TO SERVE:

Preheat the oven 350°F (180°C). Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Add the sugar. Mix together the beaten egg, mashed banana, milk, vanilla extract and melted butter. Pour mixture into the dry ingredients and stir until combined. Pour this wet dough into a 9-inch pie dish and place the dish on a baking sheet.

To make the topping, put the brown sugar, corn syrup and boiling water in a saucepan. Bring to the boil and then drizzle over the pudding. Bake for 30–40 minutes, or until it feels slightly firm in the center. Serve with softly whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. If you’re not going to serve the pudding immediately, keep it somewhere warm until you are ready—it sits quite happily.
