Mini Lemon Raspberry Squares

Mini Lemon Raspberry Squares Ronit Penso

Lemon bars are among my favorite cookies; the contrast between the crispy buttery dough layer and the lemon cream on top is almost addictive for me.
Unfortunately, too many times the bars are too large and are made with a thick dough layer, covered with a thick, overly sweet lemon layer, which is far from soft and creamy, as it should be.
Therefore, I usually end up making the bars myself, exactly the way I like them:  thin dough layer, a bit less sugar, and shorter baking time, to make sure the lemon layer is still pleasantly gooey and moist. Continue reading

Crispy Flourless Sesame Seeds Cookies

Crispy Flourless Sesame Seeds Cookies Ronit PensoI came up with the recipe for these light and crispy cookies, as I wanted to create cookies that will contain sesame seeds as the main ingredient, and not just as an added garnish.

Flourless Banana, Peanut Butter and Coconut Cookies, with Chocolate Drizzle

Flourless Coconut, Peanut Butter and Banana Cookies, Ronit PensoThese tasty and chewy cookies started with a minor disappointment: I’ve tried one of the popular recipes for flourless peanut butter cookies (the ones that contain only peanut butter, sugar (or sweetener) and an egg), and the result was not as exciting for me as it was for a lot of the online reviewers. I thought the cookies were on the boring side taste-wise, and found their texture too crumbly to handle.
However, by then I was already in “flourless peanut butter recipe” mood, so I started to add “this and that” to the original recipe. The cookies here are the result of that process.
They are tasty on their own right, but the chocolate drizzle adds another layer of flavor, which goes so well with all the ingredients.
Try them and decide for yourself.

I hope that whoever invented Chocolate Crackles cookies (also known as Chocolate Crinkles) received some kind of reward or recognition, for creating these beautiful and tasty cookies. There are many variations for these great tasting cookies, but I especially like the one here, for its’ fairly short list of ingredients and ease of preparation.
The result is chewy and chocolaty cookies on the inside, while the outer snowy-white cracked layer is crunchy and sweet. No wonder they are always a hit with guests of any age.
