Chocolate Cookies on the menu? Try pairing with Cream Sherry, Madeira, and Prosecco. Sweet bubbly Prosecco doesn't overwhelm simple sugar or shortbread cookies, a sweet cream sherry complements spiced cookies, and madeira's nutty notes match cookies with nuts perfectly. You could try NV Solera Cream Sherry. Reviewers quite like it with a 4.5 out of 5 star rating and a price of about 17 dollars per bottle.

NV Solera Cream Sherry

The Solera Cream Sherry has a brilliant amber and deep copper hue. With butterscotch and pecan aromas, the sweet salted nut and brown spice aromas carry a complex caramel accent. A sweet entry leads to a rounded, lush, moderately full-bodied palate with a lengthy, flavorful finish.

Instructions

In a medium saucepan, combine the butter and water. Over low heat, melt the butter. Add the brown sugar and stir until smooth and until the sugar has melted into the butter. Add the chocolate and Andes mint baking bits and stir until almost all the chocolate has melted. Remove from heat and continue to stir until the mixture is smooth. Pour into a large, heat proof mixing bowl let stand for at least 10 minutes to cool slightly. Meanwhile, Sift the flour, baking Soda, and salt into a medium bowl and set aside. Beat the eggs into the cool chocolate mixture, one at a time on high speed. Reduce the mixer to low and gradually add the flour mixture. Beat until well blended. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour. Preheat the oven to 350F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll the chilled dough into balls. I used a level tablespoon for each cookie. Place the balls about 2 inches apart on the sheets. Bake for 9-10 minutes. They will continue baking after you remove them from the oven so be careful not to over bake. As soon as you remove the cookies from the oven, sprinkle each one with the rest of the Andes baking chocolate. They are tiny pieces and will fall off the cookies so use your fingers. Allow the chocolate to melt and gently spread with the back of a spoon. If you are feeling creative, use a toothpick to make swirls with the mint and chocolate.

Tips

Health Tips

  • You can easily swap half of the white flour in most recipes for whole wheat flour to add some fiber and protein. It does result in a heavier dough, so for cookies, cakes, etc., you might try swapping in whole wheat pastry flour.

  • To make baked goods lighter and sneak in some extra nutrition, you can swap half the butter or oil (sometimes even all of it!) with an equal amount of unsweetened applesauce.

  • If you're trying to cut back on sugar, consider replacing some of the sugar in this recipe with a sweetener like Stevia or Splenda. If you're against these kinds of sweeteners, start reducing the amount of real sugar you use until your tastebuds adjust.

  • Believe it or not, some sources say you can substitute avocado puree for butter when making brownies. Try it and let us know how it turns out!

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • If a recipe doesn't specify whether you should use light brown sugar or dark brown sugar, just use whatever you have on hand or prefer. The difference is that dark brown sugar has more molasses and thus a stronger flavor.

  • Store brown sugar in an air-tight container to avoid hardening. If your brown sugar still gets too hard to use, you can use one of these techniques to soften it.

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.

Green Tips

  • Choose free range or organic eggs whenever possible! Even though they are more expensive, eggs are generally cheap to begin with, and eggs from cage-free chickens are worth the extra cost.
