I am giving this recipe a try right now because I am home all day with what feels like a flu coming on, and I am also on a bon bon eating frenzy right now. So, as usual, I changed up the recipe a bit.

My dates are very sweet and not soft, so I am soaking them in vodka, with real Canadian maple syrup, vanilla extract, coarse sea salt and a bit of water.

I shelled some walnuts, then put them in a grinder and made a walnut paste, to which I added a little sugar-free cocoa and a bit of coffee.

When the dates absorb enough moisture then I will combine more cocoa powder and water and roll. At this point the balance of sweet to bitter is guesswork. But I can always roll them in a mixture of icing sugar and cocoa powder at the end.

I just put a splash of the liquid the dates are soaking in, in my coffee. It's pleasant but not sweet at all. I may have a sweet to bitter ratio problem later.

I thought I had a packet of dates in the fridge but it must have got up and walked away. Or staggered away, as Octo's would.

Well, I think my batter was too sticky and won't set properly in the fridge, and it was not sweet at all, so I rolled the chocolate batter in a mixture of organic golden cane sugar and icing sugar with a sprinkle of cocoa powder and I am hoping the sweet to bitter will be balanced, but I won't know until tomorrow because I don't think beer and chocolate go together. But I did lick off the sticky chocolate batter dipped into the sugar mixture from every little finger. Yummy.

It may turn out to be the best recipe ever! I'm making shortbread. easy this year with a whipped recipe instead of kneading the dough endlessly. But I frapped my mixer. Oh well. wine.gif

Let us know how the whipped batter works, because if I can whip up a batter quickly - with excellent results - then I will be more apt to start baking again.

Oh my gosh, it's the best recipe ever.

Quote:Ingredients

½ cup of salted butter
½ cup of hard margarine
½ cup of icing sugar
1½ cups of flour

Try Premium Almond Paste in This Recipe.

Instructions

Whip the margarine, butter and icing sugar together well. You can use all butter for sure,then it is a shortbread for the purist.
Once it looks all deliciously creamy, resist from eating it by the spoonful, and get your flour ready.
Start the mixer and slowly add in the flour, until it has all been added in.
Then you can proceed to let your mixer do all the work for you and whip it for 6 minutes. You are wanting lighter than air shortbread here.
Using a small cookie scoop, scoop the dough out onto an ungreased baking sheet. Top with sprinkles or a piece of Christmas cherry.
Bake them in a 275 degree oven for about 30-35 minutes you want to dry out shortbread in essence, not bake it, thus the low temperature.
(If you have a warm kitchen or live in a warm climate, cool the cookies in the fridge then bake. They won't flatten out)

I love this recipe. I put the cookies in the freezer for 10 minutes or so to cool before going in the oven.
