These three simple ingredients will turn cookies into a masterpiece
It's time for the Christmas and New Year holidays. This means that every housewife will want to surprise her loved ones with some delicious dishes. It is not always necessary to look for new recipes to achieve this effect. Sometimes it's enough to simply add new ingredients to a familiar dish, making it sparkle with new colors.
This is exactly what the famous pastry chef Christina Tosi spoke about in her interview with Business Insider. She shared what ingredients should be added to cookies to renew their flavor and make a completely new recipe.
According to Tosi, you don't need to buy any unusual ingredients to improve your cookies. Most often, they can be found in the fridge or the pantry. The pastry chef says that most people associate desserts only with sugar. However, in fact, they, like any other dish, need to be seasoned.
A small pinch of salt will not make a dish salty, but will only help to bring out its flavor.
In addition, Tosi says that butter can also help to improve the taste of cookies. All you need to do is put the butter in a frying pan and wait until it acquires a nutty flavor. And when the butter is completely cool, use it according to the recipe. The confectioner says that this action will give the cookies "character" and reveal their soul. A similar effect can be achieved by replacing half the amount of usual sugar with brown sugar. In this case, the dish will acquire a caramel flavor.
You can add cinnamon to any Christmas or New Year's dessert. This seemingly simple spice will give the dish an incredible flavor and a real festive mood.
