Finally, a batch of homemade Arrowroot Cookies I had promised a sweet little lady weeks ago!
Don’t know why I kept putting off baking these cookies for so long. The recipe sat where I was constantly reminded of my promise but somehow I had developed a mental block about making them allowing the weeks to fly by.
Perhaps the memory of a recipe for Baby Teething Biscotti which had disappointed me a couple of months ago was still fresh on my mind. I’m still working on some changes to that recipe but since then the sweet girl has sprouted a few teeth.
Thought I’d better get going on these Arrowroot cookies before she’s into a little fancier and more decadent type of cookie.
I literally forced myself to bake some this morning trying to get over whatever was holding me back, usually nothing keeps me from trying a new recipe. The ingredients came together easily, rolled out perfectly and I had some fun giving them a little visual appeal.
This recipe is a keeper. I’m keeping it close at hand since I’ll soon be baking a batch for a handsome little man!
¼ cup butter room temperature
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
½ cup arrowroot flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
- Blend butter and brown sugar together until creamy.
- Add vanilla and egg and beat well.
- Sift together flours, baking powder and salt.
- Add dry ingredients to egg mixture and mix until combined.
- Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and roll into about ¼ inch thickness. Rolling dough between two sheets of wax paper makes things a little easier.
- Place cookies on a parchment lined cookie sheet, not too far apart as they don’t spread.
- Bake in a preheated 350 degree F. oven for about 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
- Cool on rack.
- Makes about 30 cookies.
Notes, Tips and Suggestions
- These cookies are simply delicious and adult friendly as well.
- Arrowroot can be purchased at your local bulk store.
- I've since heard that the cookies made for a happy little girl, think I'll be making more soon!
