Butter Cookies with Oatmeal and Peanuts

with 0 Comment
I prefer cookies either with a filling or made with multiple add-ons like this one. This is not a classic butter cookie, but an experiment that came out nicely from the oven. It's a perfect tea companion you can make to last up to a week. One can easily moderate the quantity of peanuts and oatmeal used in this recipe if required. Make sure both oatmeal and peanuts are lightly roasted before you add them in the cookie dough. One can also substitute peanuts with almonds or pistachio. These cookies are baked slightly longer than the normal time. For a smoother texture, coarsely grind both peanuts and oatmeal before adding in the dough. Let's make these delicious, nutritious and chunky butter cookies.

If you love classic Italian pasta recipes, you're going to love this unique preparation too which serves feta-filled ravioli with corn and leek soup. I've also added pumpkin which adds more flavor to the recipe. Though spinach is one of the common and popular filling ingredients for ravioli, I've omitted it completely. For best results, add cooked ravioli in the soup right before serving. It's a wholesome meal you can relish in the morning breakfast. For those, who're a bit lazy and are reluctant to make ravioli, good old spaghetti can do the job though you'll miss the desired flavor and taste. So, let's get started and make this delicious serving of pumpkin, corn, and leek soup served with soft ravioli pasta.

You can take locally available prawns but make sure you're not using frozen ones. As always, I prefer to use minimal ingredients for the seasoning when grilling or barbecuing seafood or white meat. The combination of sharp ginger with fresh green onion bulbs induces a unique flavor in the recipe and adds the required zing. Prawns get done quickly when sizzling on a hot grill so make sure you remove them quickly to avoid burns. Serve them with a bowl of spicy sauce and your favorite beverage to complete the party.

Weekend gathering brings wonderful grilled delights for family and friends. This time, it's a combination of grilled mackerel and delicious squid. I've used minimal seasoning for this one which can be enhanced to add more spice or flavor if required. While grilling squid, make sure the heat is intense. Mackerel should be grilled on a medium heat to get the best results. As always, I'll recommend a charcoal open grill if you really want to relish the authentic flavor.

The following pizza preparation is rich, cheesy and flavorful. Its topping includes beef mince, white onion and loads of cheese. Seasoning can be moderated or altered as per your taste. For a sharp flavor, a generous amount of red onions can be used in place of white onions. If you avoid red meat, chicken mince can be used though you may not get the authentic flavor. If you prefer a colorful topping, feel free to add bell pepper julienne in it. To get the best results, make sure the mince is not too fine and is completely fat-free. Serve it piping hot as the heavy topping may get soggy if kept for a long time. Let's make this delicious and fulfilling pizza recipe topped with beef mince and loads of cheese.
