Tea time with a {twist}

It's tea time! Today I baked 'easy-cookies' as I'd like to call them with a little bit of a twist. I don't suppose you'll be able to do it with any cookie recipe, but this one is a must-try! Cookies with a Rosé crunch to it! Yes, Rosé the light pinkish wine, often used for cocktails because of its lovely blush colour and 'lightness' in taste!

The twist is not in the actual making of the cookie, but in the baking! Once you've baked your cookies and it just needs to stay in the oven for 5 more minutes...that's your cue! Quickly take out the cookies from the oven and lightly brush the top of the cookie with a little bit of Rosé and pop them back into the oven! As you know the alcohol will bake away and you'll have lovely touch-of-Rosé flavoured cookies to serve with tea!


250g Stork Bake
650ml sugar
2 eggs
1100ml flour
5ml baking powder
2ml bicarb of soda
pinch of salt
50-100ml Rosé {of choice} - optional


Cream Stork Bake and sugar until smooth. Add 2 eggs. Sieve in dry ingredients. Mix to form a soft dough. Roll out the dough between two sheets of cling wrap. Use a cookie cutter to cut shapes. Bake the cookies on a lightly greased oven tray for 15minutes. Take the cookies out of the oven and brush Rosé on top of the cookies, do not let it drip down the sides, just a little brush of Rosé will be enough. Bake for another 5-10 minutes until light brown.

Tick-tock-tick-tock...Tea time with a twist!

  1. Loving your blog....
    going to make a cuppa and sit and browse further.

  2. Just discovered this blog and loving it! I want to try these koekies for a girly dinner party this weekend. I just have a question about the recipe... Is it really 1100ml flour and 650ml sugar? How many cookies does the make?

    Thanks, Annette

  3. Thank you Shel & Annette!

    I love feedback!

    @Annette: Yip, in 'cup' terms: 4 1/2 cups of flour & 2 1/2 cups sugar*

    And it makes up to 40 cookies, depending on the cookie cutter size*

    Hope this helps!

    Happy baking!
