Daring Bakers: Marshmallow Cookies!

by Lauren | Celiac Teen on July 27, 2009

This month was fun.  We got to choose which cookies we made.  The choice was between marshmallow cookies and milano cookies.  Since I had never heard of milanos and was reminded of the marshmallow cookies we used to get (on occasion- okay, so maybe 5 boxes in my life, but they were always this special, exciting treat), I chose to make the marshmallow cookies.  Plus, why pass up an opportunity to make marshmallows for the first time??  I couldn’t do that…
So, here is my experience with this challenge, in pictures of course!

I made the dough first, but only used about 2 1/8 cups of flour, and a bit of xanthan gum.
Then, I rolled them out and cut ’em up!!
I love the shapes I got using my – newly rediscovered – Great-Grandmother’s cookie cutters.
Aren’t they cute?

They even came out perfectly =D.
However, considering that I only used 3/4 of the dough (the rest being in my freezer), I got tons of cookies!
Don’t you just love the cookie cutters?  I do.

Once that was all done, it was time for marshmallows!  This was super exciting =D.

Then I piped them all out, and let them sit.  
(Next time, put much more marshmallow on each cookie!)

I plopped a bit of food colouring into the last little bit, just for the fun of it.
Then, chocolate.  Next time, not so much oil, they melted pretty darn fast.
Before they had set, they shone beautifully.
And, of course they tasted wonderful as well!  
I seriously think that you should try these, and don’t bother with the gluten, these will no doubt do the trick =D.
The July Baring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Nicole at Sweet Tooth.  She chose Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Cookies and Milan Cookies from pastry chef Gale Gand of the Food Network.
Thanks to Nicole for this challenge, I enjoyed it very much.

PS – The flours I used was a mix of Bette Hagmans mix (6pts rice, 2pts potato and 1pt tapioca) and corn flour (not starch).
