Eggless Chocolate Piped Cookies

   

so light, crumbly and melt in mouth buttery cookies with chocolate flavor using piping method.



Are there some cocoa powder and salted butter in your pantry ? If yes, then here is an amazing idea to use these two along with some other ingredients to make some absolutely delicious in taste, crumbly in texture and much beautiful in look cookies. And the name is Eggless Chocolate Piped Cookies.

What is piped cookie ?


From the name itself, one can guess the cookies are shaped by piping. Basically the cookie dough first put into a piping bag fitted with any desirable nozzle or even without any nozzle. Then the cookies are shaped as per the individual choice over a baking tray. But yes, these cookies are quite similar to Indian style butter cookies and here only difference is the way of creating the shape of the cookies as well as its dough is bit creamier than butter cookies which helps to pipe easily.

Chocolate piped cookies !!!


Yes ! doesn't it sound just melt in mouth chocolaty 😊

These are completely egg free cookies and for a chocolate addict, this is the much perfect as well as super simple recipe to make and enjoy !




Ingredients for these cookies :


  • All purpose flour - I have used only the all purpose flour. Instead of only all purpose flour, both all purpose flour and wheat flour can be used in 1 : 1 ratio.
  • Cocoa powder - Cocoa powder plays for the chocolate flavor addition in these cookies.
  • Cornstarch - This makes the cookies more crumbly. 
  • Butter - Butter should be at room temperature. I have used salted butter. But if you are using unsalted butter, then add 1 pinch of salt to the dry ingredients.
  • Powdered sugar - Powdered sugar is a nice option instead of regular sugar. It takes less time to incorporate with the butter. Simply in a grinder jar make a fine powder of regular sugar to get homemade powdered sugar. I have used 1/4 cup of this and yes, the sweetness is adjustable. Instead of 1/4 cup, 2/3 cup powdered sugar can be used for little more sweetness in the cookies.
  • Vanilla essence - This gives a nice flavor in the cookies. Any other flavor can be opted if desired.
  • Milk - Milk addition is completely optional. One has to check if the dough is perfect to pipe or not. If the cookie doesn't hold shape while piping, then add 1 tbsp milk at a time to the dough and mix again so that the dough can be easily piped after that.



How to make chocolate piped cookies ?


First of all, the oven has to be preheated at 170 deg C. Also a baking tray is lined with parchment paper and kept aside. 

Then all the dry ingredients as all purpose flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch are sifted 1-2 times in a bowl. Next in another mixing bowl, butter (at room temperature) is mixed with powdered sugar either using a hand whisk or electric whisk till becomes light and fluffy. Then vanilla essence is mixed to it. After that, all the sifted dry ingredients are added and mixed till well combined. In this stage if the dough seems little thick, then 1 tbsp milk one can add at a time and mix again so that the dough can be easily piped without having any crumb. 

Next a piping bag is fitted with any desirable nozzle or even without any nozzle (I have picked a medium star nozzle). Some amount of the dough is filled into it and piped like 2 inch circles over the baking tray lined with parchment paper, keeping 1 inch space in between. Finally the cookies are baked for 10-12 minutes over 170 deg C. After baking, these are transferred to a wire rack and allowed to cool down completely. Then those are stored in an air-tight container to use later.

Dietary Notes :


✔  Egg free
✔  Can be made in oven and in gas stove
✔  Easy and simple
✔  Perfect for gifting, special day celebration etc.

    Serving suggestion :


    These are the super quick and easiest cookies ever. Only the thing one has to take time is put the dough in the piping bag and pipe into any desired shapes. This type of cookies are soft from inside where as a deliciously crispy texture on the outside. For tea time or even any time of a day one can enjoy these beauties. These can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5-6 days and in refrigerator for 1 month. So make in advance and store to have any point of time when the mood desires some chocoholic time.

    Milk addition is completely optional. One has to check if the dough is perfect to pipe or not. If the cookie doesn't hold shape while piping, then add 1 tbsp milk at a time to the dough and mix again so that the dough can be easily piped after that. If the cookies seem not to hold shape after baking then just after piping, the cookies can be kept in freezer for 15-20 minutes to chilled and after baking these will surely retain their shapes. Instead of only all purpose flour, both all purpose flour and wheat flour can be used in 1 : 1 ratio. I have used salted butter. But if you are using unsalted butter, then add 1 pinch of salt to the dry ingredients. Adjust the sweetness. Instead of 1/4 cup, 2/3 cup powdered sugar can be used for little more sweetness in the cookies.
