Best of year 2010 with some Marble Sugar Cookies

4:50 AM

Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us.                                Hal Borland

Its again the time to bid adieu to the current year. How has it been for you? Last week saw a virtual friend expressing her 2010 feelings with different emoticons on her social networking page. Guess that is true for all of us, a mixed bag of good and bad times.

 Personally I had a marbled feeling like these cookies (yeah!that’s why so many marble cookies this year)…the year 2010 has been pretty bad with few good moments sprinkled in. But if I look back I see the wisdom that the past year’s bad experiences have instilled in me. Now am wiser, stronger, positive and I  value each and every moment that God blesses us with. Hope with this year’s experience I would not be as gullible as before. The new year brings lot of good promises. Am planning to start my work again. I know its way more difficult than I think, especially with a toddler and without any help but plan to take baby steps to my success.

On the blogging front, many things happened. I restarted my dream friendship chain called Arusuvai. Hope this would be successful to rekindle the last season’s charm of touching hearts and spreading friendship among Indian Bloggers.

Also won Indo’s giveaway and a cookbook from susan for my recipe in MLLA.

Bought my first DSLR and started taking food photography very very seriously. Thanks for all your encouragement friends.

Baking has become a serious affair in my kitchen now, and was able to dish up these fabulous treats for friends and family. No more complain on what we don’t get in India but lets make best use of what we have.

Also started baking breads at home. Yayyyy finally…thanks a ton Suma for the Gloripan tip-off (recipe to come soon).

Bengali recipes are where my love lies and am happy to have revived these old recipes.

Combined my love for art n crafts and cooking with these magnificent recipes. Aren’t they wonderful?

Though the year has been tough for us yet I choose to say “Cheers to a New Year and another chance for us to get it right. (Oprah Winfrey)”.  With positive notes I look forward to the New Year with more hope. wish the brand New year brings us joy and fulfilled dreams. Amen!

I also choose this moment to sincerely thank all my readers for supporting, appreciating and liking my space. It is you who made this place cherished and popular. Thanks for everyting.

With this here is a quick marble sugar cookies recipe, which we love with our evening coffee.

Chocolate Marble Sugar Cookies
Flour: 31/2 cups
Powdered sugar 1 cup:
Egg: 1
Soda-bi-carb: pinch of
Butter: ½ cup
Oil: ½ cup
Cocoa powder: 4 tbsp
Vanilla essence: ½ tsp
Milk: as required

Sieve the flour and soda together and keep aside.

Beat oil, butter and sugar together. Once creamy break the egg in. beat for a while. Mix in the essence.

pour the flour in 2-3 batches and mix to have a smooth and sticky dough. Add milk as required to bind everything together.

Now divide the dough in half and to one part knead the cocoa powder dissolved in little milk. Wrap both the white and chocolate dough in cling wraps and freeze for atleast an hour.

Once you are ready to bake preheat the oven at 190 C.

Take little of both the dough and make a small ball. Roll it out to ¼” thickness and with a cookie cutters dipped in flour cut shapes.

Place these on a greased baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes or till the sides start to turn light brown.

Cool and store in airtight containers. If you wish, pipe designs with royal icing.

My icing was not proper and was runny. So will not recommend the recipe I followed.

On this sweet note I take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy and Prosperous new year!!!

Have a great year ahead friends!!!
