It’s poker night at work on Tuesday, and when I saw these poker chip cookies I knew I’d have to try making them. I ignored the actual recipe, using an ATK fridge box recipe instead, but followed the assembly instructions.
So… basic fridge box cookie dough was made. I used the new lid attachment for our mixer… which we knew would attach properly as it’s for a different (post 1950s) model. But some tape made it stick on, and it stopped the icing sugar flying everywhere!
I made three types: plain vanilla, green peppermint and ‘black’ chocolate. I used new gel food colourings this time, rather than my usual liquid colourings, and am ver impressed. I ended up using a whole tube of black colouring, and it got the chocolate dough very dark… although not black. For the green I used gel paste, and this was very impressive: you just dip a tooth pick into the paste and use that; three dips was enough for the green I wanted.
So with the three doughs you start the assembly.
DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME.
It’s not dangerous… it’s just a total nightmare of faffery.
Anyway… it starts with a log of the flavoured dough.
Then cut slices that are your cookies! Put these on a lined baking tray.
They expanded a bit, and the green ones more so.
