INGREDIENTS AND SUBSTITUTES

Ingredient quantities please refer to the recipes card (Click here)!

  • Nestum Cereal – Nestum cereal is a brand of cereal that is made from wheat, corn, and rice. It’s known for its crunchy texture and nutty flavor. If you don’t have Nestum cereal, you can substitute it with crushed cornflakes or crushed rice cereal.
  • Butter – This is the primary fat component in the cookies, providing richness and flavor. It is a crucial ingredient in cookies, providing flavor and contributing to the texture. Margarine or a non-dairy butter substitute can be used, but keep in mind that it might slightly alter the taste. If you don’t have unsalted butter, you can use salted butter and adjust the amount of added salt in the recipe accordingly.
  • Icing Sugar – Also known as powdered sugar, icing sugar adds sweetness and helps create a tender texture in the cookies. If you don’t have icing sugar, you can make your own by blending granulated sugar in a food processor until it reaches a fine powdery consistency.
  • Eggs – Eggs provide structure and moisture to baked goods. In this recipe, they help bind the ingredients together and add richness to the cookies. If you’re allergic to eggs or prefer not to use them, you can try using a commercial egg replacer or a flaxseed meal/water mixture as a substitute.
  • Plain Flour – Also known as all-purpose flour, plain flour is a versatile flour that is commonly used in baking. It has a moderate protein content, which makes it suitable for a wide range of recipes. If you prefer, you can use cake flour or pastry flour for a softer texture, or whole wheat flour for a nuttier flavor.
  • Salt – Salt enhances the flavors in the cookies and balances out the sweetness. You can use regular table salt or sea salt. If you’re using salted butter, you may want to reduce the amount of added salt in the recipe.
  • Cornstarch Cornstarch is a fine powder made from the starch of corn kernels. It’s commonly used as a thickening agent in baking and cooking. In this recipe, cornstarch helps create a tender texture in the cookies. If you don’t have cornstarch, you can use arrowroot powder or potato starch as a substitute.

Remember, while substitutes can be used, they may alter the taste, texture, and overall outcome of the cookies. It’s always a good idea to experiment and adjust the recipe according to your preferences and dietary restrictions.

RECIPES TIPS

  • Use Room Temperature Ingredients: Make sure your butter is softened to room temperature before starting the recipe. This ensures easy mixing and a smooth cookie dough texture.
  • Cream Butter and Sugar Properly: Creaming the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy is key to achieving the right texture in your cookies. Beat them together for at least 1-2 minutes until the mixture is pale and airy.
  • Do Not Overmix: Once you add the flour to the cookie dough, mix only until the ingredients are just combined. Overmixing can lead to tough cookies. Stop mixing as soon as the dough comes together.
  • Use a Cookie Scoop for Uniform Size: To ensure that your cookies bake evenly, use a cookie scoop or spoon to portion out the dough. This ensures that each cookie is of uniform size, leading to consistent baking times and results.
  • Press Dough Gently: When shaping the cookie dough into balls and coating them with the reserved Nestum cereal, press down gently to flatten the dough slightly. This helps the cookies spread evenly while baking and ensures they have a uniform thickness.
  • Preheat the Oven: Make sure your oven is fully preheated to the correct temperature before baking the cookies. This ensures even baking and prevents them from spreading too much.
  • Use Parchment Paper or Silicone Baking Mat: Line your baking tray with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat to prevent the cookies from sticking and ensure easy cleanup.
  • Keep an Eye on Baking Time: Since oven temperatures can vary, keep an eye on the cookies while they’re baking. They’re done when the edges are lightly golden brown. Overbaking can result in dry cookies.
  • Cool on a Wire Rack: Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely. This helps them firm up and prevents them from becoming too fragile.
  • Store Properly: Store the cooled cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. They can also be frozen for longer storage.

Remember, baking is an art, and small adjustments can cater to personal preferences. Don’t hesitate to experiment with ingredient ratios and shapes to make these Coffee Butter Cookies your own delightful creation!

RECIPES FAQS

Can I use a different type of cereal?

Yes, you can experiment with different types of cereal in this recipe. Cornflakes, Rice Krispies, or crushed graham crackers can be used as substitutes for Nestum cereal.

Can I use salted butter instead of unsalted butter?

While unsalted butter is recommended for baking to control the amount of salt in the recipe, you can use salted butter if that’s what you have on hand. Just reduce the amount of added salt in the recipe accordingly.

How long will the cookies stay fresh?

Properly stored in an airtight container at room temperature, Crunchy Nestum Cereal Cookies will stay fresh for up to one week. However, they are best enjoyed within the first few days of baking for optimal crispiness.

Can I freeze the baked cookies?

Yes, you can freeze the baked cookies for longer storage. Once cooled completely, place the cookies in a freezer-safe container or resealable plastic bag, separating layers with parchment paper. They can be stored in the freezer for up to three months.

How can I prevent the cookies from spreading too much during baking?

Chilling the cookie dough in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes before shaping and baking can help prevent excessive spreading. Additionally, make sure your baking sheets are cool before placing the cookie dough on them.

Can I make smaller or larger cookies?

Yes, you can adjust the size of the cookies based on your preference. For smaller cookies, use a smaller portion of dough and adjust the baking time accordingly. For larger cookies, use a larger portion of dough and extend the baking time as needed.

Can I add additional flavorings or mix-ins to the cookies?

Absolutely! You can customize the cookies by adding ingredients like chocolate chips, chopped nuts, dried fruit, or spices such as cinnamon or nutmeg to enhance the flavor and texture.

How do I prevent the cookies from becoming too hard?

To maintain the cookies’ crunchiness, store them in an airtight container once cooled completely. Adding a slice of bread to the container can help retain moisture and prevent the cookies from becoming too hard.
