Tis the Season …. for Airplane Cookies

Happy Holidays!

It is that time of the year…

I had some left over toffee bits and dark chocolate chips and went looking for a recipe that I could use. This year’s airplane cookies are loosely based on this recipe. As always I improvised and this is how I made mine.


2 cups whole wheat pastry flour

1/2 brown sugar

1 stick butter

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla essence

1 egg substitute

1/2 cup toffee chips

1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.

Whisk together butter, sugar, egg substitute, vanilla essence with a wooden ladle in a separate bowl.

Mix dry and wet ingredients. Add toffee and chocolate chips. Use water as needed. Mix well.

Roll out the dough on a flat surface and shape cookies using airplane cookie cutter. Layout cookies on parchment paper in an oven safe pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes.

Cool on a rack. Eat as is or decorate with some icing. Yummy!

Toffee Chip Airplane Cookies

It’s that time of the year … for Airplane Cookies!

I have been wanting to use toffee for sometime and had picked a bag of them some time back. So the choice this year was easy. I went looking for an egg free toffee cookie recipe and I wasn’t disappointed. The shapes didn’t work out perfectly, but the taste was still delicious. My recipe is loosely based on this one. Here’s how I made mine.


2 cups whole purpose flour

1/2 stick butter

1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup toffee bits

1/4 cup water

chocloate icing for decoration

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix sugar, butter and sourcream and whip until well mixed. Meanwhile mix other dry ingredients. Combine everything. Roll out batter using additional flour to prevent sticking. Using airplane cookie cutters cut into desired shapes.

Lay out cookies on a baking plate lined with parchment paper. Bake for 20-22 minutes until cooked. Cool. Decorate with some chocolate icing if desired. Else can also add chocolate chips along with toffee bits.

Enjoy with a hot cuppa tea!

Happy Holidays!

Airplane Cookies have Landed!

Happy Holidays!

Each year, I try a different recipe. This year I made two different varieties: one almond flavor repeating Ronit’s cookie recipe from last year that I really liked and a chocolate version following this brownie roll out cookie recipe.

I did not make any changes to the recipes, other than using an egg substitute in each.

Both turned out great and perfect for the office holiday party!

Tis the time …. for airplane cookies

I was not much of a cookie baker until I got my pair of airplane cookie cutters!

IMG_3109Here is this years recipe, adapted from this one.


340g all purpose flour
170g brown sugar
110g butter
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp ginger powder
1 tsp orange essence
1 large egg

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix all dry ingredients. Set aside. Whisk egg, sugar, butter and syrup. Fold in dry ingredients and mix well. Add orange essence and mix well.

ac1Divide dough into 4 parts. Roll out, cut using your favorite cookie cutter. Lay out in rimmed baking sheets and bake for 12-14 minutes.

Use light brown sugar and golden syrup for lighter colored cookies. If you like orange, the aroma in your kitchen as you bake this will be heavenly!

As always enjoy with a good cuppa tea.
