Acorn Cookies

Acorn Cookies - All that's Jas

One annoying thing about me is that when I want something, I want it now. In my young age, whenever mom told me we’re going clothes shopping the following weekend, I annoyed her until she gave in and we went shopping that same day.

It’s to no surprise then that I had to bake both acorn and hedgehog cookies on the same day I discovered their recipes here, even though I was already baking ghost cookies for my granddaughter’s school party. Luckily, my husband has no problem polishing off a few dozen of cookies. No, he didn’t eat them all in one sitting. That would be gross.

You will love the softness and flavor of these cookies with a touch of autumn. #cookies… Click To Tweet

 

Ingredients:
Makes two dozen

1 1/3 cup all-purpose Flour
1 pkg (about 3 oz.) Instant Vanilla Pudding
¾ cup powdered Sugar
1 ½ teaspoon Baking Powder
½ cup (8 tbsp) Butter, softened
1-2 tablespoons Milk
Fruit Jam of your choice (I used strawberry jam)
1 cup Chocolate Chips
1 tablespoon Oil
Ground Walnuts and/or Coconut Flour

 

Directions:

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Add butter and milk and knead until the dough is soft but does not stick to your fingers. You might need to add more milk or flour, depending on your dough. I made these cookies twice using the same measurements and I had to add more flour the second time. Not sure why.

Line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper.

To make acorn halves, take a teaspoon of dough and form it into a pear shape following the shape of the spoon. Narrow the dough toward the end. The rounded side should be thicker. To easy remove dough from the spoon, dip the spoon into flour in between each cookie.

Place the acorn halves one –inch apart on prepared cookie sheets. Refrigerate for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Bake cookies until edges are slightly browned, about 7-8 minutes. Please note: oven temperatures vary. Keep a close eye on your cookies.  Remove from oven and let cool completely.

Connect two acorn halves using fruit jam of your choice as glue.

Heat the oil in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add chocolate and stir until chocolate has completely melted.  Dip the rounded side of acorn cookies about one-third up, into the melted chocolate. Shake off the excess chocolate then roll into coconut flour or ground walnuts. You can ground the nuts in a food processor if you don’t have a nut grinder. Place cookies on waxed paper. Let the chocolate harden. Store the cookies in an air-tight container.

    These look great! I am looking forward to making them, as well as the hedgehog cookies. Yes, I will also have to make both. I appreciate the visual on how to shape the acorns dough before baking.
