How Do You Make Fruitcake Cookies?

This is truly one simple recipe that results in a delicious batch of cookies. There are no special steps or hoops to jump through. Begin with a food processor and place all your dry ingredients in the bowl, except the mix-ins. Lightly pulse to mix the ingredients together before adding your cubed butter and pulsing it 10-12 times to thoroughly blend it. Next, add your egg, orange juice, and zest, pulsing a couple of times. Add the last of your ingredients and give another couple of pulses before kneading your finished dough into two logs. Wrap the logs in plastic wrap, place in the fridge for a couple of hours, remove, slice, bake, and you have your cookies.

Tips for Making Fruitcake Cookies

• Be certain that your butter is chilled and not room temperature or melted. The consistency of the butter makes a difference in how your dough will turn out.
• Be certain to line your cookie sheets with parchment paper. Yes, it is safe to put parchment paper in the oven for baking purposes. It is not safe to put wax paper in the oven though, so be mindful of which one you are using as they are not the same at all.
• Try to keep your cookies around ¼ of an inch when slicing the dough for baking. If you make them too thick, they won’t cook evenly and you may end up with half-burnt, half undone cookies. If they’re too thin, you will end up with crunchier cookies that are more along the lines of wafers.
• The mix-ins are definitely able to be swapped out if you do not care for the ones used in this recipe. For instance, instead of glazed cherries, combinations of other dried fruits like dried cranberries, dried apricots, raisins or dried figs can be used. And, instead of almonds, walnuts, pistachios or pecans or a combination can be used. Please note, however, that the mix-ins chosen for this recipe are the ingredients you commonly find in fruitcakes. If you change up the mix-ins, the cookies may no longer as closely resemble a fruitcake.

Common Questions about Fruitcake Cookies

What Alcohol is best for Fruit Cake?

Although there is no alcohol used in this fruitcake cookie recipe, many people may want to add a touch of alcohol to their fruitcake. This is usually done right as it comes out of the oven and the alcohol is brushed over the cake. If so desired, you could possibly do the same with these cookies as they came out of the oven. Do note that I have never done this myself so I have no idea how the cookies would react and if it would turn out as a fruitcake would since the two desserts (these cookies and a traditional fruitcake) have different consistencies. However, if you want to give it a try, the best alcohol to use is medium sherry, dark rum, whiskey, brandy, or any orange-flavored liqueur.

Can Fruitcake Be Good?

Many people shy away from any recipe with the word “fruitcake” in it without giving it a try. This is because, through the years, there have been some bad renditions of this cake passed around. Between movies, TV shows, and the jokes that have put down fruitcake, many people are not even willing to try it. This is a misconception. Yes, fruitcake can turn out very bad if it is not made properly, however, fruitcake is delicious when made right. There is a reason it is still popular even with all the bad publicity it has received over the years. These cookies, in my opinion, are a good way to introduce people to the flavors of fruitcake. It might even get them to try traditional fruitcake if they have not already done so.

Can You Freeze Fruitcake?

Yes, fruitcake itself can be frozen and for a long period of time (around a year). However, I would not advise freezing fruitcake cookies. Cookies and their consistencies do not tend to freeze well once they have been baked. This can result in an inedible cookie. I would suggest keeping your cookies in dough form if you end up not needing the entire batch all at once. Simply keep it wrapped in the plastic wrap until it is needed. I would keep it frozen for about two weeks, but no longer.

Do not be afraid to make these cookies simply because of the name. Besides, if you take them to a party, nobody will have any idea what they’re called unless they ask. Let them be surprised at the mention of fruitcake, and they just might expand their palate when it comes to trying foods they would never have before. These Fruitcake Cookies are one of the best ways to include two favorites for the holidays while only making one recipe. Enjoy!

How Do You Make Santa’s Trash Cookies?

These cookies are just like any basic cookie recipe when it comes to preparing and baking. You’ll want to pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees and use parchment paper on your cookie sheets for the best results. To start, mix your flour and baking soda together. In a separate bowl, cream your two sugars and butter together, adding the egg and vanilla afterward and mixing it again. Add your flour to the sugar mixture, a bit at a time, until you have your complete batter. Fold in the remaining ingredients, add to the cookie sheets, bake, and voila, you have your perfect cookies.

Tips for Making Santa’s Trash Cookies

• Be sure to fold in your chips, pretzels, etc. If not, you’ll be disappointed in how much they disappear or get worn down in the batter if you stir them in with the rest of the ingredients.

• Some may just throw all the ingredients in a bowl at once, then mix it together. Although this may work fine, the consistency of your cookie may not turn out the same as shown in this recipe. Believe it or not, the way you combine and mix the ingredients can alter the state of the finished cookie.

• If some of the ingredients such as the various chocolate chips are not to your liking flavor-wise, opt for another flavor or ingredient. The fun part about these cookies is adjusting them to contain all your favorite ingredients.

Common Questions About Santa’s Trash Cookies

Why is it Called a Kitchen Sink Cookie?

Santa’s Trash Cookies are a rendition of the cookie also known as a kitchen sink cookie. Most cookies are made with one or two mix-ins which are the added flavor components such as chocolate chips or nuts. However, this cookie, in particular, contains quite a few mix-ins. There’s a common saying that goes, “Everything but the kitchen sink.” This means that everything goes, except the kitchen sink, which isn’t normally something that gets removed and taken when people move houses. This popular saying got turned into a cookie concept and the holiday version of that concept is this cookie recipe!

What’s in the Kitchen Sink Cookies at Starbucks?

Although my recipe is the holiday version and differs greatly from the Starbucks cookie, Starbucks has definitely made this cookie style popular. The most common mix-ins found in a Starbucks sink cookie is semi-sweet chocolate chips, crushed salted pretzels, dried cherries, chewy caramel bits, and rolled oats. Of course, each person has their own mix-ins they normally like to use for their kitchen sink cookie. This means that each recipe you run into with this name, or a similar name, may not be the same.

Why Do My Chocolate Chips Sink?

Your chocolate chips shouldn’t sink in a cookie batter since it’s normally thicker than a muffin or cake batter. However, if they do sink, it means your batter was too thin and couldn’t support the weight of the chocolate chips. If your chocolate chips are sinking, this means your batter is far too thin to create good cookies and you’ll want to thicken it up by adding more flour. Your cookie batter should be thick enough to be scoopable and it will be slightly sticky. If it’s the consistency of a cake batter, you will not be able to scoop it onto the cookie sheet without it running everywhere and making a mess. Cookies need to be more uniform when going into the oven or you will end up with one large, thin cookie melted together in the oven. Your mix-ins will turn out gross as well.

If you’ve never had a kitchen sink cookie or Santa’s Trash Cookies, you really have to give them a try. There’s something overly satisfying about adding in so many various ingredients that it adds extra excitement to the cookie making process. I know, sounds silly, but once you try them for yourself, you’ll definitely understand what I’m referring to. I just have to note, the name signifies that these cookies or meant for the holidays, but don’t hesitate to make them throughout the year. Santa’s Trash Cookies don’t need a time of year to be the perfect cookie.

Baileys Irish Cream Hot Chocolate Bundt Cake Recipe

Although bundt cakes were inspired by the Eastern Europeans, the pan itself was not invented until late into the 20th century. H. David Dalquist invented these staple cake pans in the 1950s and they quickly became popular across the US. Now, they are used in all areas of the world to make the famous bundt cake. Since their creation, bundt pans have become useful for more than just making cakes and even have a plethora of designs to choose from.

The pan was actually created for a society of Jewish women who wanted to try their hand at making a German cake called “kugelhopf.” It was much like the bundt cake we are used to these days, only denser and not as easy to make by hand, which is why they inquired about a special pan being made to suit the dessert. Dalquist first called it a “bund” pan, which is the German word for “bond,” but then later added the “T” for trademarking purposes. I’ve always thought it would be fun to make that traditional German cake. However, I opted for trying out a new flavor of bundt cake instead, since they’re so similar, and came up with this delicious Baileys Hot Chocolate Bundt Cake.

Begin by greasing your bundt pan (preferably a 10-cup pan) then dust with cocoa powder. In one bowl, cream together the sugar and eggs, while mixing together the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. In a saucepan, combine the butter and water until the butter melts. Add in the cocoa and espresso powders at this point and stir until dissolved. Remove from the stove to cool. To the egg mixture, add the butter mixture and beat for a minute before adding in the Baileys and vanilla and beating the mixture for another minute. Fold in the flour mixture a bit at a time until it is all incorporated then pour it into the prepared bundt pan. Bake for around 50 minutes at 325 degrees. While the cake is cooling, heat your cream for the topping in a sauce pot over the stuff. Wait for it to steam before removing it from the heat and adding the rest of the ingredients. Don’t stir, just let it sit for about five minutes, then stir it. Place cooled cake on a rack and pour the topping over it. This sounds like a lot of steps, but it all comes together pretty quickly to make a delicious cake.

Tips for Making Baileys Irish Cream Hot Chocolate Bundt Cake

• If desired, you can heat your cream for the topping in the microwave. It should take around 50 seconds. Try not to let it boil; just bring it to the point that it is steaming.

• If desired, you can garnish the cake right after pouring the topping over it with powdered sugar and sprinkles. I like to use Christmas sprinkles since I make it during the holidays.

• Be sure the cake is completely cooled before adding the topping. If not, it will thin out the topping and soak it up rather than the topping sitting up on top of the cake as it should.

• If you do not want to use alcohol, you can omit it altogether.

• If you do not want to use Baileys, you can use a different Irish Cream your favorite liquor such as spiced rum, Kahlua, bourbon cream, amaretto, etc.

• The garnish is option. If you choose to garnish your cake on top of the ganache do it before it sets up completely if using sprinkles.

• Learn how to make your own vanilla extract. It has been years since I purchased vanilla extract! I always make my own.

Common Questions about Baileys Irish Cream Hot Chocolate Bundt Cake

What is Different about a Bundt Cake?

A bundt cake will often end up being a touch more dense than an average cake. The shape and the pan it’s cooked in are the two biggest differences. Any cake cooked in that classic round pan is simply a bundt cake. However, the shape of the pan allows more of the cake to touch the edges of the pan which results in more of that crispy cooked batter like you might find only at the bottom of a regular cake. A bundt cake will be surrounded by it. Because of its design and the crustier edges, it’s great for highly decorated cakes because it can better support itself.

How Much do Bundt Cakes Cost?

This all depends on the area you are buying them in and rather you are talking about the pan or an actual pre-cooked cake. On average, cakes in grocery stores like this can cost as much as $10. However, personalized cakes or specialty cakes can be as much as $65 or more, depending on the details of the order and business you are buying it from. Bundt pans themselves can range from $10 – $30+, depending on the style and shape you are purchasing. Some specialty shapes will cost more than just a basic bundt pan.

Bundt cakes can be a lot of fun to experiment with, especially when it comes to flavors and shapes. I have been eyeing some Nordic bundt pans that have gorgeous designs that really stick out at events. Whatever bundt pan you choose to use, you’re sure to love the end result of this Baileys Hot Chocolate Bundt Cake.
