One of my favourite foods. My mind was blown when I saw it served at our hotel breakfast buffet on our last trip to Spain. I struggled to make it using the traditional catalunya method and then discovered how I’m sure they do it in the restaurants.
A hybrid of Isa Chandra Moskovitz’s Broccoli Mac & Cheese and America’s Test Kitchen’s Vegan Nacho Cheese Dip. What I’ve done here is basically double the amount of sauce by adding a medium potato blended past recognition, and some coconut oil.
Based on Isa Chandra Moskovitz’s “Citrus Glitters” I’ve added candied ginger and narrowed it down to just lemon zest. This is basically a vegan take on old fashioned sugar cookies, and could easily be adapted to any flavour you like.
This has become my top cookie decoration technique, it’s fun, the results are beautiful, it doesn’t add sugar to the cookies, the cookies stay crispy, and it’s done once the cookies are out of the oven.
Another variation on America’s Test Kitchen’s all purpose glaze, I like their use of cream cheese, it helps mellow the sugar. This variation is just right to go on a flavoured cookie without overpowering it. If the cookie is more of a neutral flavour, there’s room to intensify the glaze with more rosewater.
