Low Fat Café Latte and Warm Cookies

Continuing with Martha Stewart’s recipes, here is one all coffee lovers will enjoy. I am an ardent coffee lover and I absolutely loved this simple latte. The second best thing about this coffee…it does not come attached with an expensive price tag :-)

Low Fat Café Latte
Low fat milk (I used fat free)
Freshly brewed coffee decoction
Take the required amount of milk in a glass/microwaveable bottle with a lid and shake well. The milk will become frothy. Remove the lid, place in the microwave and heat to desired temperature (the froth might ooze out if kept for too long). Pour into your coffee mug, along with the decoction, making sure that all the froth comes out of the bottle. Add sugar and enjoy! Bon Appétit.
Now that you have a cup of coffee, I am sure you all would love some cookies to go with it. Try these, you’ll love’em. 

Marble Cookies
All Purpose Flour – ½ cup
Brown sugar – ½ cup (you can use white too)
Cocoa – 2 tsps
Baking powder – ¼ tsp
Salt – ¼ tsp
Butter – ¼ cup (at room temperature/melted)
Milk – 1 tsp
Divide the flour, salt and baking powder into two bowls. Add the cocoa powder to one bowl. Beat the sugar and butter together, add milk and mix well. Divide equally among both bowls and knead to form nice dough. Roll out the dough into two logs (one dark brown and one light brown), cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 300F. Remove the chilled dough, cut into small discs and give them a little press in your palms to make them thin. I made discs with each colour and placed a small ball of the contrasting colour, just to give it a unique look. I also mixed both doughs to form one single log and then cut them into discs to make marble cookies.
The cookies will expand a bit, so place them with a little gap between them. Line the cookie sheet with parchment or just butter the sheet and bake the cookies for 20-21 minutes. They will feel soft when they come out but will harden as they cool. Bon Appétit.
