How to make it

  • Making the Cookie dough:
  • 1)Cover the outside of a 9” 5” loaf pan with foil. Spray with nonstick vegetable cooking spray.
  • 2)In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder, almonds and salt. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer set on medium, beat margarine or butter, sugar, egg and vanilla extract until light and fluffy. Add flour mixture; beat until a dough forms, about 2 minutes.
  • Shaping the Cookie Bowl:
  • 1)Preheat oven to 350º. Roll dough out to 1/8-inch thickness. Using a 1 ½ -inch cookie cutter, cut out shapes.
  • 2)Cover pan with cutouts, overlapping and pressing them slightly.
  • Baking the Cookie Bowl:
  • 1)Bake cookie bowl until edges are firm, about 15 minutes. Transfer pan to a wire rack and cool completely.
  • 2)To remove the cookie bowl, carefully lift it off the foil-lined loaf pan. Remove foil.
  • 3)Now arrange an assortment of cookies in the cookie bowl. Cover loosely with plastic wrap until ready to serve.
  • As a Gift:
  • Wrap with colorful cellophane paper and tie with ribbon.
  • Good idea: Bake a few smaller bowls and serve with ice cream for a fun treat or as smaller gifts.
  • Diabetic Friendly
  • Note: Freezer Option: Wrap the bowl in an airtight enclosure of plastic wrap; store in freezer for up to 1 month. Thaw bowl, wrapped, at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
