These apricot and nutmeg cookie buns, with a sourdough base are a pleasant change from your typical cookie. They have no added sugar, relying solely on the apricot and fruit juice concentrate for sweetness.
Give them a go and let me know what you think.
Step 1: Ingredients
- 2 C flour
- 80g Sourdough Starter
- 15 dried apricots chopped
- 1/2 C fruit juice concentrate
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 C cold water (just enough to allow it to mix to a smooth ball)
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cider vinegar
1/2 C prune butter (See Step 5 of our LOL Biscuit Bun)
Mix together the flour, starter, apricots, cinnamon, nutmeg, and water into a dough. We've done this by hand on a clean bench top.
Step 2: Leave It Awhile...
Cover your dough with a cloth and leave it so the sourdough can work through the mixture. I suggest you make the dough in the morning and continue with the recipe that evening, or leave overnight and continue next day.
Step 3: Doug(h), Meet Pru(ne)
Place the prune butter in a clean mixing bowl, add the dough, baking soda and mix together.
Then add the cider vinegar and mix.
Step 4: Getting Ready to Bake
Take out cookie-sized portions of mixture and with wet hands roll into a ball and place on your oven tray. Use a fork to flatten the dough.
Place in an oven at 180C (360F) for 30-40 minutes or until cooked.
Step 5: Cooked Cookies
These cookies taste great. The apricot and nutmeg add a very pleasant flavor while there is a nice vanilla undertone. Plus you pick up the benefits of sourdough!
