Chocolate Rose Petal Cookies

Labels: { }

Rose baking is nothing new, however. The practice of using roses in cooking dates back centuries. Roses, in fact, have been used extensively in Middle Eastern cuisines to enhance the taste of foods and beverages. Using edible flowers for culinary endeavors is gaining a wider audience, and roses, with their subtle, sweet taste, make a pleasing recipe ingredient. Correspondingly, rose recipes have become popular. Suite101: How to Cook With Roses

  • 110 g Butter at room temperature
  • 60 g Icing sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 Egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 200 g Cake flour
  • 1 tbsp Rose petals
  • Chocolate glaze
  1. Stir together flour and baking powder. Beat together the butter and sugar until light and creamy. Gradually add in the egg and beat until well-combined.
  2. Add in the sifted flour mixture and rose petals. Cover the batter in greaseproof wrapper and chill for 1 hour.
  3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls and place 2 inch apart on the tray lined with a baking paper. Lightly flatten them with a spoon.
  4. Bake in the middle part of the preheated 175C/350F oven for about 18-20 minutes. Remove to wire racks and cool completely. Dip with the chocolate glaze.

Hi Angie - thanks for the information on the rose cookies! I didn't realize this had been going on for centuries! A pity edible and dried roses are so expensive here - would love to use them more often and maybe one day make cookies like yours.

Hi angie, love to try yr cookies. May i know where can i buy the edible rose petal.
Thank you. siti

Angie's Recipes 17/3/10 06:42

siti: I think they can be found either in Asian stores or local drug stores. Sometimes you can even get them in the tea shops.
