Hey guys, it’s a Ro! Welcome to another Nerdy Nummies. Today I am dressed up like Te Fiti because I got so many requests from you guys to make something from the movie Moana again, So that’s exactly what we’re gonna be doing today. Today We are gonna be making Heart of Te Fiti sugar cookies and what I really love about this recipe is that there’s very little decoration. We’re gonna make the dough, color it, assemble it in a really cool Way kind of making a swirl cookie and then once they go on the oven and bake They’re ready to serve so there’s no decoration after you bake. Let’s get started! The recipe that we’re gonna be making today is one of my favorite It’s called a Sablé recipe so the things you’ll need will be a 3/4 cup sugar, 3/4 cup butter, 2 eggs we’ll only be using the yolks, 2 cups of all-purpose flour 2, teaspoons of vanilla extract, 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt, Half a teaspoon of electric green food coloring and half a teaspoon of green food coloring. Now let’s put it all together! First up to making these cookies is cream together your butter and sugar with an electric hand mixer Mix together until light and fluffy. That’s what it should look like now add your eggs. Remember we just want the yolks let the egg white drip into the bowl boop-boop boop-boop boop-boop boop-boop boop-boop Put ’em in the bowl, boop. Boo-boo-boo-boo-boo and into the bowl again using an electric hand mixer mix on a medium speed until the yolks are incorporated. This is starting to look really good, and it’s about to smell really good add your vanilla extract and mix together. After the vanilla add all of your flour and Salt keep mixing until the dough comes together You don’t want any streaks remaining, and this dough will get really crumbly, but then it will come together. Come together! Dough is ready time to add your color. I’m gonna be adding a little bit of electric green. Then mix up until the color is even now divide your dough in half We’re gonna wrap it up tight using some food safe plastic wrap. Now pop in the fridge for 10 minutes while we dye the second half of our dough a darker green. We’re gonna add some more color. This is just regular green. Okay, so this one’s darker now It’s the second half of our dough and again Just like before wrap it up tight with a little bit of plastic food wrap and pop it in the fridge to chill Once the dough has chilled we’re gonna roll it out to a rectangle shape in front of me I’ve got a piece of parchment paper so that it won’t stick to the surface here we go Yes! and give it a roll my natural instincts want to roll this into a circle But you want to roll it into a rectangle shape just keep rolling your dough Slow and steady until you get it pretty flat. It’s about an eighth of an inch thick this is ready now I’m gonna pop this in the fridge to chill while we roll out the dark green dough. Yes! You don’t need to put the dark green dough into the fridge But take out your light green dough and we’re gonna place it on Top of our dark green dough we’re gonna stack them then cut off the excess then we roll. It’s pretty cool Pick up the dough with the parchment because the dough is very Thin and we’re just gonna lay it on top. Go for it! That wasn’t the most graceful, but you just want them to line up as best you can. Then using your hands press down Boop-boop-boop-boop-boop and give them a light roll, so they stick together peel off the parchment I have a little ruler here cut an 8 by 10 Rectangle and trim the excess dough we’ve got an 8 by 10 rectangle now time to turn this into a swirl cookie turn the dough, woo, so it’s facing the long way and Starting at one end use the parchment paper to start to curl. You want to roll the cookie dough as tightly as you can We’ve done it. We’ve made a two-tone cookie log. Take a look. Let’s look at it. Also, kinda looks like a cookie burrito mmm! Wrap it up tight and some food safe plastic wrap then pop into the Freezer we really want this cookie dough to get firm for about 10 minutes. Once your cookie dough has Frozen time to cut into slices in front of me. I’ve got a cutting board I also have the ruler once again because we want to cut them a quarter inch Thick this kind of reminds me of the cookie logs You’ll find at the store And they’ll have a little design in the middle like a little pumpkin or a Christmas tree and all you have to do is Cut the dough and then bake up We’ve got all of our cookies on the baking sheet time for our final decoration step I am using a lollipop stick to make it look a little bit more textured like the stone, the Heart of Te Fiti. I’m gonna be pressing down six times into the dough starting at the center. One Two Three Four Five Six. Then do this to all of your cookies. Our cookies are ready to bake pop these in the oven at 325 degrees and bake for about 12 to 15 minutes. And ta-da~! There you have it, here are the heart of Te Fiti cookies that we made today using a delicious Sablé Recipe which is one of my favorite cookies in the entire world.
