【通信講座】リスニング力を鍛える週1トレーニング(第3回目解説):Nigella’s Christmas Chocolate Cookie


サマリーの例:Nigella’s Christmas chocolate cookies are very easy to make. The ingredients are unsalted butter, cocoa, caster sugar, flour,  bicarb and baking powder. Put the ingredients in a bowl, mix in a food processor and you will have a very soft dough. There is no need to roll out the dough. Just pinching up with your fingers and rolling it into a walnut-sized ball. Bake in the oven on medium heat for about a quarter of an hour.  The cookies will have cracks in them, but she likes it because it looks homemade and comforting.  For making glaze, mix icing sugar, cocoa powder and a little bit of vanilla with boiling water in a sauce pan and heat it on the stovetop.  When the ingredients are melted, the glaze is ready. Pour this over the cookies and then sprinkle colorful red, green and white pinprick dots on top. You can use any toppings you like.
