Episode 002- George Orwell : Boot-Print Forever Cookies

The recipe for Boot-Print Forever Cookies was inspired by the infamous quote from Nineteen Eighty-Four: "If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever." 
Crumbly with a hint of peanut butter creaminess makes these thumbprint cookies luxurious despite the dystopic inspiration.



We chose fig butter to fill them with, but you should feel free to use apple butter, jam, chocolate, or even more peanut butter if you're THAT into the flavor.

Ingredients

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 c coconut oil
2 tbsp almond milk
2 tbsp peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup fig or apple butter

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Beat peanut butter and coconut oil until light and fluffy, then stir in brown sugar. Add milk and vanilla extract. 
  3. Sift the flour and baking powder in a separate bowl. Add to wet mixture in three batches. Stir until dough forms. 
  4. Roll into a ball and scoop 1 packed tablespoon ball at a time to form cookies. Flatten the cookies with the bottom of a glass, making an indentation with your thumb or a spoon. 
  5. Bake for 8 minutes. The indentations will have puffed, so press them back down. Bake an additional 2 to 3 minutes, until golden. 
  6. Heat apple/fig butter and spoon onto the cookies. Optional: top with powdered sugar. 
  7. Let cool completely before storing in airtight containers.
