*nerdy nummies theme song plays* Hey guys, it’s Ro, welcome to another nerdy nummies! Today I have a very special guest! LOOK! It’s my friend Sam!

Not only are you really good at music, but What else?
He’s a really good cook, you guys! Thank you!
I went over for dinner, it was amazing, I got so many requests from you guys to make something Zelda themed So today we are going to be making Rupee cookies But we’re going to make a few different recipes, because rupees come in different colors And I wanted cute lil flavours to match! *Both in Unison* Let’s get started! The things you will need for the basic recipe will be: 2 & 3/4ths Cups of all purpose flour (plain flour) 1/2 a cup of sugar 2/3 Cup of butter 1/4 Cup of honey 1 egg 1 Tsp Baking powder 1/2 Tsp Salt 1/2 Tsp of almond extract and 1/2 Tsp of vanilla extract! Freeze dried blueberries, freeze dried raspberries, and some matcha green tea powder And to cut out our cookies we’re gonna use these really cool Rupee cookie cutters! Yeah! I found these online, so I’ll put a link down below if you guys wanna go check them out! Before we start, I just wanna remind you guys that all of the ingredients that we have here Is enough dough for one recipe, and we are going to be making this three different times because we’re going to be flavoring each dough recipe! One will be blueberry, one will be raspberry, and one will be matcha! Now lets put it ALL together! The first thing that we’re gonna do is grind up our freeze dried berries into powder! (Ooh!) We don’t need to do this with the matcha because it’s already a powder There’s no like, matcha berry?
Ya, No OKAY! So I’m gonna go first because I have the lighter color And if red gets in the blue a little bit, we’re okay Oh lemme just have a- Ooh, here’s a big one! Let’s just really double check, quality control, *om nom nom* These are gonna be GOOD
Yeah, these are gonna be really good! I’ll pour it in here! Okay Sam, hit the button! *raspberries blending*
*oohing and giggling* It’s powerful!
I feel- I feel very powerful right now Now we just measure 4 TBSP of our Raspberry powder! Okay, now we’re gonna grind up our blueberries, the same way OOH! 1, 2, 3, GO!
*Blueberries blending* Woah! I can’t see in there!
It sounds good Now Sam, you’re only going to scoop one TBSP of blueberries, because it’s such a dark color Now we’ve got our two powders, and we’re gonna set these to the side and start making cookies! YEAAAH! I dunno about you Sam, but I love matcha, so I wanted to start by making the matcha cookie recipe first And in Zelda, the green Rupees are the lowest ranking So we’re gonna start at the bottom and then work our way up to the top bling Rupee! First thing that we’re gonna do is whisk together our dry ingredients in a medum bowl over here And Sam, would you whisk for me?
I will do my best, but you’ll have to instruct me in the proper, techniques
You know, like this, nothing too crazy We wanna keep it in the bowl (Looks good!) Pour in the flour, then we’re gonna add a little baking powder salt, our Macha powder, and just whisk together til it’s well combined, You want it to look like one color Next we’re going to cream together our sugar, butter and honey mix together until it’s light and fluffy! Now we are going to add our egg and our two extracts So I’ll have you add both our vanilla and almond extracts to the bowl *inhaling and moaning*
We’re about to get tasty up in here! We’re going to add the full egg *egg cracking* try not to get any shells in there Yeah I’m glad you’re doing that *Blatant lies* Yeah I never- I never get any shells [in there] [Pause here and screenshot for great reaction images] Just keep mixing ’til it’s well combined! Okay, so we’ve got our wet ingredients, we’ve got the dry ingredients, what do we do? Just put em in?
Yeah! We’re just going to pour all of our dry ingredients into our big bowl with the wet ingredients Just mix together until it’s well combined! Okay, what are we doing with this? Because if we don’t do something with this soon I’m just gonna eat it all Same Feeling! So right now, we’re gonna divide it in half with the spatula, I’m gonna use your muscles Okay!
See, this is why I had you over, I just need your muscles! Story of my life! And then scoop half of it onto this piece of food-safe plastic wrap I’m im going to just shape it into a disc, then we’re just gonna wrap it up tight our dough is ready to chill, we’re going to pop this in the refrigerator for one hour! For our second batch of cookies, we are going to be making the blueberry blue cookie Over here we just finished creaming our butter, sugar and honey And now we’re going to be adding some additional ingredients the vanilla and almond extract I’m getting very good at this!
Yeah! Then I’m going to be adding the egg, like before, with just a drop of blue food coloring dye! Go ahead, Sam!
Is this going to turn blue? Hopefully!
Ooooooh! Over here is the dry ingredients, all mixed together And instead of adding the matcha we added the 1TBSP of dried blueberry Pour all of our dry ingredients into our wet, mix together until it’s well combined! Now we’re gonna do the same thing with this dough, we’re going to divide it in half, wrap it up, and throw it in the fridge! Now we get to move on to our last batch of cookies! The red ones! *oohing and giggling* So again, over here in a big mixing bowl, we have creamed together our butter, sugar and honey And now we are going to be adding these ingredients! This is the last time I get to do this, I’m so sad Then we’re going to be adding one egg, and Sam, I’m going to have you do the crack! is it- I’m graduating, and I get egg responsibilities now, okay Just crack it, throw it in there, you got this! I’m just going to be adding a little bit of red food coloring dye to make to cookie pop in color! Hey! Mix it! Do I look like Navi?
You do! Hey! Mix it! She’s like mad, she’s like “Gurl, that’s my job!” Okay, I think I have an idea of what we’re doing next I think, just taking a wild guess here-
Okay, wild guess! We’re going to add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients And then mix it all up Hey! Mix it! And one last time, divide your dough in half, wrap ’em up and put ’em in the refrigerator to chill Alright, so our dough is done chilling, now what do we do? We are going to unwrap these and roll out our dough! But first, have you heard of baking flare(!)? I have- Do we get to do it? Yeah! We’ve never done two baking flares at the same time 1, 2, 3!
*multiple slapping noises as the dough hits the counter* We did it!
That was pretty good! Sam, could you sprinkle a lil bit of flour on the countertop For the rest of the process I was trying to keep the flour in the bowl and now i get to break all the rules!
You can just let loose! we’ll put our dough right in the middle and sprinkle some flour evenly on top, like that You wanna try? Can I?
Yeah! Okay! You just go short, short, short, short, We’re going to roll the dough about a quarter inch (0.6cm) thick But it can be a generous quarter! Now you’re gonna take your cookie cutters, and we’re going to cut out a bunch of gem shaped cookies and place them onto our baking tray! Then you’re gonna do this to the rest of your dough! Just cut ’em out! Allright, we are almost completely done, We have all three of these cookie colors laid out on these trays Now… How do we cook them? We are gonna pop these in the oven at 350F (176C) and bake for about 9 to 10 minutes And then we can eat ’em all! That’s the best part
Yeah! ♫ TA- DAAAAAAAAH! ♫ Here are the Zelda Rupee cookies that we made today We made three different recipes For the green cookies, we made matcha sugar cookies For the blue, we made blueberry sugar cookies And for our red rupees, the most valuable, we have raspberry sugar cookies Yum Yum Yum Yum Yum!
