WELCOME TO HISTORIC ROCHELLE HEIGHTS

“You can’t help but feel as though you have stepped back in time when you stroll the treelined streets of the Rochelle Park and Rochelle Heights neighborhoods. Many rambling homes with Victorian detail, an abundance of public open space, and wide boulevards with expansive front lawns render a quiet atmosphere reminiscent of a bygone era. That’s just what was planned for this community when it was conceived over 100 years ago.”

These words echo the beautiful reasons why we love calling Rochelle Heights home. From family friendly events, to an evening out for the adults, to the maintenance of the one-of-a-kind clay tennis courts, we are here to help make this already beautiful place we call home, stay and become an even more welcoming enjoyable place to live, laugh and love. We are not just a neighborhood. We are a community!

December 2022 Recipe

Submitted by our favorite RHA Cheerleader, Jilliann Elliott.

Jilliann says these crinkle cookies from Quick-Shop-&-Prep 5 Ingredient Baking makes her want to make them every time she thinks of them. We don't know if this is good for our waistlines but they sure sound perfect to team up with some hot cocoa and snuggle in with on a cold winter day.

INGREDIENTS

  • 10 tablespoons butter, sliced
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

DIRECTIONS

  1. Place the butter in a saucepan. Cook over medium heat until the butter melts and begins to foam. Continue to cook, whisking (or swirling the pan) frequently until the butter becomes an amber color, this should take 2-3 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and allow it to cool slightly.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
  3. Add the granulated and brown sugar into the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.  Pour the cooled butter into the sugars and mix on medium speed to combine. Add in the eggs and vanilla, mixing just until smooth.
  4. Turn the mixer to low and slowly add in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Cover the mixing bowl and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350°F
  6. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchement paper. Set aside.
  7. Place the powdered sugar in a shallow bowl. Divide the chilled dough into 1- tablespoon sized balls. Roll each ball into the powdered sugar and place onto the prepared pan, about 2- inches apart.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are set.
  9. Allow the cookies to cool on the pan for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Note: The original recipe calls for a baking time of 18-22. This shorter time results in a soft, chewy cookie. If you prefer a crunchier cookie, bake longer.
