Inspired and motivated by last week’s post I decided to dig out my beloved chocolate cookie recipe, which actually is a sort of heirloom from my former English and history teacher, and after a rather long struggle I was finally alowed to publish it. I have to say that these cookies are a nice reminder of my former school time (when everything was so easy), so I smile every time I make them. I know that they’re not very festive but they’re one of the few kinds I cannot get enough of. They’re definitely nothing for the low-fat longing calorie hunters among us, but I’m convinced that especially now we can treat ourselves to some fine sweets.
- 200g white chocolate
- 2 eggs
- 3 cups of flour
- 1 cup of liquid butter
- 1 cup of unsweetened cocoa
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- 1 cup of white sugar
- 1/2 tsp. of salt
- 1/2 tsp. of baking powder
Mix the brown and white sugar with the liquid butter in one bowl, add the eggs.
In a different bowl mix cocoa, salt, baking powder and flour. Stir with a spoon. Cut the white chocolate into small chunks.
Put the two mixtures together and stir it, then add the chocolate chunks. On a baking tray prepared with baking paper make small piles of about 3cm diameter. In a preheated oven nake the cookies at 180°C hot air for 9 minutes. Don’t worry if they’re not hard yet, they will be after cooling down (with a smooth core!).
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do every time I make them!
