These cookies are more cakey than my other recipe and so are more suited to tea parties, as they suit well to tea and coffee and are quite filling. I also find that they make a really tasty raw dough in comparison to most cookie recipes if they don't quite get to the oven ;)
- 180g Butter
- 150g Light Brown Sugar
- 1 Egg
- 225g Plain Flour
- 1 Heaped tbsp Cadburys Coco Powder
- 1 Pinch Salt
- 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
- 75g Plain Chocolate
- 75g White Chocolate (chopped)
- 1 Dessert Spoon Milk (chopped)
- Pre-heat oven to 190 degrees C.
- Cream together the butter and sugar until pale (a silicon spatula makes this process much faster), then whisk in the egg.
- Sieve in the flour, coco powder, salt and baking powder and mix into a dough. Don't be afraid to use your hands as long as you don't mind mess. If your dough won't combine use a dessert spoon (no more) of milk to help kneed the mixture into one ball.
- When you have a smooth dough kneed in the chocolate, you can always use 150g of milk chocolate if you prefer.
- Drop dessert spoon sized portions (well spaced from each other as the mixture spreads when cooking) onto a baking sheet greased well with vegetable oil.
- Bake for 12 minutes until the mixture has spread and set.
- Once removed from oven, leave to cool on the baking tray or five to ten minutes, once slightly hardened transfer to a cooling rack.
These cookies cook so fast making them very convenient, and they also freeze down well if you make too many or wish to keep the aside or another occasion :) You can also experiment by using extracts in the mix such as orange or vanilla or experiment with the quantity or type of chocolate to suit your own tastes :)
