For a week or so, I´ve been longing for something sweet and homemade, but the inspiration to bake didn´t announce itself until yesterday. 😉 I´ve been either busy, tired, lazy or I simply couldn´t be bothered with shining the kitchen, in order to start baking. It so happens that Matpaabordet has many easy-to-make recipes and since I haven´t been disappointed yet, I thought I´d try these cookies. Husband and neighbours applauded my effort and quality checked the result. 😉
Around 20 cookies
- 200 g dark chocolate, chopped
- 100 g light chocolate, chopped
- 40 g butter
- 2 eggs
- 150 g sugar
- 1 tea spoon vanilla essence
- 35 g flour
- 1/4 tea spoon baking powder
Oven temperature 180 C
Melt the butter and the dark chocolate in the microwave oven.
Whip the eggs and sugar to a meringue. This will take aproximately 10 minutes with a kitchen aid. Add the flour and the baking powder. Pour the melted chocolate mix in the bowl. Last, add the chopped chocolate. Leave the dough to rest for 10 minutes, it will thicken a little.
Important to lick the whole thing clean while you´re at it! 😉
Use an ice-cream spoon to form cookies out the dough and place them on a grease-proof sheet. I managed to squeeze 16 cookies and had to bake 4 more on the second round.
Set them in a pre-heated oven and bake for 8-10 minutes. Leave them to cool down for 10 minutes. Serve them as they are with coffee or milk. Alternatively, you can use them to make an ice-cream sandwich. Haven´t tried making ice-cream myself, but I hear it´s pretty easy and oh so delicious! 😉
