Ha, it feels good to post another recipe here! I haven’t really had the time to do any baking lately but I’m really looking forward to it.
I made those cookies right before leaving on holiday, took some with me and gave some to my friends and family. Over the years I tried A LOT of cookie recipes. And I think I finally found THE ONE. You can decide to remove or replace the macadamia nuts or add another topping if you feel like it but as long as you use this cookie dough and finish with a pinch of salt, they’ll taste WONDERFUL.
Makes 40 small cookies.
- 200g softened butter
- 125g caster sugar
- 125g brown sugar
- 400g flour
- 1tsp baking powder
- 1tsp vanilla extract
- 2 medium eggs
- 250g chocolate chips
- 50g macadamia nut chips
- 1tsp fleur de sel (french sea salt)
- Firstly, stir the butter and sugar together (caster & brown) until it’s light and creamy.
- Add the two eggs and the vanilla extract. Combine.
- In another bowl, mix the flour and baking powder with the chocolate and the macadamia nuts. You can chop your chocolate and nuts, as mentioned in my last recipe. It tastes better than pre-made chips.
- Combine the content of the two bowls together evenly. Put in the fridge for 30 to 60 minutes.
- When the dough is stiff, put out of the fridge and preheat your oven at 230°.
- You now have to shape small balls of dough and arrange them on your baking tray so they don’t overlap during cooking. I usually use this cookie scoop to do so but you can shape them with your hands.
- Slightly flatten the balls with your fingers and dust them with a pinch of sea salt.
- Put your baking trays in the oven and cook for about 6 minutes. I like to cook the trays one by one so the heat is distributed evenly. They’ll come out very soft (and that is totally okay, no worries) with melted chocolate.
Let them cool down for 5-10 minutes before eating!
Would you try them and tell me what you think? ;)
