When I started writing down text for this recipe, I was wondering how am I going to call it. I was thinking in superlatives. Best, quick to make, tasty, simple. I really hate clickbait-y names though.
Nevertheless. I think once you try this very basic recipe, you won’t look back. Our household of two does not eat a lot of sweets. But the whole batch only lasted us for three days. However you can store them for much longer than that, if your will is stronger than ours.
Ingredients (16 cookies)
- 100 g butter
- 200 g caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspon vanilla paste or extract
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 generous pinch of salt
- 200 g all-purpose flour
- 100 g chopped chocolate or chocolate chips
- 100 g chopped walnuts
The cookies are going to taste the best when you get your hands dirty. When you use your hands, your dough will be nice and soft to the touch. First mix butter and sugar. Once you create this paste, add your egg, vanilla and generous pinch of salt. Mix well. Add in chopped chocolate and walnuts. At this stage your dough will be extremely sticky, but your ingredients evenly distributed. Add flour and baking soda as your final ingredients. Form a dough ball.
Roll the dough into a giant sausage and use knife to create around 16 pieces of dough. In my case it turned out to be 18. Or 9 per batch. Form each piece into a ball, press in with your hand and then transfer onto cookie sheet. Make sure to leave plenty of space between individual cookies, Otherwise your cookies may stick together and you will endup with one giant cookie mess. Bake the cookies for around 12 to 15 minutes at 180° C (350° F).
