Years ago, my friend Will shared with me a cookie recipe that, coming Christmas, I have done over and over again (just last week I did three rounds of it). Will got this recipe from Carol, one of his friends´ mom and I think I would kiss her if I ever met her. As someone that sucks at baking sweets, I am just so grateful that this recipe has few ingredients, is ready in 10 minutes and there´s pretty much nothing (except for overbaking) that you can do to mess it up. My secret add-on? Sea salt. I use a pinch of chunky sea salt and every single cookie that retains a grain of salt has this delicious salt – chocolate flavour that will knock your socks off. Oh and did I mention these cookies are the perfect Christmas present? #biscuChallenge accepted!
(for about 20 cookies)
a cup of flour
a cup of oats
a cup of sugar
a tbsp baking powder
a tsp vanilla sugar
a pinch of sea salt
a bar of chocolate
1. Mix the flour, oats, salt and baking soda in a big bowl while you´re melting the butter.
2. Once the butter is melted (not too hot though, you don´t want to cook the eggs!), mix it with the eggs and the sugar.
3. Combine the dry ingredients with the paste and mix into a dough.
4. Chop the chocolate into really small chunks and mix in with the dough.
