Chocolate and Caramel Cookies With A Hint Of Salt

When I posted this Salted Caramel recipe last week, I promised the best cookie recipe you can ever make. This happened on a rainy weekend a few weeks ago. It’s a must-try for all you cookie-lovers! It is guaranteed to make people lick the caramel off all spoons (like my dad) and sneak into the kitchen when they’re on a diet to eat 4 in a row (like my mom). 😀

How to make it:

In a small bowl, lightly beat together the egg and the vanilla with a fork

In a food processor, mix the flour, the cocoa powder, the salt and the sugar

Cut the butter into small pieces and add it to the processor while it’s still running. Blend until the butter is in very small pieces

Add the vanilla and egg mixture and blend for 1 minute

Remove the dough from the food processor, shape it into a flat disk, cover it with plastic wrap and place it in the fridge for 3 hours

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius

Line 2 oven trays with baking sheets

On the kitchen top, lay wax paper, place the dough on it then top it with another wax paper and start rolling the dough until flat. Make small round disks and place them on the baking sheets

Lurpak Cook's Range, Recipes, Sweet 2 comments on Coffee Cake Topped With Caramelized Toffee Nuts

Coffee Cake Topped With Caramelized Toffee Nuts

I’ve been thinking lately about the cake recipes I already master (example lemon cake, fluffy chocolate cake and baba au rhum), and decided it was time to add a few newcomers to the list. So I’ve been trying out new ones, this one included. I wasn’t expecting it to be an immediate success but it definitely entered the list of possible cakes to bake when in need of a warm snack.

The preparation doesn’t take much time, but it does need baking time so be patient.
