I haven’t baked cookies in a long time. When I say long, I mean about two weeks. And this time they’re not healthy. There is nothing healthy about them, except that they are home made. But they are so damn good.They were created one cold spring evening when I needed to heat my apartment a bit. My roommate was watching football. Football. It is so boring … And when I’m bored, I start counting the content of my ‘pantry’ in my head and making combinations. Cocoa, butter, hazelnuts, maybe a little chocolate, cinnamon … mmmm … I could almost smell them. They were baked in 20 minutes ;)
You’ill see, you will be amazed. Soft as they emerge from the oven. Soft even after they cool. And soft after a few days as wll (at least I think, we did not wait for a few days to try them). Very, very nice cookies. My roommate says they’re the best ones he’s ever eaten. You should trust him :)
- 1 egg
- 100 g of sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 60g melted butter
- 100 g flour
- 20 g of cocoa
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 60g toasted hazelnuts, coarsely ground
- Preheat the oven to 200 ° C and line a pan with parchment paper.
- Whisk the egg and sugar together until they are white and thick, add vanilla and butter and give this a little stir. Then add the flour, cinnamon, cocoa and baking powder and mix with a spatula. Finally mix the roughly ground hazelnuts.
- With a spoon shape rounded piles of the batter directly in the pan, you'll need about one tablespoon of the mixture for an individual cookie. If you are not lazy like me, you can put the batter in a freezer bag and make round shapes. Leave some space between the biscuits.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes, they need to be a little soft in the middle when you take them out. Leave to cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy the soft, tasty cookies. Bon appetit!
