I want to say that these cookies are absolutely wonderful! Crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy inside. In my search to find a good recipe for cookies, I found these and they stolen my heart literally! In the original recipe they were filled with caramel, but I didn't want to complicate myself and I decided to cover them just with walnuts, however they have a high calories level and pretty meticulous. Their consistency is soft before you bake them, so you will need an ice cream scoop.
  • 1 cup flour
  • ⅓ cup cocoa
  • 115 g soft butter
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • 1 egg + one egg white separately
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 200 g walnuts / pecans / peanuts
  1. Put flour, cocoa and baking powder in a bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, rub the butter (at room temperature) with the sugar until creamy.
  3. Then add egg yolk, milk and vanilla and rub until it incorporates.
  4. Add flour and cocoa and incorporate with a wooden spoon.
  5. Chill the dough for an hour so we can form more easily biscuits .
  6. Meanwhile chop the walnuts with a rolling pin.They should be neither too big nor too small.
  7. Beat 2 egg whites with a fork, just enough to make some suds.
  8. Preheat oven to 180 ยบ C, prepare a tray with baking sheet and when the dough has cooled, remove it from the refrigerator and begin to form biscuits with the ice scoop, because the dough is soft and sticky.
  9. Put the dough balls in the egg whites and then roll them in crushed nuts. (My nuts were too big, but if you grind them enough, will be easier!)
  10. After I rolled them in the nuts, flatten them slightly by hand and bake them no more than 15 minutes. They will be soft in the middle but do not panic, ithis is the way they should be, and when they cool will have a fluffy consistency, in any case not hard as a regular biscuit.
  11. There will be about 20 cookies. you will love them, I am sure!
