This is for all you cookie monsters out there. Usually when I bake something Richard tries to stay away from it because he is trying to be healthy, but the poor thing doesn't realize that it will be a very difficult thing to do as long as he's with me. But let's just keep that between us shall we.
When I made these cookies he hasn't been able to keep his hands away from them. Everytime I look at the cookie bowl, I can slowly, but steadily start to see the bottom of it since he's always grabbing a cookie. That means that the cookies are á huge success, trust me! They are chocolate-y, soft but still crunchy, very easy to make and very addicting, so bake at your own risk.
- 4 dl flour
- 1 ½ dl cocoa powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ¼ tsp salt
- 3 dl sugar
- 150 g butter, room temperature
- 1 egg
- Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl. First mix in the butter and then the egg. The dough should come together in a mass.
- Take out a form/plate you can refrigerate. Scoop out a teaspoon amount of dough and roll them into balls using your hands and place on the plate/form. Refrigerate for 10 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 190° and place two baking trays with baking sheet on in the oven.
- When the dough has been in the fridge for 10 minutes, move the balls on the baking tray, and make sure there is enough space between them since they will rise much. Bake in the middle of the oven for 6-8 minutes, or until they start to crack on the top. Let cool on the trays.
- OPTIONAL: You can make a cookie sandwich with these ones. Here's the recipe for the filling:
- 25 g butter, room temperature
- 1 tbsp cream cheese
- 3 dl powdered sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla sugar
- Mix everything together in a bowl.
- Put the filling in a piping bag and squeeze out a teaspoon amount of filling onto one cookie and then press another cookie on top.
