Chocolate and Walnut Cookies

As promised, here is the second recipe for the cookie I made before Christmas, Chocolate and Walnut Cookies:

Ingredients

  • 250g of Plain Flour
  • 1/2 tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp of Salt
  • 170g of Butter
  • 200g of Brown Sugar
  • 100g of Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Egg Yolk
  • 200g of White Chocolate Chunks
  • 200g of Walnuts (crushed up)
Chocolate and Walnut Cookies

Method 

  1. Preheat the oven to 170C
  2. Line a baking tray with baking paper
  3. Sift the dry ingredients together and set aside
  4. In a bowl cream together the butter, brown sugar and caster sugar
  5. When smooth beat in the eggs until light and creamy
  6. Mix in the flour mixture gradually and combine together
  7. Finally add the chocolate chunks and walnuts and mix through
  8. Spoon dough onto the baking tray – I used a heaped tablespoon for each – do not flatten
  9. Make sure that each cookie is a few centimetres apart to allow for baking as they will spread
  10. Bake for around 13-15 minutes
  11. Once cooked take out of the oven and leave on the baking tray to cool

If you are a fan of cookies, these were also really yummy, the best thing about these recipes is that you can actually freeze the batter too. Just roll it into a tube and wrap in cling film, then when you want a cookie of 5, just cut it into slices and bake as above, isn´t that just a genius idea?

It was really nice to be baking again, I really need to find time to do it more this year, maybe I will get the baby involved too! Is there anything you would like to see me do? As always, let me know in the comments.
