It's Saturday. Have a cookie.
Cut cookies like these are so quick and easy to make - you can easily make a lot of them, and the freeze well. Use a really good quality milk chocolate for these, one that you like to eat, as it'll definitely be dominant in the finished cookies.
Milk Chocolate Cookies
makes about 40
170 g butter, at room temperature
45 g white sugar
45 g raw sugar (or brown sugar)
3 tbsp golden syrup
300 g all-purpose flour
1,5 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla sugar (or 1/2 tsp vanilla extract)
150 g milk chocolate, chopped
Whisk the butter with both sugars until pale and fluffy. Add the golden syrup, and then all remaining ingredients. Mix into a supple dough.
Shape logs (in my case, three), that are about 2-3 cm thick. Place on a baking sheet, and bake at 175°C for about 20 minutes. They will start to look cracked on top - this is normal.
Leave to cool for a few minutes, and then cut into 2 cm thick cookies, diagonally. Leave to cool completely on the sheet
