Here in Bologna summer has already gone, and after a couple of weeks of 30-35°C, we got back to November rains. With this horrible weather (cold, wind, storms and rain) I propose you a recipe that you will definitely appreciate, while drinking your tea on the couch (do not forget the blanket).
I tried this recipe long time ago in Canada, but now I propose you my personal and modified one.
I am talking about chocolate cookies, that all Americans, Canadians and people from all over the world love (watch out, they could cause addiction ).
I hope that my friend Gina (born in the States but with Italian origins, blood and smile) to whom is dedicated this post, will approve my version.
And I hope that all of you try it ,and let me know if you liked it.
INGREDIENTS (around 40 cookies):
120 gr. BUTTER
100 gr. BROWN BUTTER
2 tablespoons of HONEY
220 gr. WHEAT FLOUR
½ teaspoon SALT
1 teaspoon VANILLA BAKING POWDER
120 gr. CHOCOLATE CHIPS
Soften butter in the microwave for less than a minute, ten put it in a bowl and beat it with a whisk, while adding brown sugar. Without stopping beating, add one egg and a couple of tablespoons of honey. Stir flower with salt and baking powder and sift it in the bowl.
Add chocolate chips and stir gently. While preheating the oven to 180°C, put the dough in the fridge for 20 minutes (otherwise the cookies will spread out too much with the heat of the oven). Drop cookies by the tablespoon onto a baking pun covered with wax paper.
Bake for 8-10 mins (depends on the oven), then allow the cookies to rest and cool completely befor transferring it in your favorite biscuits box.
Happy weekend and take advantage from bad weather to bake these wonderful cookies!
