Chocolate and hazelnut cookies

January 25th, 2010


These chocolate cookies from Nigel Slater are ludicrously easy to make and after demolishing one too many I realise, ludicrously moreish. The reason for this struck me this morning, its because they taste like brownies in cookies form. Was there ever a better combination?

So why not just make brownies? Well, apart from the obvious, these are much easier to make than brownies are there’s no pressure to get the cooking time just so to ensure perfectly squidgy brownies without drying out the edges. Here you want slightly crisp edges and fudgy centres.

I love the oily sweetness of hazelnuts, and next time will probably up the amount a little bit to make them more nutty. I’m sure other nuts would work just as well too. How about macadamia nuts or walnuts?

Recipe (note: I ended up cooking mine for 12 minutes rather than 10 minutes as Nigel suggests.)
