Christmas and New Year are definitely my favourite holidays. Hustle and bustle time. Snowing outside, everybody is in rush, searching presents and gifts for the loved ones. Unfortunately in the UAE I can’t feel such wonderful emotions in full, but I can bring the festive mood and flavours to my home by baking some winter treats.
These little cookies are so rich in chocolate, that could give little more warmth for the family tea-time. Adding some spices-cloves, cinnamon or cardamom and a small hazelnut or pistachio inside is also great! 😉
And if you pack them in a little Xmas box – it might be amazing gift for a friend.
50g/2 Tbsps sugar
60g dark chocolate (60-70% cacao)
100g/4-5 tbsp flour
1 Tbsp butter
Icing sugar – to cover the cookies
Melt the chocolate and butter together in a bowl under the simmering water, gently stir.
Whisk the egg and sugar together in another bowl until light and fluffy.
Carefully fold in the chocolate mixture, then add the flour and combine.
Scoop the cookie batter with a teaspoon, shape small balls and roll them in plate with icing sugar.
Place on a baking tray and bake for 9-10 minutes in a preheated oven 180C/360F.
Enjoy the holiday! 😀
