cookies, cookies, cookies!!
At this cold winter, we really need buttery cookies to bring us some warm.
I use to make this kind of cookies in winter, and really enjoy it with a very hot cup of tea.. I will write here the main recipe which is a chocolate one but I created another kind using the same recipe but adding very fine grinded peanuts instead of cocoa powder.. Here you are the main recipe:-
Chocolate fork biscuits:
125 g. butter softened.
60 g. caster sugar.
125 self raising flour.
30 g.cocoa powder.
pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 190. Beat butter, adding sugar gradually, untill light and fluffy. sift flour with cocoa powder and salt and stir into mixture.
Shape into walnut- sized balls and place on greased baking trays.
Flatten each to 5 cm.circle with a fork dipped in cold water , stroking in one direction only. Bake for 7-8 mn. or untill firmed.
As a change in flavor , I swap the cocoa powder with fine grinded peanut.
Try it , you will never stop making it, it is sooo easy and yummy!!!!
