Salut, salut

I adore cookies/biscuits. Ooooh yes! I have my favourites: the chocolate crackle cookies (recipe, in French) or the chocolate hearted biscuits (recipe, in French) and the one I’m blogging about are on the list too! I loved them so much, I’ve done them again 2 days after… They are soooo delicious; chocolate but not too much chocolate, sugar but not too much sugar, they are absolutely per-fect.

_dsc371314 big and 24 small the first time, 40 average the second.

Prep: 5mn — Rest: 30mn — Bake: 7mn each

150g flour, 30g unsugared cocoa powder, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 pinch fleur de sel, 90g sugar, 100g softened butter, 1 egg.

In a mixing bowl, put the dry ingredients: flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, fleur de sel, sugar. Stir them together and do a sort of well. Add the egg. With a hand mixer, start to mix. Add the softened butter and mix really well so everything will be blended. You will have something homogeneous, you will be able to ball it. Put that ball in the fridge for 30mn.

Preheat the oven to 180°. With your rolling pin, roll the dough out (approx 5mm) and with a cookie cutter or just a glass, cut your biscuits. Put them in the oven for 7mn.

Again: thanks to Pinterest! It was when I was looking for christmassy recipes that I found this one. I changed it a bit and here we are! You can add cinnamon or spices to the dough, lemon or orange zests… Everything you want! For the final touch, just add some icing sugar or an icing and you’ll have your Parfaits.

What do you think about this recipe? I can see you yummying ;)

Des bisous
