Backroads (Redux) – Lonely The Brave
It’s been a while seen I haven’t been here but, I couldn’t find time to translate the recipes in English. Here I am now, I have plenty of time ahead. The other day I posted the perfect cookies‘ recipe and I won’t change what I said, it really is the perfect recipe but today, let me introduce you to another one, one that looks healthier thanks to the apple. I said “looks” because… duh, cookies anyway! The recipe is a really good because it’s not a common flavour.
A dozen. 250g plain flour, 7g baking powder, 1tbsp baking soda, 1 pinch of salt, 110g soft butter slightly salted, half a vanilla pod, 65g brown sugar, 65g caster sugar, 1 egg, 2 apples, 60g chocolate chips.
Prep: 5/10mn — Bake: 10/12mn each
Mix the flour with the baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl.
In another bowl, whisk the butter with the sugars and the vanilla pod. Add the egg and whisk again. Then add the first bowl and with a wooden spoon, mix.
Put baking paper on a baking tray. What I do to have equal cookies is taking cookie dough with a tbsp and roll into balls. They are not perfect but, I am not looking for perfection. So, you can use my technique, or yours of course. Put cookie dough balls on your baking tray but leave a little space between them. Put your baking tray and the rest of the dough in the fridge while your oven is preheating, 10mn 180C.
While you’re waiting for your oven to preheat, chip your chocolate and dice your apple. Take back your baking tray, flatten your balls a little and add chocolate chips and apple dices. In the oven for 10 to 12mn, watch them, you don’t want them to burn. Let them cool 5mn before you remove them from the baking tray.
You might have chocolate chips and apple dices left, honestly I just ate them and had no problem with it. I’m like “oh, it’s fine, apple are healthy anyway”… and my mind gets rid of the chocolate. Anyway, I always say that a balanced diet is healthy and yummy, apples are healthy, chocolate is yummy… Mission done!
