Choc chilli cookies
Here is my recipe for chocolate and chilli cookies, you can also chuck in some cherrys for a bit of extra sweetness if you like, it works really well.
1 large free range egg
115g sifted plain flour
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking powder
115g butter, at room temperature
100g soft brown sugar
80g of your fave choc, broken into chunks
then depending on how hot u want it:
1/2 to 1 tsp chilli powder
1/2 to 3 fresh chillis …chopped and deseeded.
put all of the ingredients apart from the chocolate in your food processor and whizz up until smooth and creamy then mix in the chocolate chunks.
place the dough on some cling film and wrap up into a saussage shape, about 3-5 cm in diameter (depends on how many cookies you want to make and how big you want them)
place dough in freezer for half an hour. While the dough is chilling pre heat your oven to 170 degrees c.
when the dough is chilled, slice with a sharp knife and place on some grease proof paper on a baking tray making sure you leave plenty of space between the cookies as they will double in size.
bake in the oven for 8-10mins until golden, allow to cool a bit before eating as they are a bit too crumbly when hot.
