Chewy Almond Chocolate Cookies

Friday, December 25, 2009

I have been getting super duper lazy in writing my blog nowadays especially in the month of December. All the post seem to be postdated. Sigh, wonder when can I get rid of the lazy bug mushrooming in me. So back to my first cookie post. I decided to bake it as lil pressie to be given to friends and colleagues. This cookie recipes is not the type for the crunchy texture cookies but they are rather chewy and soft. I got the recipes from Recipezaar and modified it a bit.

Butter and sugar.

Flour and cocoa powder mixed.

The cookie batter - a teaspoonful each.

Freshly baked. Appetising.

Can't resist the temptation; have a bite on them. Slurp.....


1 1/4 cups butter, softened
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla essence
2 cups flour
3/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups chocolate chips
100g of almond flakes

  1. Pre-heat oven at 180 Celsius.
  2. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat well.
  4. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt; gradually blend into creamed mixture.
  5. Stir in chocolate chips and almond flakes.
  6. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet.
  7. Bake 8-9 minutes. (Do not over bake; cookies will be soft. They will puff while baking and flatten while cooling.).
