Last December, I gifted an adapted version of my old Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe.
It was a gift in a jar. And it was a spur of the moment change to the original recipe as I tried to properly fill the whole jar (without simply doubling the recipe – where’s the fun in that?).
The gift looked just lovely. And the cookies? They turned out to be the best!
Müesli, Hazelnut & Turkish Delight Cookies
550 g butter, softened
300 g white sugar
15 ml vanilla extract
250 g all-purpose flour
55 g cocoa powder
5 g baking soda
2 g salt
335 g semisweet chocolate chips
60 g chopped hazelnuts
80 g Muesli
30 g Rahat Locoum (Turkish Delight)
Preheat oven to 175 degrees C.
In large bowl, beat butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt; stir into the butter mixture until well blended. Mix in the chocolate chips, chopped hazelnuts, Muesli and the Turkish Delight. (Add another egg and/or butter if needed.)
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or just until set. Cool slightly on the cookie sheets before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
