Hazelnut choc-chunk cookies

I’m a big fan of ‘Great British Bake Off’. Whilst I generally don’t watch TV, this show is a definite exception - every week I try to curl up on the sofa, cup of peppermint tea or custard in hand, to drool over the week’s delicious creations.

Inspired by the show, I decided to do some baking one cold Sunday afternoon.

I found a simple-looking recipe on BBC’s Good Food website. I did check out some of the vegan versions but there were so many ingredients that I didn’t have in my cupboards that I decided that they could be a future project!

So I assembled the ingredients and set to work…

Mix the chopped butter and brown sugar together

Add the vanilla essence and eggs

Sieve in the self-raising flour (I couldn’t find self-raising flour in Germany so had regular flour with baking powder!)

Then add your chosen ingredients - I went for hazelnuts and chocolate chunks but you can add almost anything you want - fruit pieces, chocolates and nuts.

Try not to eat too much of the yummy mixture at this stage!

Mix together and then form into balls and place on a greaseproof paper on a baking tray.

And bake!

They only take about 8-10 minutes to cook…and the delicious cookie smell fills your kitchen!

Then cook them on a wire rack.

And sample the results of your hard work!

Perfect afternoon treat - and good to take into the office (once you’ve had your fill!)
