Sea Salt Cookies

This lovely chewy cookie is packed with chunks of delicious chocolate and walnuts.

Makes 15-20 Cookies

160g organic butter, softened
275g brown sugar
1 organic egg
250g plain flour
1 tsp. baking powder & ½ tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. ground cinnamon (optional)
80g Sea Salt 55% from Chocolate and Love, chopped into big chunks
100g walnuts, coarsely chopped (or nuts of your choice)
½ tsp. sea salt in the dough & a pinch of sea salt to sprinkle

Method

Using an electric mixer, whisk together the butter and brown sugar for about 5 minutes, until white and creamy. Add the egg and continue mixing for another 2 minutes until combined and smooth.

In a bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, chocolate and walnuts.Stir the flour-mix into the whisked butter/sugar, little by little, until just combined.

The cookie dough now needs to rest between 4-48 hours in the fridge. Shape the dough into a roll and wrap it in a piece of cling film.

Pre-heat the oven to 200ºC (175ºC for fan). Cut the cookie roll into 1cm thick slices. Leave a little space between the cookies. If you’re fan of salty treats, sprinkle a small pinch of flaky sea salt on every cookie.

Bake the cookies for approximately 15 minutes or until golden around the edges, while still soft in the center.
