A couple of years ago, I got Roy Fares’ United Cakes of America for Christmas. I baked the cookie recipe a couple of times, it was delicious but… it required 225 g of butter, which was way too fat for me (and since swedish butter is sold in 500 g packages, it means that you had to buy a new package every time you wanted to make a new batch). So I looked around for another recipe, and found Leila Lindholm’s chocolate chip cookie recipe. I have been making a version of it ever since, since my mum loves them. I finally realised I hadn’t posted it. 🙂
125 g of butter
1 dl sugar
½ dl oatmeal
1 ½ flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
100 g Chocolate chips
chopped hazelnuts ( roughly half a bag)
Turn the oven to 200 c, while the oven heats up, let the butter soften on top of the stove.
Whip the soft butter and the sugar until it is creamy, add the egg and mix until it is smooth. Mix flour, oatmeal and baking powder in a small bowl, add it to the egg and butter mix. Add the chocolate and hazelnuts.
With a small spoon, drop the batter on a baking sheet covered in baking parchment. Put in the oven for ten minutes. *
*If you want more traditional cookies, roll the batter and put in the freezer for 30 minutes, before slicing the batter.
I prefer this version, though!
