This back-to-school 2020 promises to be with a lot of lunchboxes, as few company or school canteens have reopened. Here is a very simple and quick recipe to enjoy chocolate chip cookies, coated with hazelnut chips. Cookies that are easy to transport, for lunch, afternoon tea or even a coffee break. A recipe that requires few ingredients, and not even a food processor, just salad bowls and wooden spoons.
To cut the hazelnuts into pieces without them rolling all over the place, use a bread knife : its large teeth grip the hazelnuts well and this prevents them from escaping and jumping everywhere. To get really soft butter, you have to take it out several hours in advance at room temperature.
The cookie dough freezes very well. And this recipe makes a lot of it, so you can perfectly divide it in half and freeze half of it. You can either freeze the dough as it is, or prepare the small cookie balls, put them in the fridge for a while to harden them and then slip them into a freezer bag. Very handy to always have ready-to-bake cookies ahead of time, just add two minutes to the baking time.
