In collaboration with Côté Caen (Calvados), Liberty offers you every weekend a recipe, simple and effective, Concocted by the Sunday Photographer. This October 18, 2020, this foodie will explain how to make Cookies madness !
Do you want to indulge yourself with delicious cookies, which will come at the right time for afternoon tea? Here is the recipe that will delight young and old alike, with an easy-to-make cookie. You will see, nothing too rocket science!
For 24 cookies: 170g of brown sugar, 215g of T45 flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, 135g of soft butter, 1 egg (at room temperature), 115g of pecans (or hazelnuts or pistachios, depending on your taste ), 190g of full-bodied dark chocolate, 115g of milk chocolate and 1 good pinch of fleur de sel
Be careful, for this recipe, you will have to get your hands dirty! Start by mixing the flour and baking powder, then roughly chop the chocolate and the dried fruits.
Next, knead the soft butter, sugar and salt with your little hands, then add the egg. Gently pour in the flour and baking powder mixture until you obtain a homogeneous mixture. Then add the chocolate and the fruits, distributing them well in your dough.
Make way for shaping: form small balls of about 40g, then flatten them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Your future cookies should be no thicker than your little finger before baking.
Preheat the oven to 220 °, and while waiting for it to heat up, put your cookies in the fridge for 30 minutes. Once the oven is hot and our cookies are fresh, we lower the temperature to 190 ° C and go for 12 minutes of baking, taking care to turn the baking sheet halfway through.
Do you smell that good smell that comes from the kitchen? To be enjoyed warm once baked, when you have a beautiful golden ruff on the edges of your future favorite cookies!

Me is Guillaume alias "Le Photographer du Dimanche". I have been a food photographer for two years, and passionate about cooking since I was little. In addition to taking photographs for restaurants, chefs, pastry chefs or passionate producers, I also sometimes go behind the stove with my chef, Étienne, for our Bombance evenings under the banner of "street good food". Côté Caen will not fail to inform you!
