You need to make these!!
They are sooooooooo good, you will want to throttle me:)
Because you will eat them all………
Not too sweet, with an almost melting in the mouth texture..
You could cook them a little more and they would be more crunchy, if that’s your thing:)
They were gone within the afternoon………
So without further ado and waffling…..
Lets get VERY greedy!
You will need
1 cup of muscovado sugar
1/2 cup of brown sugar
Pinch of salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp milk
3 cups of Pure flour
1 tbsp cinnamon + 1 tbsp for later
1/2 cup of castor sugar.
So what to do?
Melt the butter in a saucepan on a medium low heat until browned.
Usually about 10-15 minutes but keep an eye on it!!
Allow the browned butter to cool.
You can sieve the browned butter if you like or just leave it.
Sometimes I like that extra gritty taste so I leave it in .
Pour butter into the mixing bowl, add the sugars and beat on low-medium speed until pale and fluffy.
This is usually about 6-8 minutes.
Add the eggs, one at a time.
Combine all drys in a bowl and add in to the buttery egg mix, 1 cup at a time.
Gently fold in, but don’t over do it but make sure its well combined
Cover with a tea towel or gladwrap and leave in the fridge for at least an hour.
While the dough is in the fridge, combine the sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl.
Remove the dough from the fridge.
Preheat the oven to 200 celsius.
I used an ice cream scoop and did sort of 3/4 scoops, you could also use a spoon.
Roll the dough into mini scoops (like above) and roll lightly in the sugar /cinnamon mix.
Place on a baking tray with paper and slighty flatten.
Be careful that you don’t over flatten them as you want them quite thick.
Do 16 cookies to a tray, this makes about 24 quite large cookies or 34 smaller.
Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, turning the tray at 6-7 minutes.
You can as I stated early on, leave it a bit longer if you like more bite to your cookies.
Remove from oven and cool on racks.
When warm, errrr cool, ENJOY, ENJOY, ENJOY!!
The possibilities of this recipe are endless too, you can add in all sorts of things and play around with the taste..
The greedyboys swear they are great with ice cream…
BUT they say that too everything….a bit like tomato sauce:)
