Here's the promised 'rich, amazing cookie recipe' from my creamy lemon fudge! Like I said you're seriously going to love these.
Sometimes I feel like my blog doesn't need words, but not tonight. Gosh, this cookie is so good, I think I'm going to have to spend forever describing it, all while I snack on one, or two (I mean a whole bowl).
How should I start? These aren't just any chocolate cookies. They're like your average chocolate cookies, but 5 times more chocolatey. Yay for that =D I've always found chocolate cookies not chocolatey enough. They're always too sweet and not so chocolatey. (*whisper* subway...)
As you can probably tell, I'm a dark chocolate lover. Milk chocolate just isn't my cup of tea. But white chocolate definitely is. That's why this cookie combines the best of both worlds. Not too sweet, rich, fudgy dark chocolate cookies with a sweet, creamy white chocolate lemon fudge. Pure perfection.
Chocolate Lemon Fudge Cookie
(makes about 28 to 30 cookies)
129g plain flour
71g cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
120g unsalted butter, softened
86g dark brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
225g chocolate chips
about 28 to 30 pieces of 1cm cube creamy lemon fudge (or any other creamy lemon candy)
1. Sift together plain flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
2. Cream butter with sugar and dark brown sugar till light and fluffy.
3. Beat in the egg and vanilla essence.
4. Fold in flour till just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
5. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.
6. Scoop 1 tablespoon sized balls of cookie dough and press a piece of lemon fudge into the centre.
7. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 9 to 10 minutes. Cookies will look soft and undone, but they will harden up. Allow to rest on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely. Wait longer if the cookies are still too soft to move.
