I like my cookies chewy much more than crunchy ! I guess it is a question of personal taste ! these have a strong vanilla flavour & Daims just slightly melt into the dough & add an even chewier texture...We really had hard times not to eat them just out of oven & wait until they cool down a bit, needless to say they didn't last long !!
yelds : 20
here's what we need :
3/4 cup + 2 tablespoons sugar, 1/2 cup softened butter, 2 tablespoons coconut oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 large egg, 1 tablespoon cornsyrup or honey, 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract, 2 drops almond extract, 2 cups + 2 tablespoons flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 20 daims
here's what we do :
preheat the oven to 350°F
In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat sugar, butter, coconut oil & salt on medium speed about 1 minute, until fluffy & light.
Add the egg, corn syrup or honey, vanilla & almond extracts and mix on low speed just to combine, then beat at medium speed for a total of 1 minute
In a medium bowl, whisk flour, baking powder & baking soda, then add to the batter. Mix on low speed to combine then on midium speed for about 30 seconds to mix the dough uniformly.
Cut 20 daims into small pieces & add to the dough.
gently roll the dough into balls (about one heaping tablespoon each) balls don't need to be perfect !
Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment. Arrange at least 2 1/4 inches apart on the baking sheets.
Bake one sheet at a time until golden with top NOT COMPLETELY SET, 10/12 minutes !! Unless you really have a good excuse, you better stay around !!
Let the cookies cool on the sheet for at least 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack.
relax, savour & share !
