Give me some cookies and a good book…I will be one happy soul! Well, a book usually is enough…but I never ignore a good cookie 😁😁
Specially when I baked them in about 30 mins from start to finish! Cool, isn’t it?! 😀 There’s no story behind this recipe…just that I wanted some cookies and I simply made them. This isn’t my recipe, it’s over from Monique’s Ambitious Kitchen! ☺️ I just twisted it a bit with my love for the coffee / mocha flavour in my bakes. 💞 don’t believe how much I love mocha?! Try my Nutella Filled Mocha Cupcakes! 🍦
I was looking for recipe to finish a jar of Nutella sitting in my pantry (Yes, that actually happens in my house! We have enormous restraint when it comes to Nutella!😛😛😛), and obviously wanted to do something that was quick and yummmmyyyyy 👏 and this recipe fits the bill in every way! 💃
And sprinkling some sea-salt on top of these cookies while they are still warm is just heavenly!
Let me tell you, these won’t be crunchy when they cool down. They are FUDGY! Yes! And I wanted some crunch so added some whole sugar crystals just before baking them….and the fudgy goes well with the crunchy 👌👌😜 now let’s get on with the recipe… It’s an easy one…
️Yield: 10-12 cookies depending on the size
Equipment: baking tray, a wooden spatula (you can use an electric mixer, but trust me, you won’t need it!) a cooling rack, a mixing bowl
1 cup Nutella @ room temperature 250 gms approx
2 tbsp brown sugar (I used Demerera)
1 egg @ room temperature
1/2 cup + 1 tbsp APF (Maida)
1/2 tbsp instant coffee pwd (I used Nescafé)
2 tbsp sugar (optional, to add some crunch )
coarse sea salt for sprinkling
Pre-heat the oven @ 180’C. No need to grease the baking tray. Just keep it ready.
Mix all the ingredients well except the sea salt in a mixing bowl using a wooden spatula or an electric mixer. This should take you about 8-10 mins. If you’re using some sugar for the crunch I mentioned above, add that in and give quick mix! Place the bowl with the batter I the refrigerator for 10 mins.
After 10 mins, get the batter out of the refrigerator, scoop up small portions using a spoon and place on the prepared baking tray at a distance of 2″ from each other. Bake @ 180’C for about 10-11 mins. Remove from the oven and keep it on the cooling rack. Sprinkle the coarse sea salt generously all over the cookies! ☺️☺️ dig in once they cool a bit!
You can minus the coffee pwd or simply add some nuts…whatever you like! The taste is simply awesome. Enjoy!
