Getting that Christmas feeling going – Chocolate Cookies With Cinnamon and Pine Nuts
CHOCOLATE COOKIES WITH CINNAMON AND PINE NUTS
150 g/5,3 ounces salted butter
150 g/5,3 ounces brown sugar
4 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon (optional)
200 g/ 7 ounces flour
3 tbsp pine nuts
Mix butter and sugar until smooth. Sift flour, cocoa powder and cinnamon into the butter and sugar, add pine nuts and mix it all well.
Roll the dough into a long roll and let it rest wrapped in plastic foil for an hour in the fridge.
Slice the roll thinly (0,5 cm/0,2 in) and put the slices on baking sheets. If you don’t have the time or want to skip the fridge part, just roll the dough into little balls straight away and flatten them with a fork or your hand before putting them on a baking sheet.
Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes in a pre-heated oven (175°C/350°F).
