cookies (recipe by Luca Montersino)

After the Christmas festivities, let me make a simple recipe: the cookies by Montersino, that I worked as a pastry dough instead of using a pastry bag to make little circles on the baking tray, as suggested by him.


Ingredients for about 50 cookies

  • 300 g butter at room temperature
  • 225 g brown sugar
  • 120 g free range eggs
  • 30g honey
  • 200 chocolate drops
  • 450 g all purpose flour
  • 6 g baking powder
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 1 g salt

Preheat the oven to 180° 
Whip the butter with the brown sugar, the vanilla seeds, the honey and the salt. Pour the eggs one by one while the mixture is whipping at low speed; then add the flour sifted with the baking powder and finally the chocolate drops. Roll out the dough between two baking papers, flatten with a rolling pin into the desired thickness and then give the biscuits the shape you most prefer. Bake at 180° for about 15 minutes. Let cool on a rack.
