Guy of Gisborne’s…cookies
(So called because I really write about him best when I have a cup of tea and one of ‘these’ to nibble on…)
I suppose if you want to be frightfully posh, you could call them biscotti and forget about the Guy of Gisborne bit but then why would you want to do that?
125g unsalted butter
1/2 cup castor sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar (lightly packed)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups self-raising flour
150g dark and white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Cream together butter, both sugars and vanilla. Add lightly beaten egg. Mix in flour. Add chocolate chips. I add as many chocbits as I want, throwing them around with abandon. And I add 60g of not quite smoothly ground hazelnuts.
Teaspoonfuls of mixture into small balls on a cookie tray and press ever so slightly with fork. Bake in oven for 10 – 12 minutes, until just golden and remove from oven. Do NOT touch until cooled.
I then melt half a block of the darkest, most pure chocolate I can find and dollop on the top of each and then shake icing sugar over all.
Eat whilst thinking of Sir Guy of Gisborne.
They look utterly delightful. If only I’d checked my blogs feed before going to the shops!
let me know what you think if you do make them.
Very delish looking! Both the books and the cookies. 🙂
Seriously gorgeous cookies. The kind to hide in your bag whilst you’re walking round the most extRAvagant art exhibition!
Heh! Heh! I will follow your crumbs and find you… 🙂
Oh! These look and sound much too yummy to share. Shall make these next time hubby is out of town. 🙂
Thanks for sharing this recipe.
Scribbler! Where have you been? So good to have you back. And I won’t tell hubbie if you won’t…
Prue I love you! My kind of food, my kind of reading!! I am going to have to try making these.
Nikalee, I know you have time constraints and I promise these are really quick to concoct!
I’ll take the cookies and the Guy to go with them 😉
Mmmm! Me too. I’ll have an archery contest with you and may the best damsel win!
