I’ve been 5 days sick with gastro and eating rice and cooked carrots, I just can’t stand it anymore. So I thought I would prepare a few cookies for when I’ll be better which needs to be really quick now because I miss to eat some good and tasty food.

Easy and quick recipes if you need to prepare something to eat for the kids or some visitors coming for tea on a last minute



What do you need?

  • 200g of brown sugar or 175g of white sugar
  • 100g of butter
  • 170g of chocolate (Nestle patissier)
  • 200g of flour
  • 1 egg
  • 70g of nuts
  • Vanilla extract (1 tsp)
  • self raising powder (half tea spoon)
  • salt (pinch)
  • bicarbonate (half tea spoon)


  • Let the butter at ambient temperature
  • If you bought fresh nuts like I did, open them, get them out of the shell and cut in small pieces
  • Cut the chocolate roughly in small pieces
  • Mix the soft butter with sugar until you get a soft creamy texture
  • Add the vanilla extract and salt
  • Add the egg and mix well
  • Mix together the flour, self raising powder and bicarbonate
  • Add the flour little after little to the mixture
  • Finally, add the chocolate and nuts, mix well
  • Make some small or medium balls with the mixture depending on the size you want to achieve. (don’t worry about the shape, it will flatten by itself)
  • cook for 14mn at 170°C in a fan oven. Depending on your oven keep checking. It needs to remain slight soft
  • Enjoy!
