These cookies are pretty much what you’d expect from their name. They don’t look gourmet, but distinctly homemade, whether that’s a good or a bad thing is up to you!
You could use chocolate chips, but I thought it would be more indulgent to use nice big chunks of chocolate. The main flavour comes from the chocolate, so you might as well go for good quality. I used Green & Blacks.
Ingredients (makes quite a few):
Beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy and gradually add the egg (beaten). Sieve the flour and fold it (and the salt) into the mixture. Roughly chop the chocolate into chunks and chop the nuts as fine as you like.
Add the vanilla extract, chocolate and nuts and stir it all in.
Onto greased baking tins, drop heaped teaspoon-fulls of the cookie dough. They look a bit better in the end if you flatten them down a bit. Allow them some room for spreading. Bake at 190° C for about 10 minutes and leave to cool on racks.
