Black Garlic and Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is the perfect cookie recipe when you don't have any cocoa in the house, but you have Black Garlic Puree (of course) and a handful of chocolate buttons lying around.

The caramel notes of the Black Garlic really shine in this sweet, but 'not too sweet' cookie. The texture is soft and chewy - very moreish.

Ingredients:

100gm butter

100gm white sugar

100gm brown sugar

4gm sea salt

100gm dark chocolate buttons (broken up) 

220gm flour

7gm baking powder

30gm Black Garlic Puree

1 large egg 

Method:

Cream the butter and sugars till light and fluffy.

Add the rest of the dry ingredients - but not the chocolate buttons yet. Mix well. The mixture will be dry at this stage.

Add the egg and the Black Garlic Puree. Mix well. You don't want a sloppy cookie batter, the egg and puree should just bind it all together.

Add the chocolate and stir through.

Roll balls about 25-30gm each in weight, and place the balls on your cookie tray lined with baking paper. Do not grease it.

Bake at 160C for 10-12 mins. Makes about 25 - 30 cookies.

Best eaten while still warm or enjoyed the next day with a warm cuppa.
