It is a sad fact that my current apartment does not have an oven and so whenever I am visiting my parents I will bake a couple of things to bring back to Munich with me. There is just nothing like homemade cake and cookies…sigh
Today I want to share one of my staple cookie recipes with you. I have adjusted this recipe over time and am very happy with my current version. It is nice and crisp on the outside and softer on the inside. The dough has a nice caramel-y flavour which complements the rich dark chocolate pieces perfectly.
300-350g sugar <>
500g spelt flour
1 tsp salt
1,5 tsp baking soda
1,5 tsp baking powder
This dough is super easy. Start by creaming the butter/oil with the sugar. Add eggs one by one. Add vanilla extract. Add flour and baking soda, baking powder. Mix to incorporate. Lastly add chocolate chips.
You can store the dough in the fridge for up to three days. I find that the flavour actually intensifies when not baking immediately. So if you have the time I recommend storing it in fridge over night before baking the cookies.
Bake cookies at 180°C until golden on the edges (around 15 to 18 minutes).
