Merry Christmas everyone! I've been doing so much baking, sometimes I feel like throwing my spatula on the floor. My mum is working me like a slave elf, baking cookies and cupcakes to give as gifts to everyone we know. If I have to whip anymore butter, I might flip a... flip some baking sheets ;) I really miss my stand mixer I left in Richmond!! My withered arms are too weak for vigorous stirring :(
Anyhoo, my high school friend is visiting and she has been helping me bake! Here's one of our lovely creations.
Fig Walnut Dark Chocolate Cookiesmakes 50-60 cookies
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
1 tbsp vanilla
1 cup dried figs, cut into raisin size
1 cup semisweet/dark chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped
- Preheat oven to 350F
- In a medium bowl, mix the dry ingredients together (flour, baking soda, salt)
- With a electric mixer, beat butter in a large bowl until fluffy. Add sugars and beat for 1 min. Beat in eggs 1 at a time and then beat in vanilla.
- Add the dry mix and stir until just blended. Fold in the figs, chocolate and walnuts
- Bake for 12-15 mins, or until just golden. Make be soft to touch on the top, but will harden when it cools
