It seems I have a bit of a knack in the baking arena at Chez Depre.
This weeks cookie experiment started with a package of Chocolate Crème Brulee mix that did not come to be over the holidays. Found this mix at Bed Bath & Beyond.
My thoughts were I bet I can make a cookie out of this. Of course one of my very fav ingredients for cookies, Vanilla Sugar, came along for the ride.
Crème Brulee mix
caramelizing sugar pack (in box)
1 cup of flour
6 tablespoons of room temp butter
1 package of vanilla sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup of sliced almonds smashed into small bits
Mix well. Dough will have a bit of a wet consistency, kind of like fudge. Roll into 1 inch balls.
…..and the secret ingredient that threw them over the edge according to Paul…….
gently touch cookie ball into some course salt. just a bit. trust me this is so yummy.
You should get about 2.5 dozen cookies. Note the salt is just a bit on one edge.
DO NOT roll in salt!
12 mins in a 350 oven and viola!
Cookies are a deep chocolate in taste with that salt making them well….yummy!
