Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Chip Cookies
recipe translated and adapted from Dessert & Baking DIY
- makes around 20 cookies

100g butter, room temperature
75g icing sugar
1 egg
150g flour
2 tbsp cocoa
1/8tsp salt
1 tbsp chocolate chips
3 tbsp almond flakes

1. With wooden spatula, cream butter and sugar until fluffy and pale.
2. Mix in egg until well combined.
3. Add sifted flour, cocoa and salt. Mix (not in one uniformed direction).
4. Mix in almond flakes.
5. Portion dough and form balls.
6. Slightly flatten dough and place chocolate chips on top.
7. Bake at a 170C/ 338F preheated oven for 20 minutes.
8. Cool.

Sadly, this is not a chocolate chip recipe I would go back to. The cookies came out not crunchy nor chewy. It was like a dense and doughy cookie with a prominent flour-y taste. I know for sure it wasn't underbaked. It was dry! Mmmm, and I don't think I messed up at any steps. So yeah.. I would rather just go back to my trusty NM Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe next time.

Taste: 1 star out of 5 (no rich buttery or chocolate flavor, weird flour-y taste, 1 star for chocolate chips)
Texture: 1 star out of 5 (dense, dry)
