CHOCOLATE COOKIES WITH CANDIED PECANS

 

Makes 12

Ingredients

150g unsalted butter

175g caster sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

¼ tsp salt

175g plain flour

25g cocoa powder

½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

For the ganache

100g dark chocolate

100ml double cream

For the candied pecans

100g granulated sugar

100g pecans

A drizzle of vegetable oil, for greasing

 

Method

-          Preheat the oven to 160C/Gas3; line a large baking sheet with baking paper

-          In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy – about 3- 5 minutes; add the vanilla extract and salt and beat for a further minute

-          Sift the flour, cocoa powder and bicarbonate of soda over the creamed butter and sugar; beat together until combined

-          Divide into 12 equal balls and place on the lined baking tray; press each one down to flatten slightly; bake for 12 minutes, then remove from the oven and leave to cool on the tray for 20 minutes, before placing on a wire rack to cool completely

-          While the cookies are baking make the candied pecans; melt the sugar in a small saucepan over a low heat; once the sugar has melted, increase the heat and bring it to a boil and cook until golden in colour; add the nuts, then pour the mixture onto an oiled baking tray; leave to cool, then roughly chop and set aside

-          When the cookies are cool make the ganache; finely chop the chocolate and place into a small heatproof bowl; gently heat the cream in a small saucepan until it just comes to the boil, remove from the heat and pour over the chopped chocolate; leave for 30 seconds, then gently stir to combine; leave to cool and thicken slightly, stirring occasionally; then place a spoonful of ganache on top of each cookie letting it spread slightly but not covering the whole cookie; top each cookie with the candied pecans
