Rustic Cocoa Cookies

I decided to create a new cookie recipe for a recent food photography lighting demo. It needed to be rustic and preferably more than one colour. This was the delicious result! The white chocolate is optional, but looks good and adds to the chocolate hit.

140g soft brown sugar

120g Self raising flour

110g soft butter

50g chopped dark chocolate

25g chopped white chocolate to decorate (optional)

40g oats

1 egg, lightly beaten

30g cocoa powder

1 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven 180°C /160°C fan GM 4

Makes about 20

  1. Cream together the butter and sugar until creamy and lighter in colour.
  2. Add the egg and beat to combine.
  3. Add all the other ingredients apart from the white chocolate if using. Mix until combined.
  4. Place large spoonful dollops of the mix on to a lined/greased baking tray. Make sure you allow enough room for expansion. No need to press down, dot the top with white chocolate if using.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool on the baking tray for 5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. Enjoy ♥
