I’m not sure the reason why but I always tend to make a cake when I go into the kitchen to bake rather than biscuits or cookies. I seem to be much more confident when developing a cake recipe than when I’m working on new biscuit ideas – no idea why though.
I made these cookies a few weeks back when it was snowing – as I had a broken arm I stayed indoors and made cookies rather then being out in the street shovelling snow with everyone else. I did share the cookies with the people shovelling snow though.
I’ve made these with salted peanuts as I love a salt and chocolate combination. If you want a more traditional cookie you can substitute the salted peanuts for some dairy free chocolate chips.
