We are almost at Christmas and we have set to work to make different Christmas recipes. This time we wanted to start with the sweet, because it may be what most demand causes among the diners and is the perfect symbol of this Christmas season, either with nougat, panettone, polvorones among other desserts and typical sweets.
These cookies can be made with different ingredients, you just have to keep the basic ingredients and then season it and add whatever you like or like.
In our case we wanted to try with oats and to have a sweeter point we have added chocolate at the end of the preparation. We explain how to do them and what options you have if there is an ingredient in the recipe that you do not like or that you are allergic or intolerant.
How to make oatmeal and chocolate cookies
- 240 grams of soft oat flakes
- 75 grams of white flour (oats, wheat, spelled) or even wholemeal
- 120 grams of unsalted butter
- 100 grams of white or brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- Half a teaspoon of yeast
- A pinch of fine salt
- Cinnamon to taste
- Chocolate chips
Ingredients that you can vary:
- Ginger (very typical christmas spice)
How do we prepare them ?:
In the first place it is essential that you have all the heavy ingredients and by hand, so that you only have to add them in the order in which we propose it. Of course it goes without saying that the oven must be preheated so that when you finish preparing the cookies, you enter them without waiting, we will set a temperature between 150 º and º180 º degrees depending on the type of oven with heat up and down.
To start the butter to use must be about to oint to make it easier to mix it with sugar, in this case (we have put it in the microwave for a few seconds in the defrost mode to soften).
After mixing butter and sugar, it is time to introduce the egg and observe that the three ingredients are fully integrated.
Then we will include the other ingredients, starting with oats, flour, yeast, cinnamon and salt.
After all the ingredients are completely mixed, we will use baking paper to line our tray and place small balls in rows and crush them to form cookies, sprinkle with more cinnamon on top and add the chocolate nuggets on the surface of the cookie.
When introducing them in the oven, we will check that the biscuits are browning and in no case let them harden, the appropriate time is between 15 and 20 minutes but as we mentioned each oven is different and it is a matter of watching them. We like to take them out when you are still a little tender and that the same heat ends up hardening them and so they catch the perfect crunch.
I hope you like biscuits as much as we do, and make them and enjoy them not only at Christmas but throughout the year. Whoever has children at home will know that cookies are the best resource for a snack or a snack, but as long as they are homemade (and healthier).
Soon we will be publishing more recipes of cookies, with different ingredients, since there are many people who prefer them with oil instead of butter, or for other reasons, such as food allergies or intolerances that require a stricter care to the time to make food at home.
