Pierre Herme Chocolate and Sea Salt Cookies 

30-40 cookies

Ingredients:
150 grams soft butter
120 grams light brown sugar
50 grams sugar
1/2 tsp. ground sea salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
175 grams all-purpose flour
30 grams cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking powder
150 grams dark chocolate, 70% cocoa solids, finely chopped

Preparation:

  1. In a bowl of an electric mixer with a paddle attachment put butter, brown sugar, sugar, salt and vanilla and blend until the mixture is creamy.
  2. Add flour, cocoa, baking powder and chopped chocolate and mix just until the large clumps of dough are formed. If the dough is not coming together – add a little water gradually.
  3. Transfer the dough chunks on a lightly floured work surface and divide into 2 parts.
  4. Create a tight cylinder shape from each piece of dough and chill the rolls in the freezer for about an hour or until completely frozen.
  5. Preheat oven to 170c degrees.
  6. Cut the rolls to about 1/2cm thick coins and put on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  7. Bake for about 10-15 minutes or until the cookies set at the edges but still a little soft in the center.
  8. Cool completely on a rack and serve.

Notes:

  • When making the cookies make sure to use good-quality dark chocolate.
  • You can convert some of the chocolate with chopped nuts.
  • Keep the cookies in a sealed jar for up to two weeks.
