I saw this recipe on Milli's Kitchen yesterday and have been thinking about it ever since. I ran to get supplies straight from work and started baking immediately. As I have a little (large) soft spot for ginger I upped the spice to give a little kick.
Makes 14 cookies.
160g dark chocolate
80g milk chocolate
60g unsalted butter
2 large eggs
20g ginger purée
120g golden caster sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
150g self raising flour, sifted
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
Melt the chocolate and butter in a plastic bowl in the microwave or over a ban Marie until fully melted and smooth. (Approximately 1 minute in the microwave).
Beat together eggs, ginger and sugar until pale and light.
Add the chocolate and sugar mix together, mix well.
Stir in self raising flour, salt and cocoa powder. Stir until well combined.
Dollop mix onto a baking sheet leaving space for the cookies to spread.
Sprinkle with ground ginger and chocolate chips.
Bake for 12-14 minutes depending on thickness of cookie.
Cool on a wire rack.
