Cookie's cookies!! (GF, TMX)
today i made Cookie's recipe from the Thermomix competition - Decadent Chocolate Biscuits. the dough (yes, i do LOVE cookie dough ;p) wasn't as nice as yesterday's but the finished product is mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm! the taste kind of comes out of nowhere to sock you one LOL
i had to make a ton of substitutions because i didn't have what the recipe called for, but they were still very good (going to be very hard to pick one)
here is my gluten free version:
Decadent Chocolate Biscuits
about 1/4 cup brandy (GF)
1 cup dried figs
100g GF milk chocolate
about 1/3 cup whole almonds
110g raw sugar *
1 tsp vanilla extract
300g gluten free plain flour
small amount milk if needed
Chop figs on speed 6-7 until cut into smallish pieces. Soak figs in brandy for a few hours or overnight in an airtight container.
Preheat oven to 180ºC.
Place broken chocolate into TM bowl and mill for 4 seconds on speed 7. If you prefer chunkier chocolate check the chop earlier. Set aside in fig bowl.
Chop almonds for 4 seconds on speed 7. add to fig bowl.
place raw sugar in thermomix bowl and mill for around 10 seconds on speed 8.
Add butter, vanilla and egg into TM bowl and mix for 10 seconds on speed 5.
Add flour, cocoa and milk if needed, and with dial set to closed lid position, mix for 10-15 seconds on Interval setting until blended.
Add nuts, figs and chocolate and blend a further 7 seconds on Reverse + speed 4.
Place spoonfuls onto lined baking trays and cook for 10-12 minutes.
Allow to cool on trays, they will become firm as they cool.
* oops i just realised i only added in 1/3 of the sugar in the original recipe but they sure don't taste like they are missing sugar!
