I told lot of things about her, let me introduce you to her she is Cara from Boys made me do it , you must be wondering what is all this about, well, it is this Monday! SRC Reveal day, Oh! yes it’s already a month!, Angela who is co-hostess of The secret Recipe Club assigned me to this blog. Amanda, the fabulous women started this club which has grown like a wild fire is not able to manage on her own has now got co-hosts to help her with this project, She is such a sweet heart, is ready for any help needed, I want to thank both of them to have allowed me to enjoy this lovely theme with them.
I have halved the recipe, If you want to check the original recipe is here.
She adapted this cookies recipe from her friend Krystal who in turn adapted from Joy the Baker.
1/2 Cup Brown sugar
1 tsp Vanilla essence
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp Ground cinnamon
a generous pinch of nutmeg
10 gms Walnuts
20 gms Chocolate chips
1 tbsp Lemon Juice
1/4 cup Butter
1 Egg ( I just omitted it)
preheat oven to 350 degrees/Gas mark 6
In a large take all the dry ingredients, baking powder, baking soda, salt, two flours, cinnamon, and nutmeg and mix well together.
In an other bowl, beat sugar and butter until fluffy and creamy,( If you are using egg add at this point and beat well together to light and fluffy and do not add lemon juice and apples at this stage add them at the end with nuts and chips but do not forget to add lemon juice to apple and set it aside until use), then add lemon juice and finely chopped 1 apple mix well together, this is important chop the apples and mix immediately so the apples don’t loose colour!
Then to this mix add chopped walnuts and chocolate chips.
Line two baking sheets with butter paper and with a spoon spread the dough on to the sheet with space apart,
and bake them for 15 to 20 minutes I baked mine to 20 minutes as I wanted it to be bit on the crispy side. Even then it wasn’t too crispy but tasted great.
My kids loved it and I felt happy as they were healthy and I had used fresh fruit in it, What else do you need in it 🙂
