…for Chocolate Chip Cantuccini Cookies:
Preheat the oven to 180°C (top/bottom heat). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Put 2 eggs, 125 grams soft butter, 100 grams sugar, 1 sachet of vanilla sugar & a pinch of salt in a mixing bowl & mix together for 2 – 3 minutes until well combined. Next, gradually add 300 grams flour & stir in until you got a smooth dough & everything is well combined.
Finally, add 100 grams of chocolate chips and 100 grams of almonds sticks or chopped almonds, fold in with a spatula until all the ingredients are evenly distributed & then transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet.
Flatten the dough & shape it into a long & flat “loaf of bread”. Then transfer the baking sheet into the preheated oven for 25 – 30 minutes & bake it until lightly brown, then take the sheet out of the oven and allow to cool for about 5 minutes.
Cut the dough into slices about 2 centimeters thick with a knife & put it back on the baking sheet with the cut surface facing up. Put the cantuccini back in the oven for another 8 – 10 minutes & bake until golden-brown and crispy. Have fun baking!
