Where helpful I have translated some of the recipe for Dutch shoppers.
(Warning do not leave your cookies at dog or cat height - the amount chocolate will certainly agitate the animals if not make them completely sick.)
Step 1: Wet Ingredients / Natte Ingrediënten
Wet ingredients / natte ingrediënten
Amount /bedrag English Nederlands
123 gr Unsalted butter ongezouten roomboter
1 medium Egg ei
125 ml Demerara sugar ruwe rietsuiker
2 ml Vanilla vanilla
4 gr Nescafé gold Nescafé gold (oploskoffie)
In a bowl cream together all of the wet ingredients until smooth and creamy. In the batch I made for this tutorial I used my electric mixer. I have done this by hand with a wooden spoon and patients.
Step 2: Sift Dry Ingredients / Ziften Droge Ingrediënten
150 ml Self rising flour zelf rijzend bakmeel
4 gr fine salt fine zout
Sift salt and self rising flour and place in a bowl to the side.
Step 3: Prepare the Chocolate Chunks / Bereid De Chocolade Stukjes
One of the best parts of this recipe is that it requires a hammer. I use a large rubber mallet to prepare my chocolate chunks. Place the chocolate in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
200 gr Dark chocolate extra bittere chocolade (65% cacaobestanddelen)
Take the rubber mallet and break the bar into pieces and set aside
Step 4: Nuts / Noten
250 gr Pecans Pecannoten
Place these is a convenient container. If you are trying to teach American chocolate chip cookie technology to your Dutch friends make sure they do not substitute walnuts or hazel nuts (hazelnoten of walnoten.) There is nothing wrong with these other nuts, but your product will be a different kind of cookie.
Step 5: Add the Wet and Dry Ingredients / Combineer De Natte En Droge Ingrediënten
LET THE DOUGH REST! Minimally for 30 minutes but I have stored the dough for up to a week. Patients will have its own rewards. Letting the dough rest overnight in the refrigerator is optimal.
If you want to store the dough for more than 24 hours, wrap the dough in baking paper and then wrap it in aluminium or plastic wrap.
Step 6: Place Cookies on a Baking Tray / Plaats Koekjes Op Een Bakplaat
Step 7: Bake for 10-13 Minutes / Bak Gedurende 10-13 Minuten
I have included a picture of the final product with my kitchen hammer for scale.
