Is there a better idea than bake cookies? I don’t think so. I guess I already told it but for me cookies are kind of the perfect pastry. It is so simple to bake, so simple to carry and so simple to share. Cookies are the kind of biscuits I often bake when I meet my friend, and it is always a huge success. With this recipe I even brought some to my dentist, wanting to show that sugar isn’t so bad!
I found this recipe searching randomly for inspiration on Pinterest as I was collecting new images to get cakes inspiration. And then I found the recipe from the French speaking website Recette-gateau.eu. I guess that without Pinterest I would never have found that website, the proof it is not only a way to collect images!
Except the sugar that I replace with brown sugar, I did not really change the ingredients. During the preparation the mix could seem a too liquid for a cookie dough, but no worries everything will be fine! For the biscuit itself the texture is really nice. Crispy outside and soft inside, almost like a brownie.
