I recently posted the recipe for Oat and Ginger cookies, however I understand that ginger does not appeal to everyone. I have another favourite cookie recipe, one that includes chocolate… I am sure most of you reading this like chocolate. 🙂
It is easy to see why this cookie is another favourite of ours. It is full of flavour, crunchy and chewy at the same time, and very floral. The floral notes come from the cardamom seeds. I am using green cardamom pods here and grinding the seeds myself using a mortar and pestle. I find that their flavour is much more pungent and intense than the readily ground cardamom seeds.
In this recipe I am using dark chocolate chips. However, these can be substituted by milk or white chocolate or a mixture of all three if you fancy. I have tried these with milk chocolate and they were very tasty just as well. White chocolate and cranberries, on the other hand, are a classic combo and therefore I am sure that they will also be delicious. I leave it up to you to choose your favourite type of chocolate here. 🙂
When I make these cookies, I find that they are even better the next day. The flavours mingle together even further and the cookie has a better bite.
This is another easy recipe, which does not take a lot of time to make. And the best thing… you will end up with a delicious cookie, much better than the store bought ones!
I hope you enjoy baking these cookies and sharing them with your family/friends… or maybe eating them just by yourself because they are too good to share! 😀
