Step by step recipe:

  1. 10 min.Cookies : Photo of step #1
    In the bowl of a mixer, put 60 g brown sugar, 125 g caster sugar, ½ teaspoon Bicarbonate of (baking) soda and 125 g butter (softened).

    If you have a Kenwood mixer, use the "K" beater.

    Switch on mixer, and knead until dough is smooth, then add the egg.

    Then add 200 g flour, a little at a time. Stop mixer when mixture is smooth again.

    You have made the basic cookie dough, and you need to add the "extras".

    Add 190 g rolled oats or muesli, 100 g chocolate chips and 100 g flaked almonds.

    Replace the "K" with the normal beater, switch on the mixer and knead until everything is thoroughly mixed.

    Gather the dough into a kind of flat thick cake, wrap in plastic film, and put in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

    Preheat oven to 200°C or 392°F.

    After this time, remove the dough from the fridge. Take a tablespoonful.

    Shape into a ball in your hand, and place on a baking sheet.

    Press ball down firmly to form the cookie.

    Cookies should be fairly flat, but not completely, it's a matter of taste. The thinner they are the crisper, thicker cookies stay soft in the middle.

    You can also use a spoon to tidy the edges of your cookies.

    Another method: roll out dough covered with a sheet of aluminium foil (to prevent from sticking).
  10. 5 min.Cookies : Photo of step #10
    Then cut out perfectly round cookies with cutters or simply using a glass.
  11. 20 min.Cookies : Photo of step #11
    Fill up your baking sheet by whichever method, and put in the oven for about 20 minutes.
  12. Cookies : Photo of step #12
    Cookies brown fast, so be careful to not overcook so that they stay a little moist.

    Leave to cool on a wire rack, and keep in an airtight tin or jar.


Once the basic dough is made, you can let your imagination guide you and (for example) replace almonds with walnuts, chocolate with raisins or dried apricots, etc. Everything is possible (or nearly).
