Courtney's Cookies
« on: August 08, 2019, 04:23:11 am »
This is a recipe I picked up off somewhere on the internet but I haven't got a note of the origin so cannot attribute it to anyone.  If you recognise the recipe, let me know and please accept my apologies.

The recipe is named after my neighbour whose mum is a professional cook / caterer.  I gave one to Courtney and she said it was better than anything her mum made, so I decided that was a good enough name to use.

Very quick and easy, but be organised pre-measure everything, grind the oats and chocolate first.


95g butter
160g rapadura sugar
1 egg
tsp vanilla extract
100g rolled oats, processed to a fine powder (8 seconds, speed 8)
150g white flour
Pinch salt
tsp baking powder
tsp bicarbonate of soda
100g chocolate bits, grated finely
60g nuts, chopped (optional)
80g chocolate bits


Preheat oven to 180˚ / 165 FF and grease or line baking trays.

Cream rapadura and butter.

Add egg and vanilla and mix in.

Add flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, bicarb soda and mix.

Add the choc chips, grated chocolate and nuts and combine well.

Use an icecream scoop or roll into balls (no need to flatten) and place 5 cm apart on tray.  Bake for 10 - 12 minutes.

These are really addictive so I don't know the storage time, they never seem to last more than a day or two.

These sound fabulous and just the sort of thing we like to eat. Definitely on the list.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Cuilidh, these biscuits sound nice.  I would need to leave out the choc bits for DH is not fond of them in biscuits.  Might add cherries & sultanas instead.  I have a GD called Courtney, she would be tickled pink to think they had her name.

I think cranberries would be nice as well, Margaret.

Cookie - these are absolutely gorgeous and so very quick and easy.
