Learn how to make it
Interested to see if you could make it too? Here’s the recipe for you to try at home too:
250g of butter
1 ¼ cup of brown sugar
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
2 ½ cups of wheat flour
½ cup of corn flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate
6 tablespoons of cooking oil
2 cups of chocolate chips
Add almond flakes if preferred
Instructions (translated from Malay):
1. Mix 250g of butter with brown sugar and vanilla essence in a mixing bowl. Break in the egg. Do not use a mixer; stir gently with a ladle or spoon, just to make the mixture even. You can also use your hands.
2. In the same mixing bowl, add some wheat flour, corn flour, sodium bicarbonate, baking powder, and cooking oil. With a slow movement, mix the ingredients evenly.
3. When the mixture is even, add two cups of chocolate chips and stir them in slowly.
4. Add almond flakes or almond nibs, cornflakes, or Nestum oats, whatever tickles your fancy. Stir well.
5. Cover the bowl of cookie dough and put it in the fridge for 20 minutes or more, if your fridge is not cold. Make sure your batter turns a bit harder.
6. Grease your baking tray with some butter. Pinch the cookie dough into little blobs and arrange them on the tray.
7. Pre-heat the oven to 150 degrees, then bake them for about 20 minutes.
8. Remove the cookies from the oven. Let them cool so they will be crunchy. After that, you can dig in.
