Chocolate Chunk & Sea Salt Shortbread Cookies

Although these look like your average cookies, let me tell you they are quite different. Baked with butter, these cookies have the flavour of a shortbread biscuit but look like cookies. Hey, best of both right?


Ingredients
  • 250g cold sea salt butter
  • 100g granulated sugar 
  • 50g soft brown sugar 
  • 315g self-raising flour
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 150g milk chocolate chunks 
  • 1 large egg beaten 
  • granulated sugar for rolling 
  • coarse sea salt 

Method 

  1. Beat the butter, granulated sugar, soft brown sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy (around five minutes)
  2. Slowly add the flour mixing lightly and then add the chocolate chunks 
  3. Once the dough has been formed, roll the dough into a log shape (2" diameter), wrap in parchment paper and refrigerate for 2 hours until firm. Remove the dough from the fridge 1/2 an hour before baking as it will be easier to slice. 
  4. Preheat oven to gas mark 4 and line the trays with baking parchement. Brush the outside of the logs with egg wash and sprinkle with granulated sugar. 
  5. Slice into 1cm thick rounds and place them on the baking tray a few cm's apart as they will spread. Sprinkle with sea salt and bake for 12-15 minutes until the edges are just beginning to brown. 
  6. Let the cookies cool slightly before removing from the tray as they will be quite soft when warm.
