I have only previously tried 2 Angela Day recipes but that is changing. What I have tried so far have been so good. These chocolate cookies are perfect for Valentines day. I made these yesterday and my husband is taking them to work to give to the ladies in his department as a little Valentines gift. I did not sandwich the cookies together as I prefered the idea of them being open with the topping showing. I used a slab of white chocolate instead of white chocolate discs. I am yet to find mint extract or mint essence anywhere so stuck to the pink. I did not have strawberry extract either but I did have some frozen pureed strawberries which I made by slowly heating chopped strawberries with about a teaspoon of sugar. I defrosted and warmed the strawberry puree before adding it to the melted chocolate, I did also add a drop of pink gel food colouring.
The cookie dough was a little bit dry and cracked when rolling, this didn’t matter too much as the cracks were covered with icing. This may have been because I used Orgran ‘No Egg’ instead of real eggs because my son has an egg allergy. In future I will use about a tablespoon less flour than specified, this should mean that the dough is less dry.
Try them, you will not be disappointed
