  • A crunch and yet gooey chocolate cookie. This has chopped chocolate and pecan nuts for added crunch. The cookie mixture can be prepared in advance and put in the freezer

    Ingredients

    • 100g (3½oz) butter, softened
    • 125g (4oz) light muscovado sugar
    • Yolk from 1 med egg
    • 125g (4oz) plain flour
    • 30g (1oz) cocoa powder
    • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
    • 100g bar dark chocolate (50-70% cocoa solids), roughly chopped
    • 60g (2oz) pecan nuts, chopped
    • 2 baking sheets, lined with Teflon sheet

    Method

    • Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg yolk, then sift in the flour, cocoa and bicarbonate of soda and mix well. Cool for 5 mins.

    • Add the chopped chocolate and nuts. Chill the mixture while the oven heats up to Gas Mark 5 or 190°C.

    • Divide the mixture into 10 and roll each portion into a ball. Arrange, spaced apart on the baking sheets and then press them to flatten them to about 1.5cm (½in) thick. Bake for 10-12 mins until risen and cracked but still a bit soft and gooey.

    • Cool for 5 mins, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
