100g plain flour
1 large egg yolk
5 tbsp of milk
2 level tbsp of cocoa powder
1. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
2. Next sift in the flour and corn flour into the mixture and continue to mix until well combined.
Then add the egg and milk until the mixture comes together forming a stiff dough.
3. Divide the dough in half. Wrap one half in cling film and place in the freezer for 10
minutes. Add the cocoa powder to the other half and combine well, then also wrap in cling
film and place in freezer.
4. Roll out the dough balls separately into rectangles to a thickness of approx. 3mm. Then
carefully place the chocolate rectangle onto the plain dough, pressing together firmly. Then
roll up the dough lengthwise so as the plain dough is on the outside. Once rolled trip the
edges at the top and bottom.
5. Place in the freezer for a further 10 minutes or alternatively place in the fridge for 30minutes.
6. Finally remove from the freezer, cut into slices and place on a baking tray. Bake the cookies
for 15-20 minutes at 180C or until golden. Place on a wire rack to cool.
- After a long day, I have to say having a few of these chocolatey coils with a cold glass of milk was the perfect way to relax. They are light, crunchy and chocolatey, a perfect combination.
- When rolling up the dough don't panic if you can see a few cracks. Once placed in the cling film you will be able to smooth these out easily.
- Though these cookies are quite straightforward to make I think they really grab peoples attention. They have the WOW factor so to speak and don't last long around the house or in work!
