Louise’s Liquorice Cookies

Last night I asked my Facebook friends what they were doing. A former fellow student answered that she was  watching Best of Top Gear while eating American Cookies. She added that she had thought about replacing the walnuts with almonds, the dark chocolate chips with white chocolate, and then add some liquorice powder.

It sounded so delicious that I promised to try it out as soon as possible (she is finishing up her Master Thesis at the moment, so I don’t think that she has the time herself :-)).

I promised her, that I would name the cookies after her, if they were a success – they are not a success, they are some off the best cookies I have ever made (and tasted)!

Serve warm with a creamy vanilla ice cream or store in an airtight contain at room temperature for up to one week.

 

Ingredients (30 cookies)

1 cup butter

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup packed brown sugar

2 eggs

2 tbs. vanilla sugar

2 cups flour

1 cup oatmeal

1/2 tsp. salt

1tbs. baking soda

2 tbs. hot water

4 tbsp. cold water

3 tbsp. liquorice powder

1 1/2 cup white chocolate chips (I use Amedei Toscano White)

1 cup almonds, chopped

 

Beat together butter and sugar until soft. Beat in one egg at a time, and stir in vanilla sugar afterwards.

Dissolve baking soda in hot water, add to the batter along with salt. Whisk in oatmeal, flour, liquorice powder and cold water.

When just combined, fold in chocolate chips and almonds.

Put large spoonfuls on a pan, and bake at 350 degrees fahrenheit for 13-15 minutes.
