Love Cookies

Baked with lots of love and decorated with royal icing. Bake it to your loved ones and share the love!

Makes: 24 cookies
Preparation and cooking time: 40 minutes

1 cup all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon baking powder

¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

Pinch of salt

½ cup semisweet chocolate chips

¼ stick butter

1 egg

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Royal icing:

In a heatproof bowl, melt the chocolate chips and butter over a saucepan filled with simmering water. Make sure that the bottom of the bowl is not touching the water. Stir the chocolate until it starts melting, turn off the heat and continue stirring until no lumps remain. Keep the melted chocolate aside.

In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, cocoa and salt together.

In another bowl, whisk the egg with the melted chocolate well. Then add the dry ingredients gradually until it forms a dough.

Separate the dough into two halved

Spread each half to 1 cm inch thickness

Freeze the dough for 20 minutes

Preheat the oven to 190 C, cut the dough, bake it for 5-7 minutes or until you see the edges become brown (don’t burn them!)

Let the cookies cool, decorate with royal icing and serve them cold
