A cookie swap just wouldn’t be complete without a visit from Sandra, the author of Sandra’s Easy Cooking: Savoring the Sweet Moments.
Sandra’s blog is a warm and inviting place, perfect for lingering over a nice cup of coffee. She’s sweet, and kind, and supportive, and… she brought chocolate. Chocolate Rock Cookies to be precise!
Don’t you just love her already?
I am Sandra @Sandra’s Easy Cooking, and I am absolutely thrilled to be here today.
My website is all about simple, affordable and easy recipes. I live in Nashville with my three adorable kids and my husband.
Besides cooking, I love photography so much that one point of my young (lol!) life I wanted to be a photographer. I also love music, art and of course my family. I enjoy blogging, and I am so happy that I’ve virtually “met” so many amazing and supportive people all over the world in our big food community.
I made these cookies just for this event! I’ve honestly never made them before, but we all love them very much.
Thank you, Jen for this opportunity to be featured on your beautiful website.
Chocolate Rock Cookies
Yields: About15 cookies
1 Tbs. soft unsalted butter, plus extra for greasing the pan
1 large egg, room temperature
½ tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract
¼ c. Skim milk
½ c. sugar
1 ½ c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
½ c. ground Almonds
2.2 oz Hershey Chocolate (½ of the 4.4oz sized bar), roughly chopped
Nonstick cooking spray
In a large mixing bowl cream the egg and butter together. Add vanilla extract, milk and sugar and blend well. Slowly add flour, baking powder and ground almonds and mix until well combined. Using a spatula, stir in the chopped chocolate.
Make a thick, long roll. Spread out some plastic wrap or foil and spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray just a bit before putting the dough on it. Wrap the foil tightly around the dough and place in the fridge for 30 minutes (or overnight and use when ready for baking).
Preheat the oven on 375F (190C).
Take the dough out of the fridge and grease a baking pan.
Cut the prepared dough roll into ½” rolls, and place on the prepared baking pan.
Bake for 25 minutes or until they are golden brown.
Serve warm! Preheat a bit in the microwave for later use.
*Note: Usually you don’t have to roll and cut this kind of cookie. You can simply grab it with a spoon and place right on the baking pan. It is up to you which method you will pick to use!
Thank you, Jen for inviting me to join your event. It was pleasure and honor to be included!
Happy Holidays from Sandra’s Easy Cooking!!!!
I hope you’ll return the holiday cheer by stopping by to say hello to Sandra (bloggers just LOVE that!).
