This recipe makes 22 chewy and delicious Daim cookies.

You need:

  • 150g butter
  • 150g brown sugar
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 300g plain flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • ½ tsp Bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tbsp milk
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla sugar
  • 5 Daim bars (28g), roughly chopped

Melt the butter and set aside to cool down

Mix the flour, baking soda, vanilla sugar and salt in a bowl and set side

Mix the sugars with the cooled, melted butter and stir until there are no lumps. Combine egg, egg yolk and milk and mix with the sugar and butter until thoroughly combined.

Add the flour bit by bit until everything is incorporated. Add the Daim pieces and then chill the dough for a few hours

Pre-heat oven to 190C. Line your baking trays with paper and add approx. 40g of cookie dough in rough balls, about 5 cm apart. Cook for 8-10 minutes, until just golden, then remove from the oven immediately and transfer to a cooling rack (the middle should still be slightly soft when you take them out of the oven – they will harden up after a while

The cookies will be best after about half an hour – slightly warm but still chewy in the middle!

Serve your delicious chewy cookies with a glass of milk
