Father’s day giant cookies
- 100g Asda White Chocolate Chunks
- 150g Asda Dark Chocolate (60% cocoa solids), broken into squares
- 50g Asda Pecan Nuts
- 150g plain flour
- 1⁄2 level tsp baking powder
- 100g butter (at room temperature)
- 150g caster sugar
- 1⁄2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 large free-range egg
- Asda White Piping Icing
Put the chocolate chunks in the fridge. Pre-heat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
Microwave the chocolate in a microwavable bowl on defrost for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until melted. Leave until cold but still fluid.
Break the pecans into small pieces. Sift the flour and baking powder together. With a wooden spoon, beat the butter, sugar and vanilla in a large bowl until creamy.
Scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula. Add the egg and beat in.
Stir in the dark chocolate and flour, and add the nuts and chocolate chunks.
Put heaped tablespoons of the mixture on the baking trays, leaving a gap between each, and flatten with the back of a spoon. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
Leave for about 10 minutes so the cookies are still warm but cool enough to handle. Make a hole in each with an apple corer. Leave to cool completely.
Ice ‘DAD’ on each cookie with the piping and thread a ribbon through the holes.
