A healthy and oh, so delicious take on a classic cookie, mine has almond flour, sprouted flour and rich, dark chocolate in the center.
Makes about 30 cookies
Preheat overn to 350oF and line 2 baking sheets with parchment.
Place all ingredients for the dough in a medium bowl. Using a stand mixer, hand mixer or whisk, mix ingredients until a sticky, firm dough forms.
With damp hands, form the dough into 1-inch balls and arrange on baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Using your thumb, make an indent in the center of each cookie. Bake for 10-12 minutes, rotating the trays midway through baking. Note that 10 minutes will yield a soft cookie, while 12 minutes will yield a firmer cookie.
Carefully transfer the cookies to a wire cooking rack and once cooled, fill them with chocolate filling. Make the chocolate filling by placing chocolate and rice syrup in a glass bowl over simmering water. Stir constantly until the chocolate is smooth, creamy and shiny. Place a dollop in the center of each cookie.
Cook's Tip: You may also put fruit preserves in the center of the cookies in place of chocolate. When you press your thumb into the centers of the cookies, scoop a tiny amount of preserves to fill them. Bake the cookies and the preserves will melt and set.
