    • 50 g of butter
    • 70 g of chocolate chips or dark chocolate flakes
    • 150 g of white flour of type 00

    • Teaspoons
    • Wooden ladles
    • Baking plate
    • Baking paper
    • Grid for cooling biscuits

    2. Add the egg and work everything again with the wooden ladle.

    Did you know that
    Some recipes suggest replacing the fine salt with coarse salt for the preparation of cookies. In this variant, the use of fine salt is suggested to obtain a more delicate flavor.

    1. As a last ingredient add the chocolate chips (it is also possible to use simple chocolate flakes): you will have to obtain an extremely dense mixture.
    2. Line two plates with baking paper. With the help of two teaspoons, divide the dough into tufts weighing approximately 20-25 g each: arrange the tufts on the baking tray, taking care to keep a certain distance between them because the biscuits , during cooking, they swell and enlarge.
    3. Heat the oven to 180 ° C: when it is hot, bake the two plates for 15 minutes.

    Being prepared with ammonium bicarbonate, a strong exhalation will inevitably be released during cooking: what has been said is absolutely normal and the ammonia-like odor will disappear when the biscuits have cooled.

    2. Serve cold.
