Ingredients

For the caramelized walnuts

  • 1/2 cup of walnuts
  • 1/8 cup of sugar
  • 1 tsp butter

For the dough

  • 120 g butter
  • 50 g brown sugar
  • 30 g white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 150 g flour
  • 1/2 cup of caramelized walnuts chopped
  • 1 small apple diced

Optional

  • Some melted chocolate for decoration

Instructions

Walnuts

  • Heat a shallow non-stick pan over medium heat. Add the walnuts, sugar and butter and start stirring. When the sugar starts to get to a light brown and every walnut is coated, pour everything onto a sheet of baking paper and seperate the nuts quickly before they all stick together.

Cookie Dough

  • In a bowl cream together the butter and the sugar.
  • Add the egg, salt and vanilla and mix well.
  • Add the flour and baking powder.
  • Finally work the walnuts and the apples into your dough.
  • Chill for 20min in the fridge and heat your oven to 180°C / 356°F.
  • Roll the cookie dough into little balls and place on a baking sheet. Leave some room, because the dough will spread. Bake for 10-15 min or until golden brown.
