“When life gives you lemons, make lemon juice”.. well, I think my life is mostly sending cocoa powder my way these days, so this time I decided to make cookies .. correction.. chocolate mint cookies!

This delicious recipe was taken from the books of one of the most popular chefs in the world.. Nigella Lawson!!

I actually tried to use an apple shaped cookie cutter (see picture below) but since it was my first time, they did not come out right, but hey… they are round atleast 🙂

All you need is this yummy recipe.. trust me! I made 1/4th of Nigella’s recipe so that made 4 cookies! Also, the baking time was about 5-7 minutes longer in my oven.

Texture test: The batter for a cookie is very gooey and sort of stiff in comparison to a runny batter that is made for cakes/ cupcakes.


Time spent in Kitchen: 1 hour including baking time

Price range of the total cost of all ingredients: INR 100-150 (for the 4 cookies)
