Double Chocolate Cookies

Thanks to all of you who wrote nice comments on my dining-room! If you could see it now, it's an awful mess! We tore down the drywalls, because I suspected they were just stuck on the stone walls. I was right, and this is really bad: stones needs air... So we're going to redo all that. The bad news is that the boiler and electricity meters were on those drywalls, so they'll need to be removed and put back... Days with no hot water and possibly no electricity are ahead of me!!!

Les travaux réservent comme toujours dans une vieille maison leur lot de surprises, essentiellement mauvaises. Je suis épuisée et cela ne fait que commencer! Isoler les trois murs qui ne l'avaient pas été va s'éterniser car il a falloir déposer la chaudière et la réinstaller, de même avec le compteur électrique. Du coup, des jours sans eau chaude et sans électricité pointent le bout de leur nez. Et il ne me reste plus que deux solutions: pleurer ou me réconforter avec du chocolat. Qui d'autre préfère la deuxième idée?

So, what's a girl to do? I can see only two possibilities here: a) cry all day long - b) eat chocolate.
Who else prefers the second version?

Now, since you've been very nice with me lately, I'll share the recipe here with you.

1 cup ¼ flour
3 tablespoon of cocoa
1 cup of raw sugar
100 g of melted salted butter (I'm pretty sure you can use unsalted if you prefer)
3 eggs
1/2 or 2/3 cup chocolate chips

 Voilà ce qu'il va vous falloir :

185 g de farine

3 cuillerées à soupe de cacao

1 tasse de sucre roux (env. 150 g ?)

100 g de beurre salé fondu

3 œufs
100 g de pépites de chocolat

Then, listen carefully and take notes, while I tell you what to do!
Mix all the ingredients and put small amout of batter on a baking tray (lined with baking paper). Cook for about 10 minutes in the oven (350°F).

Ensuite, c'est très compliqué, mélangez tous les ingrédients et déposez des cuillerées du mélange sur une plaque garnie de papier cuisson. Cuire environ 10 minutes dans un four à 180°C.

Enjoy with a nice cup of tea and a dash of renovation dust. Yummy!

A manger de préférence saupoudré de poussière de placo, ce n'en est que meilleur.

See you soon,

A bientôt,

PS: I can see on the preview that the size of the writing changes in the middle if the post, I have no idea why and I am too tired to understand why... My eyes are beginning to say they feel better closed.

  8. Isn't chocolate a comfort food anyway? Your cookies look yummy.

  9. You've done worse, this renovation will be over before you can say double chocolate chip cookie! That cake tin is so pretty! I love the idea of putting cookie on a pedestal =) And what a gourgeous stone wall view you have! Is there a post somewhere i can see a bit more of your pretty surroundings?

    1. I promise I will update the "Tour The Little White House" page some day!

  10. Chocolate cookies, I'm in heaven! Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe. I appreciate you stopping by with your kind words, thank you.

  11. Chocolate is always better than crying. I hope everything is done quickly and correctly for you. I can't imagine being with out hot water for long so if you do need to cry into your chocolate I could totally understand.

  12. Your chocolate cookies look so yummy ... even the batter looks good! Sorry to hear of all the work that's ahead of you. You might have to be baking a double batch of those cookies. ;-)
