Mini Chocolate-Filled Cookies Recipe

Mini Chocolate Filled Cookies


  • 1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup almond flour
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 3/4 cup unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 2 ounces semi- or bittersweet chocolate, chopped (1/3 cup)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat 7 tablespoons butter with sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add vanilla and zest, then both flours and salt; beat until a dough starts to form. Transfer to a work surface; knead until a firm dough forms, 1 minute. Scoop 1 level teaspoon of dough; roll into a ball. Place on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment. Repeat with remaining dough, spacing balls 1 inch apart. Freeze until firm, 15 minutes. Meanwhile, melt chocolate and remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Let cool until thick and spreadable, 20 minutes. Bake cookies until domed and light golden, about 16 minutes. Let cool completely, about 45 minutes. Spread 1/2 teaspoon chocolate mixture on flat side of one cookie; sandwich with flat side of a second. Repeat with remaining cookies. Let chocolate set before serving. Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days.

beetroot tart

Beetroot & shallot tatins

Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7 and grease 2 x 15cm sandwich tins with solid bases. In a non-stick pan, gently cook the shallots in the oil until golden and softened. If they start to colour before softening, add a dash of water and cover the pan. Tip out the shallots and wipe out the pan. Put the butter in the pan with the nuts, garlic, rosemary, maple syrup and vinegar. Season and allow to bubble until syrupy. Tip in the shallots and cook briefly, stirring to coat them. Spoon half the shallots and syrup into each tin, then add the beetroots, alternating them with the shallots as you go. Cut the pastry in half, then roll out each piece on a lightly floured surface until just larger than the tins. Place the pastry over the vegetables and tuck it down the insides of the tin. Trim off any excess with scissors and pierce the middle of the pastry with a knife to make a hole for steam to escape. Bake for 15-20 mins until golden. Cool for a few mins in the tin, then turn out onto plates and top with the rocket.

Mix the oregano, olive oil, lemon juice and 1/2 tsp flaky sea salt in a large bowl and season well with ground black pepper. Put a spoonful of the dressing in a second bowl, add the lamb steaks and turn to coat. Marinate for 5 mins. Heat a griddle pan over a medium-high heat, or set the grill to its hottest setting. Discard the marinade and cook the lamb on the griddle or grill for 4-5 mins each side or until done to your liking. Transfer to a plate and cover loosely with foil. Leave to rest for 3-5 mins, then slice thickly. While the lamb is resting, add the tomatoes, cucumber and olives to the dressing in the large bowl and toss lightly. Divide between 4 plates and top with small chunks of feta. Place the sliced lamb on top, scatter with the mint leaves and serve.
