Chocolate Cookies

Chocolate Cookies from the book 'Cookies, Muffins and Co' by Pascale Weeks.

100 gr fine dark chocolate
125 gr half-salted butter
50 gr of sugar
75 gr of brown sugar
1 spoon of vanilla flavouring
1 egg
175 gr of flour
1 spoon of yeast
Pinch of salt

Chop the chocolate into small pieces using a very sharp knife. Mix the sugar and butter in a bowl to obtain a creamy mixture. Add the egg, the vanilla flavoring, and mix. Add the flour, yeast, and chocolate, and mix to into a smooth, soft paste. Roll the mixture into a sausage shape to the desired diameter of the cookies. Leave to cool in the fridge for an hour or so.
Cut into cookie-slices, and cook in the oven for 10 minutes at 180°c. The cookies should be white, and still soft. Take out of the oven, and leave to cool on a tray. The cookies will keep for up to 2 days in a airtight container.
