Dainty Dwarven Delicacies #7

Ain’t ya all sweet?  Granny Redbeard goes away fer one week an’ ya’ll write in ta ask where I been.  The studios were closed last weekend, so yer Granny Redbeard couldn’t whip up a treat fer ya’ll so I’ll make it up ta ya today. 

You’ll need three eggs, 1 an’ 1/4 cups o’ sugar, 3/4 cup o’ coarsely chopped hazelnuts, 1/2 cup o’ chocolate bits or chopped semi-sweet chocolate, three cups o’ flour, 1/2 a teaspoon o’ bakin’ powder, 3/4 cup o’ raisins an’ an egg yolk, beaten.

Preheat your oven ta ’bout 350 degrees.  Beat the eggs an’ sugar ’til they’re pale yellow and thick enough ta ribbon.  Add the nuts an’ chocolate.  Sift the flour together with the bakin’ powder an’ mix gradually inta the egg an’ sugar an’ nuts an’ chocolate mixture.  Flour the raisins lightly an’ stir into the batter.  Grease a bakin’ sheet and spread the dough on it in two or three long loaves ’bout 1/3 to half an inch thick an’ ’bout three inches wide.  Brush the tops with the beaten egg yolk an’ bake fer ’bout 35 ta 45 minutes.  Cut them into one to one and 1/2 inch slices while still hot. 

Then ya’ll have a sweetie treatie from yer Granny Redbeard!  Now ya’ll run a long and check back with us again real soon!

    You gotta give them cookies a name dearie. If they’re choc-o-nut chip, hen so be it. We foodies like our food with names and titles.
