Chocolate Cookies with Fleur de Sel

For the third Sunday in advent I’m providing you a recipe for super delicious chocolate cookies sprinkled with fleur de sel. Chocolate and coarse sea salt are such a great combo! If you haven’t tried it yet, give it a chance by now.

These cookies are totally easy to make in no time (ok, minus the time for chilling the dough). Just the right thing, if you have no nerves anymore for using cookie cutters.

In the time before Christmas I want to stock a whole different bunch of cookies. Some with chocolate, some filled with jam, some tossed in sugar, some made with cookie cutters, some just rolled in a log and cut, classic and fancy ones, new and tried and trusted ones.

With these cookies the chocolate section should have been done. But then I made some so called Spekulatius (speculoos or spiced cookies). So called because in my opinion they didn’t deserve the name itself. They were lame and so I pimped them with some chocolate glaze. Now you even know my tip for mediocre cookies: (good) chocolate glaze.

The background of this whole try speculoos recipe thing (this was my second attempt of trying a Spekulatius recipe and the first one was even worse) is, that I’m looking for THE speculoos recipe. Speculoos are those Belgian Spekulatius (spiced cookies) and with chocolate glaze they are even much better than their German siblings. But since now I haven’t succeeded in finding THE recipe. So the search goes on, but I may shift it to next year.
