Daim Cookies-Daimkakor

Hey so this recipe I actually found in the newspaper and was I pretty excited to bake these cookies because I hadn’t tried the Daim Chocolate Bar before. They were different but not my first choice because I didn’t really like the  crunchy caramel centre (a bit too sweet for me). A little background on the chocolate bar is that they are very popular in Sweden, originating in Scandinavia during the 1950’s and were bought by Kraft foods and renamed to Dime. Now it’s back to Daim!!

150g butter
300g plain flour
½ tsp bicarbonate soda
½ vanilla extract
¼ tsp sea salt
150g brown sugar
100g caster sugar
1 egg
1 egg yolk
2 tbsp milk
5 Daim bars (roughly chopped)

1. Melt the butter then leave to cool down. Combine the flour, bicarbonate soda, vanilla extract and salt in a bowl and set aside.

2. Combine both sugars with the melted butter and stir until there are no lumps. Add the egg, egg yolk and milk combining well.

3. Add the flour a little at a time and mix really well, next mix in the chopped Daim pieces and wrap in cling film and leave in the fridge for 2 hours.

4. After a couple of hours take out from the fridge and the preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and line 2 trays with parchment paper. 

5. Split the dough in half and form each piece into 12 balls and place on the baking trays. Flatten down the balls into biscuits then bake in the oven for 10 minutes until just golden. 

Once baked remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool down. They will still be slightly soft when they are warm and nice and chewy on the inside 🙂
