Chocolate Curd Spelt Cookie Cups

© 2019 |

These nutty spelt cookie cups filled with smooth, creamy chocolate curd and topped with chocolate covered macadamia nuts make for a festive holiday dessert or a treat for any occasion. Instead of chocolate covered nuts, you can garnish them with some chantilly cream.

DoughChocolate Curd
  • 150 g Refined spelt flour
  • 30 g Ground hazelnut
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 115 g Unsalted butter, softened
  • 150 g Raw sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 Large egg
  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F. Lightly grease a 24-hole mini muffin pan with a bit of melted butter.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the spelt flour, baking soda and sea salt. Using an electric mixer, beat butter and raw sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Gradually beat in the flour mixture until combined.
  3. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls and place in the muffin pan. Bake 10-12 minutes until golden brown.
  4. Remove from oven and use the back of a shot glass to press down into the center of each cookie ball, creating an indentation deep enough for the filling. Cool completely before removing from the pan.
  5. For the filling: Whisk egg yolks, evaporated milk, and raw sugar in a medium saucepan until combined. Add in butter and cook on medium heat, whisking constantly, until thick. Turn off the heat. Stir in vanilla extract and chopped chocolate until smooth and well-blended. The curd will firm up more when it's cold.
  6. Fill the cookies cups with chocolate cream and top with a chocolate coated macadamia nuts and some sprinkles if desired. You won't need the whole batch of chocolate filling. Save the rest in a jar in the fridge for up to about a week. | © 2019 | | © 2019 |

Not sure my comment went through using name and url. Wondering if any of my comments have gone through? So I'm trying the anonymous one now to see if that works.
