Chestnut flour chocolate chip cookies

Hmm... my chestnut flour is almost finished. Half a package left. What goodies shall I bake? Well I've tried the Italian fritters, they were good but I am craving for something like cookies! I'd love to try out chestnut flour in chocolate chip cookies. And so I experimented and this is what I came up with. Try them! You will be licking the platter clean!


·      9 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
·      3/4 cup granulated sugar
·      Pinch fine sea salt
·      1 large egg
·      1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour plus more for dusting
·      2/3 cup chestnut flour
·      3/4 cup pine nuts
·      3 tablespoons raisins
·      Dark chocolate chopped in small pieces
·      Special Equipment: parchment paper


Heat oven to 350º with rack in middle. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, stir together butter, sugar and salt. Mix in egg.  Add all-purpose flour, chestnut flour, pine nuts, chocolate and raisins; using clean hands, mix until just combined.

Lightly flour the palms of your hands, then roll dough into balls about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Place about 1 inch apart on prepared baking sheet, then, using fingers, press each ball into a 2 1/2-inch round.

Bake, rotating pan once halfway through, until edges of cookies are golden, about 18 minutes. Transfer cookies, still on parchment, to wire rack to cool completely. 


  1. These cookies look YUMMY!!!!!!!

  2. too bad my chestnut flour is almost gone! and where will I ever find more?
