Chocolate Chip Cookies with Lime

I got another cookie recipe for you. No peanut butter included this time :-) But there is something about the combination of chocolate and lime. This cookie recipe can be variated in many ways. You could try orange or lemon zest, coconut flakes, white or milk chocolate... whatever you feel like! Also, the dough might be prepared well in advance. Just leave it in the freezer until you want to use it.

(from: Leila Lindholm - Piece of Cake)

125g soft butter
80g brown sugar
1 egg
90g flour
15g rolled oats
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
100g dark chocolate
grated zest of one lime

Beat butter and sugar. Then add the egg and beat until creamy. Mix flour, rolled oats, baking powder and salt and add to your batter. Roughly chop chocolate and, together with the lime zest, add to the batter. Form a roll of about 5cm diameter out of your dough and put in the freezer for about 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Take the dough out of the freezer, cut into about 1cm thick slices and put onto the tray. Bake in the middle of the oven for about ten minutes.
