- 150 g favourite nuts, I most often use dry roasted almonds with skins still on
- 150 g unsalted butter

TM 5Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!
- Blitz nuts on speed 7 for 5 seconds then set aside.
Place butter and golden syrup into mixing bowl and heat 3min / 60deg / speed 2.
Scrape down sides and blades and repeat this step.
Add all other ingredients, including set aside blitzed nuts (but not the optional 50g of flaked or slivered nuts) and mix for 10 sec / / speed 4. Repeat if necessary until combined.
Add optional flaked or slivered nuts and mix 5 sec / speed 4.
- Roll tablespoons full of dough into a ball then flatten (with a fork or fingers!) onto a cookie sheet lined with baking paper. Allow some space for spreading. I do 9 on a square cookie sheet.
- Bake each tray of cookies at (preheated) 160deg for 8-10mins. Remove from oven and allow to cool on trays for 5 mins before transferring onto wire rack.
- Allow to cool completely to crisp up before serving.
Once dough is made it can be stored in the fridge for a week or so until ready to bake, or shape it into a log, wrap it in baking paper and store in the freezer. Take it out half hour before baking and slice 5mm slices ... then bake as above.
These are very crispy crunchy bikkies ... best served with a cuppa or a glass of milk.
