  • 450 grams farina 00
  • 2 spoons farina 00
  • 1 teaspoon yeast
  • 1/4 teaspoon bicarbonate
  • 1 + 1/2 teaspoon sale
  • 225 grams donkey at room temperature
  • 170 grams Brown sugar
  • 100 grams white sugar
  • 2 egg
  • 320 grams dark chocolate coarsely chopped


    1. Set aside the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a mixing bowl.
    2. Beat the butter in a planetary mixer or a bowl with an electric whisk for a few minutes until it is creamy, then add the sugar and beat for another 2/3 minute. Reduce the speed to low and slowly add the eggs one at a time;
    3. Mix in the flour mixture, followed by the chocolate;
    4. Divide the dough into 12 equal parts and form dough piles (they do not have to be precise spheres) to be placed on a baking sheet lined with baking paper, well spaced (4 cm apart); 5. Refrigerate the pan with the biscuits for at least 30 minutes and up to 12 hours before baking at 190 ° for 15 minutes NO MORE because the cookies will need to be slightly undercooked. Remove from the oven and set aside for a few minutes before devouring them all.
