You have no idea what to cook? Then you have come to the right place

In collaboration within the food and lifestyle magazine KACHEN, the Luxembourg Times presents the recipe of the week.

Yields approx. 10 cookies - 10 minutes + 30 minutes cooling time + 10 minutes baking time


  • 115 g butter
  • 50 g brown sugar
  • 50 g white sugar
  • 165 g flour
  • 1 tbsp vanilla paste or sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1 egg
  • 30 g cocoa
  • 1⁄2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1⁄2 tsp cardamom
  • 1⁄2 tsp baking powder
  • 200 g chocolate chips with chilli


1. Whisk the softened butter and the sugar until creamy

2. Add salt, vanilla paste, and egg and mix until homogenous

3. Then add the flour, the cocoa, and the spices. Only add the chocolate chips at the very end

4. Cool the dough in the fridge for at least half an hour - this will prevent the cookies from spreading too much when baked

5. On a baking tray lined with baking parchment, distribute the cookies with a spoon and bake for 8-10 minutes (depending on their size) at 170°C

6. (For the DIY jars: All jars are suitable to be made into these sweet gifts. Add all the dry ingredients to the jar, but keep the sugar separate, as it needs to be mixed with the butter in the first step. A practical solution for this would be a coffee filter and a string.)
