Trash-Can Cookie

Lunar New Year is all around the corner ✨

Back in my place, I mean both Vietnam area in general and my house in particular, Lunar New Year is considered as an occasion to clean up everything-that-needs-to-go of the past year. Old clothes, shoe boxes, exams papers, broken house-hold appliances or outdated relationships that you swear to fix months ago.

And not to mention the leftover munchies, or should I say, chocolates, nuts and half-consumed snacks.

But we’ve all heard about cleaning, haven’t we? So lemme introduce my kind of interpretation.

Fellas, say hello to my Trash-Can-Cookie. Take a rummage at your kitchen for these:

  • 112gr burnt butter
  • 80gr caster sugar
  • 180gr oatmeal flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda + 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 whole egg
  • 1 egg yolk

here’s the fun part, these won’t need any measurement

  • chocolates chunks (duh!)
  • crunchy snacks (Cheetos, Doritos, O’Star, Swing or what the hell you’re having left)
  • maybe a half of an Oreo pack
  • mixed nuts from your granola
  • M&Ms from the cooling compartment, add some colors. be creative.

Have your burnt butter cool down to room temperature.

Caster sugar might add a bit crispy to your treat, but it bugs me every once in a while when the dissolve process takes too long. You can ease it by grind the sugar in a food processor until it becomes a nearly-fine texture. Oh, and don’t worry about the crunchy part, we’ve got the snacks to cover that.

Pour the butter onto the sugar. Using a whisk, or a spatula to have everything well-combined. Whisk in the egg and egg yolk, one at a time.

In a large bowl, mix the baking soda and baking powder into your oat flour.

Sift the dry ingre into the liquid one. Using the same whisk to mix it all up.

Slowly (and excitingly) add in your crunchy bites. Take your spatula to make sure you can see the M&Ms or chips can be recognized from any spot of the dough. Wrap it in cling film and chill for 30′.

Have the oven preheated at 180*C. Scoop out the dough and place it quite far from each other, in case it decides to spread. Bake for 12-15′. I usually do 15 to ensure the crispness once I give it a try!

Now grab a seat. And enjoy the bites 🖤
