Chocolate Cookies With A Heart Of Jam

"Magnificent" "Yummy" "Better than shop-bought cookies"

All praise for these choc-o-jammie cookies. Please, please, hold the applause. You're making me blush.

Y,know The Stuff That Goes In
{60g} plain flour
{2.5 tbsp} cocoa powder, fairtrade
{1/4 tsp} sea salt
{1/4 tsp} bicarbonate of soda
{2.5 tbsp} organic sunflower oil
{2.5 tbsp} unsweetened soy milk
{1 tsp} vanilla extract
{75g} granulated brown sugar
{3-4 tsp} jam (I love Bonne Maman's raspberry)

Yields about six cookies

Like...How You Do It
 > Preheat your oven to 180C; line a baking tray with baking paper (I used foil because it's all we had in the cupboard...improvisation is cool).
> Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, salt, and bicarbonate of soda.
> Add wet ingredients (except the jam), and the sugar. Incorporate well.
> Dampen your hands and smush one tablespoon of mixture into a cookie shape. Keep going until all the mixture is used up.

> Bake for 5 minutes. Take out of oven and press a heart shape into the centre with your thumb. Put a wee bit of jam into the indentation. Bake for a further 6-8 minutes. Remove from oven and let sit for 2 minutes. Then, transfer to a cooling rack.
