Daim cookies with walnuts

6 Jun


The Daim bar (originally known as Dajm in the original Swedish) is a crunchy butter almond bar covered in milk chocolate. You can buy them at IKEA!

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 handful Daim candy bars, chopped
1 handful walnuts, broken

Cream the butter with the sugars using an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy (approximately 30 seconds). Beat in the egg and the vanilla extract for another 30 seconds. In a mixing bowl, sift together the dry ingredients and beat into the butter mixture at low speed for about 15 seconds. Stir in the walnuts and Daim candies.

Using a tablespoon, drop cookie dough onto a greased cookie sheet about 3 inches apart. Bake in preheated oven for about 12 minutes or until nicely browned around the edges.

Tip: They are even better on the second day!
