Salted Peanut and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Always used to love eating something sweet and something salty at the same time. Like salt sticks and chocolate or vanilla ice cream with pommes frites, of course home made. In my childhood during the winter we often had a warm soup and something sweet served afterwards. Well, I always ate the sweet dish first and the soup at the end. This haven't changed. Though lately, I have only published sweet treats, I can assure you that I also cook savoury meals, yet nothing special. So until then please enjoy these sweet and salty cookies!

makes about 30 

125 g buckwheat flour

125 g flour
175 g butter
50 g sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 egg

70 g salted peanuts
100 g dark or milk chocolate chip

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Cream soft butter with sugar until fluffy, add vanilla extract and finally beat in the egg. Coarsly chop peanuts. Sift flour on top of the butter mixture, add chocolate chip and peanuts and knead everything together. Take the dough and form an about 3-4 cm diameter roll. Cut roll in about 0,5 cm slices and put them onto the baking paper covered sheet. Flatten them with the help of your fingers and bake about 10 minutes.
