Lena Derisavifard - Chocolate Barberry Cookies

Chocolate Barberry Cookies

This BiBi Bakery staple is a double chocolate cookie studded with barberries – sweet tangy perfection! Barberries are a small tart berry used predominately in savory food across Iran, but these chocolatey cookies pop with the addition of these small, flavorful berries. Don’t shy away from trying this recipe because you have to chill the dough. The resting time allows the dough to hydrate, giving you a cookie with an irresistibly crispy outside and decadent brownie like inside. Nooshe jân! Jaan Nooshe! شون ناج
