"His countenance, pale and gracefully reserved, was surrounded by ringlets of honey-coloured hair, and with its straight nose, its enchanting mouth, its expression of sweet and divine gravity, it recalled Greek sculpture of the noblest period; yet despite the purest formal perfection, it had such unique personal charm that he who now contemplated it felt he had never beheld, in nature or in art, anything so consummately successful."
Death in Venice, Thomas Mann 

This is the cookie version of chocolate and olive oil toast. I recommend using a strong-flavoured extra-virgin olive oil and the darkest chocolate you can find.

  1. I have never heard of chocolate and olive oil on toast, but it sounds absolutely amazing. It's funny how olive oil goes so well with rich sweets, I had an ice cream sundae topped with olive oil once and it was just magical. I can only imagine how tasty it would be in a chocolate chip cookie recipe. Love the photos too, just beautiful!

    1. You should definitely try the olive oil and chocolate toast (I usually bake a slice of bread with a few chocolate squares on top until almost melted, drizzle with olive oil and sea salt).
      I will have to try this ice cream topping!
