1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon canola oil
½ cup (100 g) granulated sugar
1 pinch kosher salt
1 large egg
¼ cup (30 g) cornstarch
1 ½ cups (190 g) all-purpose flour
1 cup (175 g) semi-sweet chocolate chips
6 chocolate truffles


  1. In a large bowl, combine the butter, vanilla, canola oil, sugar, and salt and beat with a hand mixer until smooth.

  3. Add the cornstarch, flour, and chocolate chips. Using a spatula, mix well until fully combined.
  4. Cover the dough with plastic and chill in the fridge at least 30 minutes to overnight
  5. Grease a 6-cup muffin tin with nonstick spray. Divide the cookie dough into 12 portions. Take one and line the base and sides of a cup. Repeat with the remaining cups.
  6. Fill each cookie cup with a chocolate truffle.
  7. Take another portion of cookie dough, flatten with your fingers to create a 2-inch (5-cm) circle. Place the circle over the top of the filling, and press down the edges to make sure it seals to the other dough. Repeat with the remaining cookies.
