Give Santa the shock of a lifetime when he bites into these amazing and delicious cookies. On the outside, they look like a chocolate chunk cookie, but they taste so much better than the classic.
The secret lies in step one, infusing the butter with fresh basil. This important step may sound odd, but the result is a hint of "something" that taste great but remains your little secret. St. Nick will definitely know these are special without being able to put his finger on what makes them so good.

Large handful of fresh basil leaves
10 tablespoons of butter
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
1 3/4 cup (230 g) all-purpose flour
