Choc Chip Cookies
It doesn't get much better than a homemade choc cookie, they taste so much better when you have made them yourself and, of course, are far better for your bank balance! Easy to whip up and will last a good few days in an air tight container .... haven't tried freezing them (they never last long enough) You choose the favour of chocolate chips or mix as I did.
The Recipe Ingredients
150g butter, softened
80g demerara sugar
80g golden caster sugar
2tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg
225g plain flour
1tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
200 choc chips
Preheat your oven Gas 5 (190C) and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper
Put the butter and sugar in the mixer and beat well until creamy, then add the vanilla extract and egg and beat again. Add the flour, baking powder and salt and mix again till combined. Finally mix in the choc chips.
Use a dessert spoon to scoop the mixture onto a baking tray - I did 6 at a time.
Cook for 10 mins until starting to colour, them remove from the oven and leave on the paper to cool before transferring to a wire rack.
The mixture will make about 18-20 cookies - enjoy!!
