Chocolate Chip Cookies

The most simplest and quickest cookies , they are a life saver specially when my son forgets to tell me about the bake sale in school but remembers it at the last minute and doesn’t want to  go without a contribution.  I make  cookies  from half the dough and then add 1 tbsp cocoa powder to the remaining dough  and made some chocolate chocolate chip cookies and some by blending the 2 dough.

Prep:15 min  

Cook:10-15 min 

Ingredients

 

  • 25g caster sugar
  • 115g butter
  • 75g soft brown sugar
  • few drops of vanilla extract
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 150g chocolate chips of your choice
  • 150g plain flour
  • pinch of baking powder

Directions

 

  1. Preheat the oven to 175 C  and line a baking tray with grease proof paper or aluminum foil.
  2. Cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the beaten egg and vanilla to the mixture and mix well.
  4. Next add the chocolate chips and mix together to ensure they are well distributed. 
  5. Mix the flour and baking powder together, and add a little at a time to the mixture, until a soft dough is formed. You should be able to mould the dough into shapes without it being too sticky, if it is sticky, add a tablespoon of flour each time to get it the right consistency.
  6. Roll an amount into a ball about the size of a walnut and softly press down onto the baking sheet. Don’t place cookies too close together as they do spread.
  7. Cook for about 10 – 12 minutes. When you take them out of the oven, they will still be quite soft, leave for a while on the tray until they start to harden, then move to a cooling rack.
