Chocolate Chip Cookies...

Chocolate chip cookies!

Every now and then, I get a craving for a delicious, sweet and chocolatey choc chip cookie.  It has to be slightly chewy and with a good amount of chocolate chips in it.

Yesterday, I pulled out my Kitchenaid mixer in the morning and whipped up these cookies.  The recipe makes about 36 cookies, maybe a little less, depending on how big you make them.

You will need:
  • 250g butter softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup caster sugar
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 & 1/4 cup plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon bicarb soda
  • 375g chocolate chips, your choice of dark or milk or a combo!

A bit of early morning baking! Choc chip cookies!

 How to!
  1. preheat oven to 180 degree Celsius and prepare oven trays.
  2. beat butter, vanilla and sugars with an electric mixer, you are wanting to cream them together.  When they get going, add the egg and mix until light and fluffy.  
  3. Transfer sugar mixtures to a larger bowl and sift in the flour and bicarb soda.  Do this in 2 batches, working one cup in at a time with a wooden spoon.  The mixture will be quite stiff so you will be giving your arm a work out!
  4. Add the choc chips and mix well.
  5. Roll out tablespoons of the mixture into balls in your hand and place about 5cm apart on trays.  The cookies will spread!  Bake for about 15 minutes.
  6. Carefully cool cookies on trays.  They will be golden around the edge and still a little soft in the middle.
  7. Store in an airtight container, however, they won't last long!
Enjoy these cookies with coffee or just for a sweet treat.  You can play around with the type of chocolate chips or even add in some nuts, have fun with it!
